About This Book

A pioneering study of the Chinese cinemas in Shanghai and Hong Kong and the complex connections between them during the period of war, occupation, and civil war. Based on archival research and a collection of rare films, this is an important study of the regional networks, diasporic connections and border-crossing movement of goods, capital and people that drew Hongkong and Shanghai together in an intercity nexus that sustained the survival and even flourishing of popular cinema during that tumultuous period.
