CF:Acclaimed Actor Chen Qiang Dies at 94
[The article doesn't mention it but he is the father of Chen Peisi. And I highly recommend "Father and Son's Car" and "The Silly Manager", as well as "Make Ten Million", all of which feature the pair in wry comedies before the boomtimes in China surfaced.]

Yeah, that EDC is definitely creepy. And what? He's only noticed Tang Wei now? Is he running out of starlets to stalk?

On a brighter note, I'll try and check out those Chen Qiang films you mentioned. I was intrigued by that photo of Magician's Adventure. I looked it up on the Web and saw it cited as China's first 3-D movie. Interesting. I'm always surprised films from that era that don't fit the stereotype of the propaganda film.

Yeah, that photo caught my eye too. Added it to HKMDB. :D Looks like it's listed as available on vcd (yesasia).

That's just lazy painting with broad strokes.
