The Alexander Fu Sheng Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, you can post everything you want in this thread that I opened in hommage to Alexander. I love him, he was an adorable person and a fantastic actor. We can talk about our vision about his career, his movies, all you want. I know that lot of people wrote tons of lines about his life and career but I feel the desire to open a new branch. We can share experiences, opinions, pictures! :D

Women, if you are there, your "female" point of view is welcome!:D

He had the most beautiful eyes and smile of all the SB stars. He shines in the heaven as the sunshine.

All of you are invited.

Fu Sheng is an ALL-TIME GREAT in HK MA films. Will always be missed.

Much respect.

My favorite films of his, New Shaolin Boxer and Disciples of Shaolin. Two classics, similar storylines.

I always liked Fu Sheng. He blazed a trail for kung fu comedy that would later be walked by Jackie Chan. Much respect to his memory. The world is poorer without him.

Er, Chan started the comedy thing in '78. FS didn't start hamming it up until later.

So Fu Sheng wasn't doing kung fu comedy in Na Cha The Great in 1974? Me thinks you need more training, young one.

Not only that but one must know that to the Chinese viewers back then (.... especially women) ... Fu Sheng was the man, Jackie Chan has been never really considered handsome by anyone's standard.

Fu Sheng was the heartthrob to many women, his presence alone guaranteed handsome box office returns, Jackie Chan didn't really get it going until he went all out with comedy and insane martial arts sequences.

Quoted for truth.

Hello everyone,

I love Fu Sing.

I have permission from Alexandra to ask here,

Does anyone know, have they ever read anywhere, WHEN Fu Sheng lived in Hawaii?

With gratitude and respect

To me, his best role is as Fang Si Yuk in all Chang Cheh's Shaolin series.

Hello and welcome to the thread dedicated to Alexander. Fang Shih Yu was interpreted by Alexander as nobody did. I adore him in this character. He plays and fight with the fan with elegance and power. Look a little to my humble tribute to Heroes Two specially focused in fan fighting at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTamK_5IuPg

He is always on my mind!!

:kiss:

Great idea this thread, Alexandra. Thanks a lot from one of his greatest fans (beside you of course)!

Oh hello there! All we can say in this thread is always with respect. But my intention is to be open mind. Thanks to you for writing. You can explain yourself here. Meanwhile we write and think and watch whatever Alexander appears, he is still alive.

:)

P.S. "Blutsbruder" (blood brother) Nice nick!

Agree. Alexander had from the start point of his career this magic touch, this charisma for comedy and good martial art skills that not all the actors get with training because you must born with this "angel" (of course he trained very hard in several martial arts disciplines). Jackie was funny but never handsome. I remember Jakie saying that him looks like "Snoopy" hahhaha! Anyway, I like Jackie.... as actor.

Welcome my dear friend! Welcome! I haven't the answer, but I hope some of the people on here can help you.

You don't need my permission to write about Alexander, you are welcome everywhere you go.

Ah! Magnificent Ruffians (Wanderers)! His performance as an actor, with facial expressions, and flexibility in the body on screen is awesome.

He had great charisma that lit up the screen. My favorite film of his was of course The Chinatown Kid. He brought the character of Tang Tung to life and made you care about him, the ending(international version) of him giving his watch to his friend and his friend(Sun Chien) accepting it was poignant and touching.

Now, that I can call myself the proud owner of all of his movies (in mostly any kind of versions) my favourites are:

- Disciples of Shaolin (1976) (The first one I saw him, so it's holiy to me)

- The new Shaolin Boxers (1976)

- Heroes Two (1974)

- Chinatown Kid (1977)

- Na Cha the Great (1974)

- Men from the Monastery (1974)

- Shaolin Temple (1976)

- Boxer Rebellion (1976)

- Shaolin Martial Arts (1974)

- The Shaolin Avengers (1976)

- Five Shaolin Masters (1974)

But, as a real fan, I like the rest of his films, too.

I seem to recall an interview with one of the Shaw actors, maybe Wang Lung Wei, who talked about Fu Sheng, and he said his real-life personality was pretty similar to his on-screen one, in that he was a happy-go-lucky, easy going guy. That's the impression I always had of him, too.

I think you could make a pretty good argument that Fu Sheng's passing was kind of symbolic of the end of the Shaws martial arts filmmaking era.

I've read, and also seen in interviews actors and actresses say that Chang Cheh often cast people as characters very similar to their own personalities, so you're probably right about Fu Sheng.

Off the top of my head, I would definitely have to say EIGHT DIAGRAM POLE FIGHTER is his most dramatic, for obvious reasons.

I am working on a piece of art based on this film. It's sort of my version of a poster for this film. As I was contemplating which image of Fu Sheng to use for it, I was feeling very blue. Even looking at the reference pictures I'm going to use had a very emotional effect on me. :S I will try my hardest to capture his melancholy brilliance in this role in my depiction of him.

Fu Sheng gets its highest performance quality on this film. He is out of his mind, lost the control, fall down into a melancholy and desesperation impressives facial expressions, voice modulation, crazy without limits, going into madness, the sense of inevitability, the fatal destiny... is amazing interpreted. As an actress is a delicity to see. And Lau Kar Leung catched the feel of the actor as nobody did. I would like to see your work. I was trying to made some video but my copy is very bad!:S

See you!
