Although the Shaw era is long gone, no other movie making establishment has ever been able to make it's mark the way The Shaw Brothers has and for as long. Run Run Shaw was already fifty years old when he establish his own studio in 1957 which would quickly become the more glamorous of all east asia and dominate Hong-Kong Kong cinema scene for nearly a quarter of a century. RIP Run Run Shaw (1907-2014)
