Biography
 
  Zhou joined a troupe of performers at the age of 12. Once voted one of The Ten Best Singers in Shanghai, she was also known to be the Golden Voice of her time. Zhou started to act in movies from 1935 onwards. The 1937 film Street Angel gave her instant fame and the songs she sang in the film Wandering Singing Girl and Song of the Four Season became extremely popular. That is why every one of the films she made subsequently was accompanied by theme songs. In her filming career she took part in over 40 movies including Three Smiles, Romance of the West Chamber, Remembering the South of Yangtze River and Night Lodging which were all made in Shanghai. Besides she made a number of films in Hong Kong like An All-consuming Love, Waste Not Our Youth, Song of a Songstress, Orioles Banished from the Flowers and Sorrow of the Forbidden City.
