    Ohn Maung, Burma's pioneer filmmaker, had founded the Burma Film Company. He hired Nyi Pu, Burma's first actor, to act in the first Burmese feature film, the silent Myitta Nit Thuya (Love and Liquor).

    The film opened with the title "Burma Film Presents: Love and Liquor" but there were no credits or mention of the cast. It was based on a story by P Moe Nin.

    Love and Liquor premiered at the Royal Cinema in Yangon on October 13, 1920, a day since commemorated as Myanmar Movie Day.

    The film proved a major success, despite its poor quality due to a fixed camera position and inadequate film accessories.
