Anna May Wong is another Hollywood trailblazer with talent and good looks to spare. The Los Angeles-born beauty is known for her role in Shanghai Express with Marlene Dietrich but has over sixty television and movie roles and appearances to her credit. Though Anna May struggled to win film roles, with Hollywood preferring to cast white actors in "yellow face", she worked until her death in 1961.
Not too bad for the lithe and gorgeous daughter of a laundryman. Rawr.
