An Evening with Hollywood Legend Nancy Kwan @ the NY Historical Society

From her memorable role in The World of Suzie Wong to her remarkable performance in Flower Drum Song, Nancy Kwan is one of the first actresses of Chinese descent to achieve fame in Western cinema, opening the doors for many actors to follow. In an intimate conversation with acclaimed producer Susan Lacy, Ms. Kwan recounts the defining moments of her memorable career and shares stories of influential friendships with icons such as Bruce Lee and Dean Martin, among others.

Nancy Kwan has been the star of more than 40 films, in a wide variety of roles, from the 1960s to today. She is most well-known for her roles in The World of Suzie Wong and Flower Drum Song.
Susan Lacy (moderator), the creator and former executive producer of Thirteen/WNET’s award-winning biography series American Masters, is currently working with HBO to create a biographical series for its documentary division.
