She reminds me a bit of the actress from Shanghai Express. Marlene Dietrich's co-star...I'll have to look it up now...

anna may wong is wearing the exact same outfit here marlene dietrich wore in morocco, the black two-layer dress with the pearls. but they wouldn't have traded clothes, would they?
