Biography
 
  Tso Tat Wah went to Shanghai and made his screen debut there with The Hero of Guangdong when he was only fifteen. On his return to Hong Kong in 1935, he took part in a film called Bandits from Shandong. He took up his first leading role in 1939 in the film Journey of the Heroine. After the war, he founded Yau Kiu Films Company and made Seven Swords and Thirteen Heroes and other Martial Arts films.

In his long and prolific career, Tso took part in no less than 700 films, most of which are of the Martial Art type, but also with diversions into other genres like cloak-and-dagger and detective films.

Tso is best remembered by his portrayal of Leung Foon, the head disciple of Kung Fu legend Wong Fei Hung in the Wong Fei Hung series and Lung Kim Fei of the Buddhist Palm series.

In 2001, Tso was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Hong Kong Film Critics Association. In 2003, he was given the Professional Achievement Award at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
