The Kingdom and the Beauty
“In an industry not noted for career longevity, movie mogul Sir Run Run Shaw … has set a gold standard for durability. Truly the last of the titans, Shaw was born when cinema was in its infancy. His own life and career grew alongside movies’ evolution from the black-and-white silents to today’s global media industry. …Most of the world will always remember him for the films that entertained mass audiences and influenced important filmmakers throughout the 20th century.” — Roger Garcia
Set in Imperial China, THE KINGDOM AND THE BEAUTY is a gorgeous musical-drama directed by Li Han-hsiang (THE LAST TEMPEST,1976). In this epic tale of a Chinese emperor in love with a country maiden, we are treated to dazzling musical numbers, top-notch acting and cinematography.
