Perpetually Cool: Anna May Wong

Anna May Wong was the first famous Chinese-American actress in Hollywood. She starred in Shanghai Express (1932), opposite Marlene Dietrich. My Uncle (by marriage) authored a book about Anna May Wong, called Perpetually Cool: The Many Lives of Anna May Wong (1905–1961) – Anthony B. Chan.  Hollywood actress Lucy Liu has bought the film rights to the book.

These are a few pictures of AMW from the book. I don’t know who the photographers are.
