Nancy Kwan at Cinequest

The email came late last night: The weekend world premiere showings of To Whom It May Concern: Ka Shen’s Journey, a documentary about star Nancy Kwan, will be graced by the ultimate guest: Kwan herself.

Born in 1939 in Hong Kong, Kwan was a ballet student when producer Ray Stark nabbed her for a breakout role in The World of Suzie Wong with William Holden in 1960. She followed with Flower Drum Song and became a pioneer Asian star for about a decade until she went back to Hong Kong.

The film shows tonight at 6:45pm and tomorrow at 7pm, both times at the San Jose Rep. Kwan will be in attendance for both showings.
