Dazu analysiert sie exemplarisch eine Spannbreite von Filmen, in denen die Chinatown als Haupthandlungsort oder als Nebenschauplatz eingesetzt wird, wie damaged Blossoms (D.W. Griffith, 1919), the woman from Shanghai (Orson Welles, 1947), as soon as Upon a Time in the USA (Sergio Leone, 1984) und yr of the Dragon (Michael Cimino, 1985). Das Raummotiv-Konzept von Hans J.
