1940年2月10日《色戒》原型奇女特工蘋如 - 由張愛玲同名小說改編的電影《色戒》在第64屆威尼斯得最佳影片金獅獎,女主角王佳芝的原型, 蘋如, 也從史的埃中浮出來。位極富奇色彩的女特溪人,她是一位出身於國民黨高官家庭的上海有名美女,同又是一位中日混血的抗日女烈士。蘋如生於1918年,上海名媛,當年上海第一大畫“良友畫”曾將其作封面女郎。上海陷後,秘密加入中,利用其得天獨厚的條件,混跡於日當中,取情。後參與暗務頭子丁默村,而暴露身份,被捕,一口咬定情所困,雇兇人,成當年上海重大花之一。1940年2月,被秘密決於滬西中山路旁的一片荒地,中3年23。李安電影之後,鄭蘋如的家人曾經在美國開記者會,指責小說及電影扭曲了烈士鄭蘋如的形象. Zheng Pingru, a Kuomintang intelligence agent during World War II, was secretly executed in Shanghai on Feb 10, 1940, by the Japanese puppet government after her failed assassination of a high ranking puppet government official. Zheng served as the archetype of Lust, Caution, a book published in 1979 by famed Chinese author Eileen Chang, and Ang Lee's 2007 erotic spy thriller film that won the Venice Film Festival's top Golden Lion award. In the movie, the story was mostly set in Hong Kong in 1938 and in Shanghai in 1942, when it was occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army and ruled by the puppet government led by Wang Jingwei. It depicts a group of Chinese university students from the Lingnan University who plot to assassinate a high-ranking special agent and recruiter of the puppet government using an attractive young woman to lure him into a trap. Shortly after the film’s release, Zheng’s family staged a press release in Los Angeles, claiming that the movie was about real-life events that happened in World War II, and wrongfully portrayed Zheng as a promiscuous secret agent who seduced and eventually fell in love with the assassination target Ding Mocun. Taiwan's investigation bureau confirmed that Zheng Pingru failed to kill Ding because her gun jammed, rather than developing a romantic relationship with the assassin's target.  Director Ang Lee maintains that Eileen Chang wrote the original short story as fiction.

Chien-Shiung Wu (May 31, 1912 – February 16, 1997) was a Chinese American experimental physicist who made significant contributions in the field of nuclear physics. Wu was born in the town of Liuhe in Taicang, Jiangsu province, China, on May 31, 1912. Second of three children and the only daughter, Wu and her father were extremely close and he encouraged her interests passionately, creating an environment where she was surrounded by books, magazines, and newspapers. Wu studied at the National Central University (later renamed Nanjing University), first in mathematics, but later transferring to physics. In August 1936, she embarked for the United States on the SS President Hoover. Wu enrolled in the University of California, Berkeley, where she met her future husband, physicist Luke Chia-Liu Yuan, a grandson of Yuan Shikai, the first President of the Republic of China. Wu completed her Ph.D. in June 1940, and then embarked on an unprecedented career as a Chinese female physicist of her time. Wu worked on the Manhattan Project, where she helped develop the process for separating uranium metal into uranium-235 and uranium-238 isotopes by gaseous diffusion. She is best known for conducting the Wu experiment, which contradicted the hypothetical law of conservation of parity. This discovery resulted in her colleagues Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen-Ning Yang winning the 1957 Nobel Prize in physics, and also earned Wu the inaugural Wolf Prize in Physics in 1978. In 1975 Wu served as the first female president of the prestigious American Physical Society (APS). Her expertise in experimental physics evoked comparisons to Marie Curie. Her nicknames include "the First Lady of Physics", "the Chinese Madame Curie", and the "Queen of Nuclear Research". She passed away on February 16, 1997 in New York City at the age of 85 after suffering a stroke. She was survived by her husband and son. In accordance with her wishes, her ashes were buried in her hometown of Liuhe, in the courtyard of the Ming De School that her father had founded, and that she had attended as a young girl.
