Cherie Chung to Return?

News today, by way of the Hong Kong Movie Database Daily News site, that quite possibly the most beautiful woman in the world (I say that a lot, don't I?) may be returning to the screen to pay the bills!

I can't say that I ever thought Cherie Chung was a great actress -- she was quite good in Peking Opera Blues, of course -- but she was a star and her career spanned the end of the Shaw Brothers era and continued through some of the best times that Hong Kong cinema ever enjoyed (Peking Opera Blues).

She has maintained her natural beauty in an era of manufactured and vapid pop starlets; for any lack of dramatic acting ability, Cherie always gave us a charming screen presence that was never quite as simplistic as what Charlene Choi sometimes brings to the screen.

I think I need to go to the resort in that picture -- I need a vacation, after all!
