Just like many others, he started out at Shaw Bros' where he worked on such films as Jimmy Wang-Yu's The Chinese Boxer (1970). Coming from Shanghai, he would blaze a path towards a successful career in the kung-fu movie business. He was the man Run Run Shaw sent to get Bruce Lee to sign with Shaw studios, but when that didn't work out, he left and opened Seasonal Films.
His newly founded company gave us many excellent films - Snake In The Eagle's Shadow (1978), Invincible Armor (1977), Dance Of The Drunken Mantis (1979), The Secret Rivals (1976), Game Of Death-2 (1981), as well as, Drunken Master-2 (1994) and even producing Once Upon A Time In China (1991). He was instrumental in helping Yuen Woo-Ping get his feet firmly planted as a Choreographer and a Director.
Seasonal Films was one of the top film companies in Hong Kong during the 70's. Along with top companies like Shaw Brothers, Golden Harvest, and First Films, he had established a very viable company that ranked with some of the best during this time. He is also the first director to help distribute Kung-fu films in the English language to America through his company. He also helped introduce us to the kicking styles of John Liu, Wang Jang-Li, and Bruce Liang, as well as discovering Conan Lee. It is safe to say that without this man, we would have been missing out on some of the best kung-fu films around.
