She was a popular socialite, and wrote a humorous autobiography ''First Person Plural'' (New York, 1958). Patron of the arts An extremely wealthy financier, Kahn supported artists such as Hart Crane, George Gershwin and Arturo Toscanini.

During this period, the Hong Kong industry was one of the few in the world that thrived in the face of the increasing global dominance of Hollywood. Indeed, it came to exert a comparable dominance in its own region of the world. The regional audience had always been vital, but now more than ever Hong Kong product filled theaters and video shelves in places like Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and South Korea. Taiwan became at least as important a market to Hong Kong film as the local one; in the early 1990s the once-robust Taiwanese film industry (Cinema of Taiwan) came close to extinction under the onslaught of Hong Kong imports (Bordwell, 2000). They even found a lesser foothold in Japan, with its own highly developed and better-funded cinema (Cinema of Japan) and strong taste for American movies; Jackie Chan in particular became popular there. frame right Peninsula Lake, near Huntsville in Muskoka (Image:penlakesm.jpg) Muskoka has just over 50,000 permanent residents, but an additional 100,000 seasonal property owners spend their summers in the region every year, making this a major summer colony.
