The Last Emperor (1987)
Role: Chang
The Last Emperor is an Academy Award-winning 1987 biopic about the life of Pǔyí, the last Emperor of China. The movie was written by Mark Peploe and Bernardo Bertolucci, and directed by Bertolucci. Pǔyí is represented as the objectified plaything of powerful and mysterious forces, whether as Emperor or as a war criminal.

It was the first feature film ever authorized by the government of the People's Republic of China to film in the Forbidden City.
Notes: This was a nice change from Cary's usual films, and an well made film at that. It's one of those films that you really should watch twice. Cary didn't have that big of a role, not very much screen time, but it was one of his first major films.
