R.I.P. Raymond Chow Man Wai

Looks like English-language news hasn't broken yet, but he passed away.

This man was responsible for greenlighting so many classics, helping launch so many careers, and arguably changing HK cinema all through Golden Harvest. Say what you will about his practices, but HK cinema would be very different without his company, and contributions. 

R.I.P.

Golden Harvest rules!!!

For my personal taste Golden Harvest, has my favourite original library of martial art movies of any motion picture company.

 

Golden Harvest also had my favourite logo of any movie company. I'm specifically referring to the "Big G" 1978-1997 version which starts at 01:37 in the video below:

He had as great an impact on martial arts/action cinema as his former boss, Sir Run Run Shaw. Rest In Peace, Raymond Chow.

Yes they were two of the great movie moguls. Who both dominated Chinese language cinema in away that is unlikely to ever be repeated.

The first Hong Kong productions I've ever viewed were Golden Harvest movies, The BL flick's and Hand of Death/Prodigal Son/The Young Master. His productions heavily saturated the U.K video stores, during my teen's, much to my appreciaiton.

Same goes for me. The first Hong Kong movies I saw were; The Accidental Spy, Rumble in the Bronx and Police Story. Then after those I got into Hong Kong Legends which a large amount, perhaps the majority were Golden Harvest movies.

Yueh Hua, Jin Yong and now Raymond.... the great men are departing this world in droves it seems. Thank You Mr. Chow for bringing out countless classics and leaving behind a fabulous legacy that will hopefully be enjoyed forever. Rest In Peace
