          Shaw Brothers (Shaw Bros.)

          The seeds of this legendary Chinese film empire (Shaw Brothers Studio) were sown in Shanghai in the 1920�s by six enterprising brothers. Taking root in then British Hong Kong in 1958 with the construction of the largest privately-owned film studio in the world at the time, the Shaw Brothers produced about one thousand films (many of which are now Chinese cinema classics) over the next four decades, amassing the largest Chinese film library ever. The library spans all genres of Chinese cinema, from renowned martial arts films to historical adventures; from horror fantasies to slapstick romantic comedies; from action thrillers to the enchanting musicals and unforgettable period dramas. A unique aspect of the Shaw Brothers film library is that most titles have never been released on video or television.

          Recognizing from very early on the importance of vertical integration, Shaw Brothers acquired and developed cinemas throughout Southeast Asia, Japan, Australia, North America, Hawaii and Canada, establishing itself as by far the most dominant film production, distribution and exhibition group in the entire region. In the 1970�s, the size of the theatre group exceeded 200 screens (with 600 more listed as having distribution deals), boasting several grand 1000-seat plus flagship houses in Hong Kong. The company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 1971. In 1974, for his professional achievement and generous philanthropic worldwide contributions over several decades, patriarch Run Run Shaw was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. In addition to its own output, Shaw Brothers released international films, and invested in a number of co-productions, most notably the classic Ridley Scott film, Bladerunner, starring Harrison Ford, in 1982.

          In 1973, Sir Run Run launched TVB, Hong Kong�s first wireless commercial television station. By the 80�s, Hong Kong real estate values were soaring to the stratosphere, and many of the large Shaw cinemas were gradually converted into other commercial uses. Sir Run Run grew TVB into one of the top 5 television producers in the world, based on output, and the world�s largest Chinese-language content provider. In order to focus on its burgeoning television activities, Shaw Brothers started to pull back on feature film production in the mid 1980�s. In recent years, the entire Shaw Brothers film library is undergoing a state-of-the-art digital restoration process which will result in new masters of exceptional quality.
