Wu Sin & friendship

years ago one dear friend gave me a memento of another. Ira Joel Haber giftd me with a lobbycard for "The Secrets of Wu Sin"   a forgotten poverty row quickie. it features Lois Wilson. I look at the card often but presumd the movie was lost.

not long ago another friend of many years James Robert Parish told me abt Hollywood's Best Movies which specializes in obscure titles. there I found Lois'1932 credit. hardly a major work nonetheless it's an appealing film. Lois gives another of her understatd performances in the role of a faild novelist whose suicide attempt is foild by a newspaper editor. he gives her a job & she's soon cracking a big story in Chinatown. the script is by Betty Burbridge who had a long writing career in Hollywood   specializing in westerns.

so watching the film brought together Lois & Ira Joel & Jim which made it not like seeing most movies. this one had a personal mark of friendship on it. & that made for a lovely evening.
