Screen goddesses forever

Screen goddesses forever

They are the iconic stars of movie screens of the era from post-war to the explosion of TV and then videos.

These movie queens made such a great impact with their beauty and showmanship that they are still adored and remembered by fans.

Re-screening of old movies at events and festivals bring back fond memories of the stars and the roles that made them famous.

Like Lin Qingxia, who is remembered as a pretty lass in Taiwanese tear-jerkers, as well as her far stronger characters like The Invincible East and The White-Hair Demon Girl in her mature years.

When the subject of classic Chinese ghost stories crops up, one immediately recalls Joey Wong, who seemed more lovely than frightful as a lost spirit in her heydays.

While old movies might provoke laughter because of some tacky elements, one can't deny the evergreen quality of those displaying superior movie-making, the consummate acting skills of the actresses, or their captivating beauty.

Like the timeless elegance of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany.
