|Born in Zhejiang in 1915, Doe Chin started his film career as a screenwriter before directing his first film for the Great Wall Studio in 1951. Because of his literature background, Doe worked as the writer and director for most of his films. Doe hit his stride and established himself as one of the most promising directors of Mandarin-language dramas and musicals with the film "Our Sister Hedy". He joined Shaw Brothers in 1959 and further cemented his reputation with the box office hit "Les Belles", the studio's first colour production. "Les Belles" also won a few awards at the Asian Film Festival with Linda Lin Dai as best actress, best editing, best art direction and best sound recording. In 1961, Doe wrote and directed the tearjerker "Love Without End", which won lead actress Linda Lin Dai yet another best actress award at the Asian Film Festival in 1962. The movie's theme was also named best song in the same festival too. Continued with his success, Doe's "The Blue and the Black" quarried Best Picture Awards at 13th Asian Film Festival and two awards at 13th Asian Film Festival and two awards at 5th Golden Horse Awards.
