Xuan Jinglin is not famous for making movies. She just wants to save money to redeem herself and change her identity. Unexpectedly, her secret was discovered and her savings were confiscated by the brothel. After Zheng Zhengqiu knew about it, she was paid by the "Star" to redeem herself. She also wrote a play "a woman in Shanghai" about prostitutes' life, starring Xuan Jinglin. She was praised by the audience and became a movie star. When Xuan Jinglin got her personal freedom and her identity as a "movie star", she asked Prince Wang to put forward to her parents that they would get married.
Xuan Jinglin, born in 1907, joined the star film company in 1925 and starred in films such as "the last conscience", "a woman in Shanghai", "blind orphan" and "true and false gold". In 1931, he starred in the sound film "spring in the singing field" for Tianyi film company. Together with Zhang Zhiyun, Yang Naimei and Wang Hanlun, she was named the four female stars of Shanghai beach in 1926. Compared with the other three, she is well-known for her wide range of plays. She can play both Fox and tragic women. After liberation, he entered Shanghai Film Studio.
Xuan Jinglin's father is a newspaper vendor in Shanghai. She studies in the church run muertang. Although she doesn't pay tuition fees, she doesn't want to endure discrimination from rich classmates and leave school to learn Beijing opera. When her husband, mother and elder brother fell ill one after another, she had to sell herself to a brothel, and fell into a fire pit when she was a girl. After a few years of laughing career, she dreams of jumping out of the abyss and pinning her hopes on Wang liugongzi, the son of the sea gentry. Although the prince was infatuated with her, his father would never let his son marry a prostitute. By chance, Zheng Zhengqiu selects Xuan Jinglin to play the villain supporting role in "the last conscience". Finding that she has acting ability, he asks her to play several films one after another.
Xuan Jinglin is not famous for making movies. She just wants to save money to redeem herself and change her identity. Unexpectedly, her secret was discovered and her savings were confiscated by the brothel. After Zheng Zhengqiu knew about it, she was paid by the "Star" to redeem herself. She also wrote a play "a woman in Shanghai" about prostitutes' life, starring Xuan Jinglin. She was praised by the audience and became a movie star. When Xuan Jinglin got her personal freedom and her identity as a "movie star", she asked Prince Wang to put forward to her parents that they would get married. However, Wang's father still thought that she was from a humble family and was not allowed to enter the royal family after marriage. After marriage, Xuan Jinglin kept filming, but her husband was under all kinds of pressure from the family and society. Moreover, because of the rumors about Xuan Jinglin inside and outside the film circle, their husband and wife misunderstood each other and broke up. After years of continuous filming, Xuan Jinglin was no longer young, frail, and finally fell ill. Since then, people have to "old and worthless" as an excuse, no longer asked her to film. Since then, she has retired from the film industry and remarried with the reputation of movie stars in the past as her dowry. It's a pity that although the other party has a fortune, he is dissolute and has nothing to do with it.
It was not until liberation that she joined the Shanghai film company. After the founding of the people's Republic of China, Xuan Jinglin, who had been in shadow for ten years, made films such as "home", "Changhong uprising", "March 8th riverside" and "family problems" in Shanghai Film Studio. Compared with other female artists of her time, she has the longest career and the longest life span.
The star company is preparing a new play "the last conscience". There are candidates for several roles, but there is still a lack of supporting actress. Zhang Shichuan happened to see a beautiful woman in the scenery pictorial. She is not as green as her homely daughter. She seems to have some maturity between her eyebrows. Her expression and temperament are quite in line with her missing role. Actor Wang Jiting happens to know her and introduces her to star company. Deep myopia Zheng Zhengqiu looks at Miss Jinling and sees that she is beautiful, but her mouth is a little shriveled. After discussion, the three agreed and asked if Miss Jinling was willing to sign the contract. She looks embarrassed. Wang Jiting knows that she has a secret, which makes Zhang Shichuan and others more suspicious.
It was her identity that she was worried about.
Xiao Jinling's father died early, and her mother supported the elder and younger children alone, which made her life difficult. Because her uncle was in charge of the accounts in the ticket room of the "laughing stage", Xiao Jinling often followed her uncle to the "laughing stage" to watch the "new drama". Gradually, she became fascinated and learned to sing Beijing opera to her neighbors. Her mother hoped that she would study hard and save money, so that she could go to a private school. Later, she was sent to a free church school. However, due to poverty and being bullied, xiaojinling finally dropped out of school.
Miss Jin Ling came out of the star company and went back to the place where she was very reluctant to go, but she couldn't get away from it. When she was 15 years old, her mother died and her brother fell ill. She was reduced to a laughing house.
On the one hand, she was worried that if her identity was detected by the star company, she might be rejected; on the other hand, if the news spread to huile, it would surely come to nothing. But she really didn't want to miss this opportunity. How she hoped to earn enough money to get out of the mire as soon as possible through filming. Moreover, only when she got rid of the name of fireworks completely, could she marry Wang Liugong, who was in love with each other.
At this time, it's very fashionable for actresses to take the place of male actors. Actresses like Wang Hanlun, Yang Naimei and Yin Mingzhu all have good backgrounds, have received secondary education or above, and there are few cases of prostitutes taking part in films. In order to cover up her identity, Jinling wants to change her name. Zheng Zhengqiu thinks of the homophonic "Jinglin" for her. Her family name was Tian. In memory of a good sister surnamed Xuan, she changed her name to Xuan and was called Xuan Jinglin from then on.
Jump out of the fire
Zheng Zhengqiu asked Xuan Jinglin if she could play the arrogant and frivolous role in the last conscience. She thought about it and said, how could she not play such a role when she saw so many women? She imitated the usual shrewdness and learned vividly. Later, she made a scene of flirting, which was performed by Xuan Jinglin and became more familiar. Several plays a day, her performance is very well received by everyone. The star company asked Xuan Jinglin to shoot the next film "children" and act as the leading role. This time, she signed a contract with the star company, stating that the reward was 500 yuan. In Zheng Zhengqiu's children, Xuan Jinglin plays a loving and patient widowed mother, and Zheng Xiaoqiu, Zheng Zhengqiu's son, plays the abducted son. Xuan Jinglin proves that she can play both positive and negative roles well.
Seeing Xuan Jinglin's acting talent and interest in movies, a story about the fate of prostitutes that Zheng Zhengqiu had been brewing for a long time emerged. If Xuan Jinglin is willing to play, he thinks it is the most suitable candidate. Although she did not specify her identity, everyone had their own opinions. But Xuan Jinglin suddenly no longer appears. Wang Jiting finally finds her to the star company. She sadly tells the truth. The old bustard found that all the rewards she got were copied away, and she is not allowed to make another film. She can't raise 2000 yuan for ransom, and her plan for ransom is hopeless!
Zhang Shichuan and Zheng Zhengqiu are very angry when they hear that. At present, they decide to let the star company pay for her redemption. Xuan Jinglin, who is still sad, is overjoyed. She did not expect that someone would reach out and pull herself out of the fire pit!
Now that Xuan Jinglin can concentrate on filming for the star company, Zheng Zhengqiu hopes that the story of "a woman in Shanghai" can be fuller. He asks Xuan Jinglin carefully and integrates some details into the film. It turns out that the procuress found out what she got from filming because she helped a little girl who had been sold to huile. Seeing that her tragic life was very similar to her own, Xuan Jinglin couldn't bear for her to go her own way, so she paid to help the girl escape. As a result, she was found and all her savings were seized. Zheng Zhengqiu wrote this plot into a woman in Shanghai.
Dreams come and go
Xuan Jinglin is determined to redeem herself. Another important purpose is to have a good marriage with Wang liugongzi, the "sweetheart". Wang Liuzi was born in a famous family. He was a young and simple comprador. Once, Xuan Jinglin went on a business trip. They met each other. Although their identities were quite different, they liked each other. They could not bear to separate. But the family of Wang Liuzi decided not to marry such a woman. Xuan Jinglin made up her mind to find a way to redeem herself and marry to the Wang family.
Because of the heroic deeds of the star company, Prince Wang can summon up the courage to mention the marriage to his family. The Wang family may have heard about Xuan Jinglin's background and refuse to agree. When Zheng Zhengqiu heard about it, he decided to take charge of it. He visited the Wang family alone to guarantee Xuan Jinglin's talent, appearance and character. He said he wanted to be a matchmaker. With Zheng Zhengqiu's reputation and status, Mr. Wang, who is also a social celebrity, is not easy to refute his face. With Zheng Zhengqiu's insistence and mediation, and Zheng Zhengqiu's official appearance to propose marriage, the Wang family finally relented, but they were not allowed to enter the door of the Wang family without marriage and parents.
After the marriage, Xuan Jinglin still filmed in the star company, and insisted on gradually repaying the company's 2000 yuan redemption fee with remuneration. She plays a despicable villain in the poor girl, but as a result, good people think of her origin, and rumors abound. Although Xuan Jinglin left huileli, the shadow of that period of life seemed to be hard to shake away for a long time. Under the constant intrusion of rumors, the couple began to have a quarrel, and finally broke up.
Pre liberation evaluation
In the era of silent films, Xuan Jinglin worked hard and lived a serious life. She was respected by her colleagues in the star company. She was one of the few red card actresses in the early film world. Although she is less than 30 years old, through the director's discovery, the image of the old woman played by Xuan Jinglin in many films, such as "little grandma's fan" and "Sister Flowers", has become a feature, and is known as "the first old woman in Chinese films". In 1931, Tianyi company made the sound film "spring in the singing field", in which Xuan Jinglin acted as a singer who could sing Beijing opera. After a long time of hard work, she became ill and fell ill. nineteen
