now online, my @FilmComment essay on the life and work merle oberon, the first and only performer of known asian heritage to get an oscar nomination for best actress (many thanks to my editors @devikagirgayi and clinton krute)
@senatormayukh@FilmComment@devikagirgayi Very fine article. Was enchanted by her, seeing Wuthering Heights as a teen. Beauty and fierceness. Also great in the Technicolor Divorce of Lady X. Always kept a fondness for Merle Oberon, catching her on TCM is always a nice surprise.
