Shaw Yifu founded Shaw Brothers (HK), Ltd. in 1958 as the largest private studio in the world at that time called Shaw Brothers and nicknamed the Oriental Hollywood. It established a complete and mature film production marketing system which continuously enriched and perfected its practices to achieve great success. Li Hanxiang developed Huangmei Opera Film and other historical plays. King Hu created the New Ancient Swordsman Film. Chang Cheh created the first film over a million box office record. And Jia Tang and Lau Kar-leung developed their own respective styles of Kungfu in their movies. From such work, Shaw Brothers produced a lasting world-wide influence. Shaw Brothers had produced over 850 films until it stopped its blockbuster production in 1980s. From oral history and old movies, we track down the details of the past, mixed with romance and sorrow, prosperity and impermanence.
