|Nhat Truong AKA Tran Thien Thanh|
In the early 1970s, Nhat Truong starred and directed two motion pictures in South Vietnam, Tren Dinh Mua Dong (1972) and Mong Thuong (1974). Thanh Lan, on both films, costarred as his leading lady. Nhat Truong also had founded his own record label and produced many of his own successful albums recorded in Saigon prior to 1975, as well as for many other famous recording artists of South Vietnam. As a songwriter, his most famous compositions included Chuyen Hen Ho, Gap Nhau Lam Ngo, Nguoi O Lai Charlie, Khi Nguoi Yeu Toi Khoc, Chieu Tren Pha Tam Giang, Tu Do Em Buon, Tinh Dau Tinh Cuoi, Anh Ve Voi Em, Khong Bao Gio Ngan Cach, Hoa Trinh Nu and Chiec Ao Ba Ba. After the Fall of Saigon in 1975, Nhat Truong was among the artists who had been banned from public performances under the new communist regime. In 1984, he was finally given permission to resume his career as a music performer, but chose to remain inactive due to his anti-communist beliefs.
