Discusses initiative of the Chinese American Frank Lee to exhibit Shaw Brothers’ theatrical and musical Mandarin-language prestige productions to New York art cinema audiences in the mid-1960s, including a version of the classic Hua Mulan tale. Suggests that local critics’ dismissal of the feminine genre fostered Shaw’s US promotion of martial arts films instead.
