History - Shanghai Film Queens and "Oriental" Decadence

Check out this great article from the China Daily on Chinese movie stars of the 1930s. There's also this article on how Shanghai is being reborn as the Paris of the East. And this wonderful website, called "Tales of Old China", tells what life was like in China during the European occupation, especially in Shanghai. The photo is of film star Ruan Ling-yu, one of the greatest stars of the 1930s, and it is taken from the "Tales of Old Shanghai" section of "Tales of Old China".
