“I could easily get you fixed up, in a jiffy, but I take no responsibility for your relations.” 1930 Shanghai although prosperous was also a menagerie of characters and fraught with gangs and spies. In this bizarre range of international and internal power things were not as they seemed. You can hear the voice of the famous Richard Scorge as he flaunts his way down a dark Shanghai alley, “all right, all right, I'll arrange a meeting for you, but this is a one time thing, I don't want you getting' any ideas, know what I mean? Just so you know this...shall we say prospect is...not unfamiliar with sordid deeds, catch my drift. And uh you may want to tell little Johnny to stay home this time around. My boss is a bit degenerate and bit bourgeois. See yous around dusk, eh?” Scorge a master at deception as he was a gang member and a Soviet spy. He not only spun his own false tale but lived with a duplicity that embodied the intrigue and mystery of seedy Shanghai. [Lelia Pollett]
