 Center Stage 阮玲玉 (DVD)

This is the true story of Yuan Ling-yu, the first movie star of the 1930's. Hailing from an obscure background, she became the prima donna of the Chinese screen. Students worshipped her as a cult symbol. Men looked at her with dreamy eyes and women looked at her sideways and full of hate.
For nine years since her movie at 16, Yuan Ling-yu managed to star in 29 movies. Her roles were usually pathetic ones : girl student, rustic maid, factory hand, prostitute, socialite and authoress. And her endings were invariably tragic : incarceration in a prison, mental breakdown, forced marriages, starvation, illness and even suicide.
