Chinese Gamine. The Chinese Gamine was created by the Chinese creator Chiu Shu-sun and appeared in the film Sha Zhen Tan (1936).

The Chinese Gamine is a homeless teenage girl who is helped by two bumbling detectives after they catch her stealing some food. They take her in, and she helps them with various matters, as they are too incompetent even to cook dinner for themselves. They both discover some counterfeit money, but the gang of counterfeiters is too dangerous for them, so the Gamine pretends to be a Femme Fatale, infiltrates the gang, and arranges for their capture.
