Summary
  In 1955, Tang made his second comedy feature Where There Are No Women (Mei You Nu Ren De Di Fang). The black and white film tells the story of seven well-educated bachelors who share an idyllic country residence, enjoying a “female-free” lifestyle. When one of them rescues a young lady at the beach and brings her home, all the men fall victim to her beauty and charm. Fierce competition for her affection ensues, their once male-only pad is suddenly dominated by an attractive woman out of nowhere. In the era’s political climate, Tang had to end the film with upbeat moral values and the colorful characters commit themselves to serving society. Nonetheless, the surprisingly enjoyable Where There Are No Women, partially funded by private investments, was a significant crossover between a policy-film and a commercially oriented independent feature. The lead actor of Where There Are No Women was none other than Lee Hsing/Li Xing (b. 1930), who went on to become one of Taiwan’s most influential filmmakers. Having appeared in Where There Is No Women and several other films directed by Tang Shao-hua, Lee developed an interest in film production and became an assistant director for Tang in 1957
