A Tad More on Anna May
After posting a little last time on Anna May Wong Jeremy Goldkorn of Danwei pointed me to a nice video piece by Sexy Beijing on Anna May and the author Graham Hodges.
A nice piece that includes details of Anna May's trip to China in the 1930s that was covered extensively in the newsreels but revealed the split in opinions about Anna May. Madam Chiang for instance disliked her. The piece includes some nice clips and, what many may not realise, that Anna, though looking great, did not have a great voice sadly.
