A lengthy retrospective account of the hard year Brigitte Lin had in 1979
(Corrections and clarifications are welcome)
Highlights of the article, lowlights include newcomer Sibelle Hu subtly attacking her in the press. After her debut in Your Smiling Face, 20 year-old Hu an outstanding university student in political science was compared to Brigitte Lin. Said Hu, described as confident and smug, we have similarities but I am Sibelle Hu, you underestimate me. Later that year, Joan Lin won best actress over Brigitte and Sibelle Hu beat her out for the best newcomer award. In Singapore where the award ceremony was held, Brigitte Lin was missing from a banquet held for the Taiwan delegation. When someone observed that Brigitte was seen returning to her hotel room a search was begun. She was found unconscious in her hotel room. Chin Han called for an ambulance and accompanied her to the nearby hospital. (Chin Han was Brigitte’s rumored married lover at this time.) After getting out of danger, Brigitte attended a scheduled benefit performance against medical recommendation. Her absence was feared to cause an media uproar. Various following news report said that her illness was due to nervous melancholy, and weariness and overwork. But some analysts felt that it was a suicide attempt with sleeping pills, not only because of not winning awards or strife with Sibelle Hu but due to her love for Chin Han and his unwillingness to divorce for her.
