A classic of the Chinese Cultural Revolution — a revolutionary ballet film with a very strong dose of propaganda intertwined with its storyline, produced at the Beijing Film Studio and performed by members of the Peking Opera Troupe of Shanghai [sic].
A famous, and probably equally infamous, cultural relic of Mao’s Cultural Revolution — and, needless to say, an extremely rare one. This original set of Chinese lobby cards were printed for export to other countries.
