Run Run Shaw dead at age 106

Run Run Shaw, one of Hong Kong’s Shaw Brothers, has died at age 106.

The Shaw Brothers were major moguls in Hong Kong movies and TV, founding their film production company in 1924 and making some of the first talkies in Chinese in the 30s. In the west, of course, the Shaw Brothers are best known for the countless martial arts movies that poured out of their studios and into the grindhouses during the 60s and 70s.

Trivia note - Run Run Shaw was of the producers of Blade Runner.

And he helped John Woo, too! Truly he had a great run (ha). RIP
