Summary
 

Gillian Chung's scenes were deleted prior to the film's release. Only shots of her back, possibly, remain. <p> Sun Honglei stated that actually his most satisfying scene was cut. The scene was the young Mei Lanfang's wedding. In it, his character You Yubai's mother died of anger when You Yubai resigned his official post. That day also happened to be Mei Lanfang's wedding. He went to congratulate the Mei family but broke down as soon as he saw Mei Lanfang. Yet after crying he still wished the new couple well with a smile. (This scene was excised as part of the Gillian Chung edit since she was in this scene.)
