吳回 | NG Wui

No details


Ng Wui was born in 1912 in Guangzhou. Unable to get a formal education, he attended a drama school in 1929, then worked as a live narrator for silent films. He came to Hong Kong in 1939 and entered the film industry during the nascent days of the talkies, joining the Cantonese cinema company Grandview Film in 1940, acting in small parts as well as working behind the camera.

Ng quickly earned the chance to direct, making his debut with Tonight the Moon Is Full (1941), followed by Three Heroes (1941, co-directed with Lee Sun-fung). After Japanese forces occupied Hong Kong in December, 1941, he returned to Guangzhou, forming drama troupes and staged war-effort plays. He came back to Hong Kong after the war, returning to the film industry in 1947, serving as both actor and director. Ng soon became known as a director at once good and efficient, able to complete quality films in record time while bringing out commanding performances from his actors. In a fruitful career, he had made over 220 films. Ng was also a prolific and respected actor, appearing in over 100 films, mostly in character roles.

In the early 1950s, Ng teamed with 20 Cantonese cinema filmmakers to form Union Film Enterprise, which, faithful to a dedication to reverse the industry trend of shoddy productions, revolutionized Cantonese cinema in a few short years and with lasting impact. Of the 44 films produced by Union, Ng directed 20, including the company’s inaugural work Family (1953), as well as Big Thunderstorm (1954), The Sworn Sisters (1954), Money (1959), Humanity (1960) and Sea (1963). Other renowned works he directed include The Prodigal Son (1952), Madam Wan (1954),Thunderstorm and Wilderness (1956).

When Cantonese cinema went into decline in the 1970s, he joined Rediffusion Television in 1970, initially as director and later as actor, appearing in many drama series. He also directed several films for independent companies, his last effort the comedy Crazy Hustlers (1979). He retired form film in the mid-1980s, moving to Guangdong with his wife, former actress Yip Ping, occasionally making cameos in film and on television, his last appearance in film the Stephen Chow comedy Hail the Judge (1994). Ng passed away in 1996.
