Mamo Clarke

  1. Tilly Losch, The Good Earth, 1936.      The Hawaii-born Clark, who debuted as Mamiti in the first Mutiny on the Bounty in 1934,  was seen with Asian actresses Sidney Fox and  Lotus Lui for Lotus – in the first MGM film to credit the productipon genius Irving Thalberg – after his shock death at 37. His boss, LB Mayer, had told him: “The public won’t buy pictures about American farmers, and you want to give them Chinese farmers?” Thalberg, as usual, was right – three Oscars from six nominations!
