BIOGRAPHY
Chang Cheh was undisputedly a master of action movies. He created his own style of films which are characterized by their robustness and highly original action sequences. In 1965 Shaw Brothers promoted coloured films with great efforts and action films became one of the focuses of Shaw’s productions. At that time, Chang came out with “The One-armed Swordsman” which made a record one million dollars at the box office. With that film Chang established himself as the leading director of costumed action movies. He subsequently made “The Assassin”, “Golden Swallow”, “Vengeance”, “The New One-armed Swordsman”, “Boxer from Shantung”, “The Blood Brothers”, “Disciples of Shaolin” and other action movies. With these films Chang also introduced to the world many famous action movie stars. In 1974 he founded Chang’s Film Co. in Taiwan. Chang rejoined Shaw Brothers in 1976 and continued his film making career in the Mainland since 1986. Chang was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Hong Kong Film Critics’ Association in 1997. - Hong Kong Tourism Board
