here for an earlier post about one of her photobooks.
Chan Wing-Chi. I quickly searched for this issue and just as quickly found it on eBay. Dirt cheap. Yoink! This issue looks to have a cool article by Greenstreet Kan that covers mahjong, dice, chess, board games, card games, dominoes, and fortune telling. Odd, yet, so darn cool.
Sherming Yiu Lok-Yi, a non CAT III actress who has a fully clothed fotofolio and interview in the mag. Also, there is an interview with Danny Lee accompanied by a few photos of him puffing on a pipe. AWESOME!!! There's also a bonus interview with the superb actress, Ruby Wong Cheuk-Ling.
Teresa Carpio. And, upon a very...very....quick thumb through, Ms. Carpio is quite without a t-shirt. This issue is boss! Included is an interview with Sammo Hung (I should have scanned one of the pics that's included in the interview. He's wearing a wife-beater, bandana around his forehead, and aviators. Ha!), a Jay Leno style pictorial and another interview with Dolph Lundgren.
Grace Lam Nga-Si. Also in this issue, an interview with Bill Tung Biu.
Miho Nomoto. Probably best remembered, by me anyway, as Jade Leung's unfortunate friend in THE PEEPING TOM (1997).
Vivian Hsu showed more than her fair share of goosebumps on film. And I was pleasantly surprised to find this book at a newsstand in TST. I didn't have enough money on me for the book so I ran to a money exchange joint around the corner (and got a little ripped off as I had seen the exchange rate a lot better elsewhere) for more money. Money well exchanged and spent.
Shu Qi has a few skeletons in her closet. Just do a Google image search for her unclothed, and....viola! More pink than a bottle of Pepto Bismol! Above is the photo book for SEX AND ZEN II. A great, great sequel directed by Cash Chin and also starring Loletta Lee. She's on the cover. And thankfully inside.
Ms. Julie Lee Wa-Yuet? A conundrum of a HK skinema starlet, Julie made the leap from CAT III to CAT IV with not much aplomb but with western fan notoriety. I also found this photo essay in Chungking Mansions! You can further check her out here. Yipes!
Now, as almost as soon as I have received these pictorials, I have banished them into plastic protective wrapping and into storage for gosh knows how many years and never to be seen again (well, maybe), does this make me an old pervert? A weirdo? Both? As I said earlier, think of me what you will. I'm probably having more fun than you continuing my HK cinema journey! And there should, hopefully, be more books and mags in the future. Oh, my poor wife.
