Long Story Short, Ed Sullivan, Flower Drum Song

Larry and Trudie Long

Anna May Wong with Banjo

One of my favorite things in rl :: top 100 ::
number 74 :: Asian North American performance artists, Chinese and Japanese :: Larry and Trudie Long, story by Jodi Long
:: Long Story Short - Director Christine Choy - the film is very well edited, the Ed Sullivan show displays the elegant singer dancer Nightclub act from the 50s Larry and Trudie Long; charming - Asians have not been represented well. You might have super talent and if the connecting link is not there, or blocked or intentionally compromised, what can the performer do? All structures are only as strong as the weakest link. The rhythm is fast paced and flows quickly - I saw how Jodi Leung transforms herself into an Asian woman. Hard times. There was only Flower Drum Song - tap dancing, singing, so much talent and so few echos all around. This reminds me of a text on Anna May Wong - the loneliness of Anna May Wong. Frosted Willow
