YesAsia Editorial Description

Probably Shaw Brothers' greatest star during the late fifties and early sixties, Linda Lam Doi was a tragic figure who committed suicide at an early age. Beyond the Great Wall features one of her finest performances, as Wang Chao Chun, one of the Emperor's many concubines who desired to be his favorite. However, her existence in the palace takes a detour when she's tricked into marrying the leader of the Huns. Her sacrifice averts war, but it dooms the unfortunate heroine to a life unlike the one she desired. Beyond the Great Wall is a stirring tale of sacrifice and epic tragedy, and features the wonderful sets, costumes, and Mandarin songs that Shaws' Huangmei Operas are known for. Based on a true story, Beyond the Great Wall captures the legendary Linda Lam Doi in a glamorous, heartbreakingly tragic performance.

Great art in a small package Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Shaw Brothers managed to tell a powerful tale in only 88 minutes in this superb huangmei film. Only Lin Dai had the presence and charisma to deliver such a strong, yet vulnerable, regal, yet sympathetic, performance. The music, costuming, set decoration, and cinematography are sumptuous and beautiful throughout this film gem.

Very, very highly recommended for a general audience.
