~Yellow Men and Gold~
1922
~Plot Synopsis~
This adventurous story-within-a-story was based on a novel by Gouverneur Morris. Parrish (Richard
Dix), a young author, decides to use himself, his friends, and neighbors as characters in his latest book.
During a rainstorm (according to his tale), he finds a treasure map that he shows to Carroll, a retired sea
captain (Henry Barrows). They decide to team up and search for the treasure, but the night before they
are to leave on Carroll's ship, Parrish is drugged. The map is stolen, and he is thrown from the dock to
drown. But he's rescued by Bessie (Helene Chadwick), the American mistress of a Chinese ship, the
Shantung. Carmen (Rosemary Theby), one of Carroll's people, had warned Parrish about the captain's
treachery, so he had another map hidden away. Now he and Bessie race to find the treasure first.
