No details


Born in 1926, Luk Bong (aka Luk Kam Bo) entered the film business in the 1950s, first working continuity and later as assistant director, unit manager, planner, production manager and scriptwriter in the first seven years of his career.

In 1957, Luk directed his first feature, the Cantonese Opera film Happy Reunion, beginning a prolific career, which included almost 50 Cantonese films in over a decade. Most of his films are Cantonese Operas, including Two Sisters-in-law (1958), Luring the Girls On (1959), Third Master Sha and His Charming Maid (1961) and The Uprighteous Officer and the Filial Daughter (1963). Some of his more interesting works include Prince of Thieves (1958), The Lucky Star of the Golden Palace (1958), Glass Slippers (1958), Ali Baba and the 40 Robbers (1960) and The Sleeping Beauty (1960), which are unique adaptations of Hollywood movies or foreign fairy tales staged with Cantonese opera singing and theatrics.

In 1966, Luk founded Kam Bo Motion Picture and made his debut as producer for The Tormented Life of a Woman, starring radio star Run Fung-ling and leading man Woo Fung. The majority of his later productions belong to the romance genre, finding success with the Josephine Siao vehicles The Blossoming Season (1968), Miss Fragrance (1969) and Mother Wants Me to Get Married (1969), as well as the Connie Chan-starring My Sweetheart (1969).

With the collapse of Cantonese cinema in the early 1970s, Luk turned to Mandarin films in what can be considered a low point in his career. His work during this period include the Jenny Wu feature The Wedding Song (1971) and We Visited Southeast Asia (1973), starring the veteran Mandarin actor Chiang Kuangchao. When Cantonese was used again in Hong Kong films, Luk found his stride again, directing features such as Two Omniscient Men (1976), The Clumsy Gambler (1977), Warning for the Young (1977), Worldly Foursome (1979), A Gambler’s Story (1980) and An Honest Crook (1981). After making Precious Adolescence (1983), Luk did not direct another film until 1990’s Brave Young Girls, which is also the last film he directed. He retired after producing two soft-core erotica, Fatal Attraction (1993) and The Wild Girls (1993).

Luk died on August 5th, 2004.
