|1970 San Francisco Stage
Connie came to San Francisco in 1970 and performed at the Grand
Palace Theater from July 8th to 14th. A teenager at the time, Cindy
Law went to Connie’s show seven nights in a row and took the color photographs
you see below. The black-and-white photographs were taken by her father’s
friend, who was a photographer for one of the local Chinese newspaper.
According to Cindy, the entire Chinese-American community, both young
and old, welcomed Connie with open arms and hearts and invited her
to the Autumn Moon Festival and association picnics. After the show was
over, Connie stayed for awhile in a hotel in Chinatown and enrolled at
John Adams Adult High School before returning to Hong Kong to make her
final film. Please enjoy these rare and precious photos generously provided
by Cindy, who has written captions for each one.
