Arbor Day Rule 5: Anna May Wong


I forgot it was Arbor Day, till I noted Mr. Hoge was going to an Arbor Day celebration honoring Mrs. Hoge. I looked up celebrities planting trees and found this picture of the lovely Anna May Wong planting a willow tree. Anna May's Chinese name was Wong Lew Song, translates literally as "Frosted Yellow Willows"
















Rotten Tomatoes: Anna May Wong



Rule 5 and FMJRA

  1. Anna May Wong personal relationships typically were with older Caucasian men, but California law forbid marriage between Asians and Caucasians until 1948. One of her white lovers offered to marry her in Mexico, but the couple's intentions became known and he backed off when his Hollywood career was jeopardized. Wong mused about marrying a Chinese man at times, but the Chinese culture held actresses to be on a par with prostitutes

    1. The culture here of course holds politicians on par with prostitutes.

      Okay, I shouldn't say that...it's unfair to prostitutes.
