More HK Actor Photos

Here are some more pictures from my rapidly dwindling collection that I squirreled away for years. It's nice putting up a bunch of Chow Yun Fat - along with Brigitte Lin he was the main reason I got into Hong Kong films initially. It's hard to remember now how great he was back in the 80's to the mid-90's - the God of Actors was one of his nicknames. Elizabeth Lee probably isn't known to many of you - she was for the most part stuck in B films through the 80's but she gave off a kind of sexual heat that I found very attractive in films like Gunmen, Picture of a Nymph and Widow Warriors. She was also one of the few short-haired actresses in Hong Kong. I finally found enough Eric Tsang photos to put up a page of his. Last year at the HKIFF he was the subject of a retro and a well-deserved one - a true renaissance man in HK film and I hope to do a write-up soon on him from the information I gathered from the book they published on him. It's also about time I put up a lot of Francis Ng pictures - such a great actor from when he was always stuck in bad nutty guy roles to eventually doing leading roles in films. And 47 pictures of Gloria Yip may seem like overkill to most but she was such a cutie in her short career (though she made a quick comeback some 5 years back but found few roles in the declining fortunes of HK film).
