This film features the famous Ruan Ling Yu who was one of the most iconic actresses in the 1930s.

Belonging to the silent film era, many of her films are lost to time. Love and Duty was only recovered in 90's.


It has undergone a 2K restoration in 2014.

Having spent 1.5 years on this project, WCL is finally ready to reveal this project in 2022!!


I was told many of the bonus materials have english sub to make this precious film more accessible to the western collectors.


Hope this release will capture an interest in this community!

For those still on the fence, I thought I'd share a link to an excellent review the film received from a web site I frequent;





Also; should you wish to see an example of the restoration they've managed for this 1931 film, Youtube has a good one;
