  • Fig. 11. Two pages from the Li Huinaing lianhuanhua, using stills from the 1981 film. On the top, Hu Zhifeng’s entrance as Li Huiniang; on the bottom, the slain Li Huiniang’s head in a box. In the next frame, the head has disappeared—signaling Li Huiniang’s “rebirth” as a ghost (Sha Jie, ed. Li Huiniang (Beijing: Zhongguo dianying chubanshe, 1982).
