The Kingdom and the Beauty (Chinese: 江山美人; pinyin: Jiang shan mei ren) is a 1959 Hong Kong musical-drama film directed by Li Han-hsiang.[2] The film was set in Imperial China, directed by a Hong Kong based-Mainland Chinese director and produced by the famed Hong Kong Shaw Brothers film studio. Although there was minimal Singaporean input in the film-making, the film was selected as the Singaporean entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 32nd Academy Awards, but was not nominated.[3]
