    The Evening star. [volume], October 01, 1922, Image 78 printed a photo of them in the same outfit with the caption: "Sessue Hayakawa, Japanese screen star, and wife return from vacation in Japan. Hayakawa told newspaper men, upon landing at San Francisco, of the hostile attitude of his own people against himself. This was caused, he says, on account of the fact that much of his screen work has portrayed Japanese spies and villains."
