This film proved to be very successful, and in , they established the Tianyi Studio Hong Kong in Kowloon to make Cantonese films.
In the s, Nanyang started to switch film production from Cantonese to Mandarin as Communist takeover in mainland China had cut off the supply of Mandarin films to overseas Chinese communities.
Some of Shaw Brothers' most notable films were made in this period, including The Magnificent Concubine , The Love Eterne , as well as One-Armed Swordsman , which broke the box office records and some spawned multiple sequels.
In the s, Shaw Brothers faced a strong challenge from a new studio, Golden Harvest , which had considerable success internationally with the martial arts film, Enter the Dragon starring Bruce Lee.
Shaw Brothers then also began to co-produce films with Western producers for the international market,  and invest in films such as Meteor and Blade Runner.
In , the company was reorganized under the umbrella of the Shaw Organization. Ramlee and Chang Cheh. King Hu was an early director who is best remembered for his film, Come Drink with Me , a martial arts film which differed from those of Chang Cheh in that it featured a capable female protagonist and revolved around romance in the martial arts world, rather than fast-paced action and the tales of brotherhood which Chang Cheh would later popularize.
Almost equally as famous was fight-choreographer -turned-director Lau Kar-leung, who would produce such highly regarded kung fu films as The 36th Chamber of Shaolin and The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter.
While P. Shaw Brothers was modeled after the classic Hollywood system, with hundreds of actors signed to exclusive contracts. While other studios rotated cast members, Shaw Brothers assigned certain groups of actors to work exclusively with certain directors.
Its huge success is in part due to the ingenious casting of Ivy Ling Po, who was a relatively unknown supporting actress, as the male lead.
In the story of Butterfly Lovers , the female lead, played by Betty Loh Ti, disguised herself as a male to attend college because social mingling between the sexes was forbidden.
The film resonated with its audience, and reportedly some members of the audience in Hong Kong and Taiwan repeatedly bought tickets and watched the feature in theaters over and over again in , with some having watched it over 20 times.
From the late s onward, production of dramatic features was reduced in favor of martial arts features. The group of actors from the release, Five Deadly Venoms , and the subsequent series of films—known by the name the Venom Mob —were among the most memorable.
Wei Pai, who played the Snake referred to as "Number Two" throughout the film Five Deadly Venoms , was also part of the Venom Mob , which numbered over 15 actors who appeared in almost all of the Venom movies.
In the first half of the s, two other stars were particularly renowned and favored by the "Million-Dollar Director" Chang Cheh in his movies: Ti Lung and David Chiang.
He is also accredited as a capable actor who reinforced his muscular glamor with strong characterization over his many films.
Chiang, on the other hand, was slight and wiry and often played the sarcastic antihero to Lung's standard archetype. In the middle of that decade, the duo was overshadowed by the rise of Alexander Fu Sheng , who had played supporting roles opposite them on many occasions.
Fu was killed in in a car accident, at age 28, ending a brief but spectacular career. Members of the Peking Opera School , including Jackie Chan , Yuen Biao , and Sammo Hung , played extras and bit parts in several Shaw Brothers films in the s, although they were unknowns at the time.
The films produced by the Shaw Brothers Studio were highly popular among Chinese communities in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia and they would have a significant influence on later filmmakers, particularly in the Kung fu genre.
These films also reached the West and were popular for a time in the s, and had some influence on filmmakers such as Quentin Tarantino , who paid homage to the studio by displaying their logo in his Kill Bill: Volume 1 and 2 films and adapting the styles of some of their films.
