A hilarious time capsule of old Hong Kong, The House of 72 Tenants broke even Bruce Lee's box office records upon its release in 1973. Join 72 remarkable comic actors (including the lovable Lydia Shum and sparkling Hu Chin) playing a fascinating and fun cross-section of Hong Kong society -- all crammed into a single tenement. The action and humor never stop as all their problems and predicaments find a happy ending by the time this colorful entertainment reaches its memorable finale. (SB-IVL)
