Chapter Summary

This bibliography of the book Shanghai Filmmaking: Crossing Borders, Connecting to the Globe, 1922-1938 presents a list of reference books and articles. The book outlines the industrial environment of early Shanghai filmmaking. It focuses on three aspects of the films: characteristics of the medium, narrative mode(s), and meanings. The book examines the melodramatic narrative mode adopted by most Mingxing films. A comparison of Orphan and Way Down East, both box-office hits in Chinese film markets, demonstrates the connections in terms of film narrative, public appetite, and popular psychology between China and the outside world.

Keywords: China; Chinese film markets; Orphan; Shanghai filmmaking
