Jin and his lover Wang Renmei married at Lianhua's 1934 New Year's party. The battle with the censors continued. Director Sun Yu was determined to make an anti-Japanese film and still get it by the KMT censors. The Big Road is considered one of the top hundred Chinese films of all time. Jin's performance and Sun's direction gave both added stature to their reputation. ther pressures added to their already harried life. While the newly married couple was in Nanjing, they learned about the suicide of their acting colleague, Ruan Ling-yu. Political changes would soon make the lives of Jin and his colleagues even more perilous. The United States and European countries were impressed with the new wave of national unity. The Japanese however, read into the move as an obstruction to their “peaceful advance” into China. Militarists in Tokyo began to press for direct action.
