Between Xiao Juan and Xiao Fang stands nearly twenty years of Amoy-dialect film history. A melodrama and an action film, Lü Mengzheng Wins the Bride’s Embroidered Ball (1957) and The Story of Red Lotus Temple (Chapter III) (1957) are rare early opera Amoy-dialect films that exhibit young Ivy Ling Po’s (then called “Xiao Juan”) versatile performance in the dialect before her big break in Mandarin cinema. In Romance at Lung Shan Temple (1962), “Queen of Amoy-dialect Cinema” Zhuang Xuefang paradoxically plays an immigrant (waishengren) Xiao Fang, who speaks only Mandarin, adeptly taking on a fresh new screen persona but at the same time symbolizing the fall of Amoy-dialect cinema.
