Anita Mui

  1. Joey Wang, Ching se  (US: Green Snake),  Hong Kong, 1993.      The marvellous love-snake story  (don’t ask!) was planned to be headlined by two Chinese superstars Gong Li and Anita Mui.  They were churned into Wang and Maggie Cheung. “Sounds like roles for Marlene Dietrich and  Bette Davis,” said my Paris  spy Nicolas Rioult, “were played by Kay Francis and Irene Dunne.  More human but less glamour.”
