Legendary Hong Kong movie mogul, westerners are forever in his debt for introducing us to Bruce Lee in The Big Boss. He also brought Jackie Chan to our screens. Ran Golden Harvest studios, and many times you'd find a film being shot on the streets, financed and produced by Golden Harvest. Much revered and respected in world cinema, not just the Asian market. RIP Mr Chow.
Made and financed loads of influential films. Brought to the attention of audiences actors and actresses that would become huge influences across the globe. Quite simply he changed the face of world wide cinema forever.
RIP Raymond Chow. He really kicked off Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan's career if he found a way to get them into film. I've heard Jackie Chan was troubled before he went into cinema, so I would think Raymond Chow did something to kick start his career.
