Abstract

本文以偵探小說「女飛賊黃鶯」與「女黑俠木蘭花」系列及其影視改編為例談四○到六○年代間偵探小說從上海到香港發展的一些變化。「女飛賊黃鶯」為作家小平於四○年代在上海環球出版社出版的偵探雜誌《藍皮書》上連載,一九五〇年環球出版社南遷至香港後重新連載這一系列,十分暢銷,部分內容被翻拍成電影。黃鶯故事的流行促成了五六○年代一大批女俠小說及電影的產生,其中最為出名、自成體系的為倪匡六○年代以魏力為筆名創作出的「女黑俠木蘭花」系列。本文詳細敘述了這兩個系列的女俠小說產生及流通的來龍去脈,並通過這兩個例子試圖理清一些五六○年代香港通俗文學與四○年代的上海通俗文學之間的淵源,以及在不斷的影視改編中如何逐步本土化的過程。本文也對此類女俠故事為何會在五六○年代的香港流行原因作出分析,並試圖藉此探討五六○年代香港的市民心理及審美趣味。
This paper traces the production and reception history of female burglar Huang Ying stories from Shanghai of the 1940s to the postwar Hong Kong. It argues that the Female Burglar Huang Ying series maintains the tradition of Republican detective fiction while translating it to the new setting of postwar Hong Kong. The continuing localization of detective fiction in Hong Kong during the 1950s and 1960s, as demonstrated in the transition from the Huang Ying stories to the Mulan Hua series, echoes the Republican mode’s combination of a Westernized formula and local expressions. The departures of the Mulan Hua series from the Huang Ying stories prove detective fiction’s continuous flexibility to adapt to local concerns, political contexts and changes in generational tastes in postwar Hong Kong.
