Abstract or Introduction

Asian American actress Anna May Wong (1905- 1961) was the most famous actress among all Chinese American actresses during the first half of the twentieth century. Her career spanned four decades and during that time she played all the Asian stereotypes from Dragon Lady and lotus blossom to seductress. Her status as a female of Asian ancestry living in America complicted her precedings in getting out of stereotypical parts she was offered. So how and why could Anna May Wong then raise to stardom in a time when Orientals were faced with racism, but in spite of that, is not sufficiently remembered nowadays?
