I'm not sure that I can do adequate justice to how important and influential the career of Sir Run Run Shaw has been to me and my interests in film, books, comics and more. Rather, I will link to several other posts I have seen today marking the passing of this film legend.
Some of my favorite Shaw Brothers films:
- Eight Diagram Pole Fighter, starring Gordon Liu
- Heroes of the East, directed by fight choreographer Lau Kar-Leung
- The One-Armed Swordsman, directed by Chang Cheh and starring Wang Yu
- Super Inframan, aka Infra-Man
- The Five Deadly Venoms
- 36th Chamber of Shaolin
- Fist of the White Lotus, directed by and starring Lo Lieh as White Eyebrow Monk Pai Mei.
