Allow me the honor to introduce Anna May Wong. 🖤🏮🖤 She is a talented, intelligent, multi-lingual American-Chinese actress and sadly, she is one of the MANY talented actors who were unable to reach their height of success and popularity due to the racist laws of their time that criminalized interracial relationships in movies, which drastically affected the casting of every movie in the 30s and 40s. #shanghaiexpress #annamaywong #louiseclosserhale #1932 #30s #1930s #classic #classics #classicmovies #classicmovie #classichollywood #old #oldies #oldiesbutgoodies #oldhollywood #oldmovies #retro #retromovies #retrohollywood #hollywoodicon

Anna May Wong is considered the first Chinese-American movie star in Hollywood. She was born January 3, 1905, in Californa, USA. “She became well-known among the moviemakers, who dubbed her “C.C.C.” for “Curious Chinese Child.”” After her first uncredited part in a movie (”The Red Lantern”), it took her two years before she received an on-screen credit. It was “The Toll of the Sea" that made Wong known in Hollywood. Because she was relegated mostly to the background and tokenized in Hollywood movies, in 1928 Wong left for Europe where she went on to become an international icon. Eventually, she returned to the United States and performed on a Broadway show “On the Spot” before moving on to other roles. She refused to play roles that cast her in a stereotypical light, though she still continued to get passed over because she looked “too Chinese” to play a Chinese woman. Once again she left the United States. She used her fame to combat Hollywood’s racism. Ultimately her work helped pave the way for other people of color in Hollywood. Wong died on February 2, 1961, in California, USA.
