    Lecture Five Chinese Films

    ?Motion pictures were introduced to China in 1896 . It was not until November 1905 that the Chinese shot their first film, The Battle of Dingjunshan. It was adapted from a Peking Opera of the same title by the Beijing

    Fengtai Photo Studio and Tan Xinpei, a renowned performer of Peking Opera. It was

    only a collection of scenes from Beijing opera based on the classical novel The

    Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

    The shooting of the film marked the official birth of Chinese cinema.

    ?The Chinese film industry didn't begin until 1913 when Zheng Zhengqiu and Zhang

    Shichuan shot the first Chinese movie The Difficult Couple (1913). During the 1920s film technicians from the United States trained Chinese technicians in Shanghai, an

    early filmmaking center, and American influence continued to be felt there for the next

    two decades. China's first "talkie" was The Songstress, Red Peony (1931) played by the then "film queen" Butterfly Hu (Hu Die in Chinese) and produced by the Star Studio,
