The word ying, which means ‘shadow’, in this magazine’s Chinese name refers to ‘dianying’, or films, while its wu (‘dance’) refers to dance halls. As its English name suggests, its contents were largely divided between movies and movie stars, mostly from Guangzhou and Hong Kong, and dances halls, including those such as Balasha, Kaixuan, Zhonghua, Bailemen and Jindian of Hong Kong, and also those found in Shanghai, Chengdu and Singapore. The development and popularity of Hong Kong’s dance halls are well recorded in this magazine, which also offers a broader indication of the prosperity of Hong Kong’s post-war entertainment industry.
