A showcase of the luminous talents of silent star Anna May Wong, PICCADILLY is a 1929 drama directed by E.A. Dupont and written by Arnold Bennett. Wong was a pioneer and an icon in early Hollywood – who, in addition to appearing in more than 60 films during her remarkable career, created her own production company in 1924 to fight against typecasting.

Clicking on “How to Watch” seems just to provide the information, “You can’t.” I think that should be up front in the info on the film, to avoid the impression of click-bait.
(I believe we have the film on DVD, though, so I wonder if there are newer, restored versions.) If that information is anywhere on your site, it seems one would have to click on three more different screens to find out.
