Anna May Wong (1905-1961):the 1st Chinese American movie star.Born in LA,she began acting in films at an early age.She appeared the first time in a Nazimova's film as an extra carrying a lantern.At the age of 17 she played her first leading role (a Technicolor movie before the coming of sound)Wong became a fashion icon,and by 1924 had achieved international stardom.In 1935 she was disappointed, when MGM refused to consider her for the leading role in its film version of a Pearl S. Buck's novel.Hollywood proved reluctant to create starring roles for Wong; her ethnicity prevented U.S. filmmakers from seeing her as a leading lady.She said:"Pictures are fine, and I'm getting along all right,but it's not so bad to have the laundry back of you,so you can wait and take good parts and be independent when you're climbing.” It soon became evident that Wong's career would continue to be limited by American anti-miscegenation laws,which prevented her from sharing an on-screen kiss with any European-American actor.
