  Biography (gstage.com)

Instrumental in developing the careers of Hong Kong superstars Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, Lo Wei began his film career in Shanghai during World War II and he achieved stardom soon after moving to Hong Kong in 1948. His first major supporting role was in the landmark epic Sorrows of the Forbidden City. Lo achieved leading man status with Prisoner of Love in 1951, and graduated to the director's chair in 1953 with The Husband's Diary, in which he also starred. He was one of the Shaw Brothers' most prominent filmmakers between 1964 and 1970 with nearly twenty features as director-actor. He next moved to Golden Harvest where he directed Bruce Lee's first two mega hits, The Big Boss and Fist of Fury. In 1974 he founded the Lo Wei Film Company and directed a half-dozen features with Jackie Chan between 1976 and 1979. Lo's output slowed down in the 1980's, but he continued to be involved in motion picture production until his death in 1996.
