Lady of the Roses. The Lady of the Roses was created by the Chinese author Yu Tianfen and appeared in the photoplay “Meigui Nülang” (Hong Meigui, 1924).

A young woman who is selling roses at a newly opened entertainment park is suspected of involvement in several crimes. The patrolling policemen investigate her but are beguiled by her charms and share an assignation with her. But at length the woman’s identity is revealed, as the criminal behind the thefts, a major player in the underworld, and as a man, dressing as a woman so as to allay suspicion.
