Claudette Colbert liked the Chinese City

'Claudette Colbert, star of several well-known productions, is now in Shanghai on a short visit. She is very much impressed with Shanghai, especially with the Chinese city, customs, and life.'
The China Press, 'Visitor from Filmdom,' 17 June 1930.

It would be funny if by customs she (or more likely, her agent) actually meant the customs check.
