Shaw Brothers Studio - Wikipedia

Prior to their involvement in the #filmmaking business, the Shaw brothers were interested in opera and owned a theatre in #Shanghai, and their father also owned a cinema. One of the plays in their theatre, The Man from Shensi, was very popular. The #ShawBrothers then bought their first camera, and Runje Shaw made this play into a silent film which turned out to be a success. Runje Shaw and his brothers Runde and Runme formed a film production company in 1924 in Shanghai called the Tianyi Film Company (also known as Unique). The company's earliest films, New Leaf and Heroine Li Feifei, were shown in Shanghai in 1925
