It was not until 1956 that he was poached by Shaw Brothers, a pro-Republic of China government, to join the right-wing camp. It has become common practice for entertainers in the Chinese world to change their political stance in order to make a living. Looking at them from today's perspective, we can condemn the speculation of entertainers, but from their perspective, we must show different political attitudes in the face of different rulers. Today's self must keep slapping the face of yesterday's self, That kind of psychological torment is probably not what we can imagine.
Of course, after facing different regimes such as Manchukuo, the Japanese Empire, the Nanjing National Government, the Chongqing National photo color correction services Government, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China, and the Hong Kong-British Government, their tactics to curry favor with the rulers became even more perfect. After all, performing arts is their job. To perform in front of audiences, they must perform in front of rulers. This is the collective sorrow of Chinese entertainers. Ding Shanxi, who is also a "grandson of a traitor" and a "patriotic director", must have learned from his predecessors such as Li Hanxiang how to survive under different rulers.
He wanted to consolidate his identity as a "patriotic director" in the Republic of China under the rule of Jiang Zhongzheng and his son, and try to make the Chinese people forget that he was the grandson of Ding Jingchen, a "cultural traitor". With the birth of two patriotic military education films, "Heroic Heroes" and "Eight Hundred Heroes". Of course, in these two films, the red national flag of the Republic of China must be displayed publicly. There is not much problem with the extension of Ding Shanxi, after all, the Wang Jingwei regime uses the same national flag.
