Hong Kong Filmography Volume III (1950-1952) Book Cover


As a legatee of the traditions of the 1940s, Hong Kong cinema in the 1950s continued to produce fantasy martial arts pictures, melodramas and comedies. These genres remained the mainstays of the industry. Not a few were adapted from so-called 'airwave novels'. Among the most distinguished productions of the period were Dawn Must Come (aka Tears of the Pearl River), Kaleidoscope, The Dividing Wall, and Modern Red Chamber Dream.

The 761-page Hong Kong Filmography Vol III (1950-1952) records the details of over 580 films from 1950 to 1952. Bilingual in Chinese and English. Published in 2000. Hardcover. Priced at HK$223. Currently out of stock. (Edited by Winnie Fu)
