The last imperial ruler of China, Pu Yi (John Lone), led the most unusual of lives. At three-years old, he was named Emperor and was not allowed to leave Peking. After World War II, the Communists put him in prison for 10 years until his release at which time he became an ordinary citizen serving under Mao Tse Tung. This film won an impressive nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Director.
