This is scholarship at its best. Going to previously unexamined
sources and extending the range of cities covered beyond Shanghai,
this volume is likely to be a new watershed in studies of early
Chinese-language cinema.' -Chris Berry, King's College, London
'Highly original and groundbreaking archival research conducted by top scholars in the field. These new discoveries and angles reconfigure the conceptual framework within which Chinese cinema is understood. In short, we need this book urgently!' -Victor Fan, King's College, London
