Storyline

Rhandah, who is to succeed his father, the Maharajah of Dharpuli, is sent to Oxford to be educated. The Princess Nada, to whom he is engaged, fearful of the outcome of his journey, gives him an amulet to bring him back to her in safety. At the college, he soon becomes accustomed to English customs, but refuses all invitations into society. He meets Amy, daughter of Colonel Dawe, and they become interested in each other.

Hindu heir Sessue Hayakawa (as Rhandah) leaves pretty princess Tsuru Aoki (as Nada) and his home in India to attend college in England. Ready to be distracted from his books, Mr. Hayakawa meets fast and flirty Vola Vale (as Amy Dawe). Her boyfriend and English society remind a smitten Hayakawa "Each to His Kind" and he loses girlfriend to white Eugene Palette (as Dick Larimer). Returning to India, Hayakawa carries out a deadly game of revenge. The synopsis of this unavailable film reveals a typical story. "Photoplay" (May 1917) writer Julian Johnson thought the Hayakawa family (referring to Sessue and Tsuru being married in real life), "are again employed congenially. The plot is slim, but the play is enjoyable."

**** Each to His Kind (2/5/17) Edward LeSaint ~ Sessue Hayakawa, Tsuru Aoki, Vola Vale, Eugene Palette
