(F) Chan Poh Chu Cantonese Lady Black Cat
The image shows a Pathe/EMI vinyl featuring masked figures. Is she following the footpath of the Mysterians from Singapore or is she a lady singer who wishes to remain anonymous?
Perhaps the Mysterians were inspired by this singer or the movie and had decided to adopt the same outfit? Actually it's Connie Chan Poh Chu who was in a Cantonese movie called Lady Black Cat (1966). She was a pop Asian star in the 60s and 70s. Do people behind masks draw more attention or are they able to hide behind the glare of publicity?
