Biography
 
  Ng Cho Fan appeared in the 1932 classic Gunshot at Midnight. He later took part in two films on the war with the Japanese Lifeline in 1935 and Melody of Life in 1937. In 1948 Ng started a movement to "clean up" the Cantonese film industry. A year later he formed the South China Film Industry Workers Union. In 1952 he founded Union Film Enterprise Ltd with Cheung Ying, Pak Yin, Wong Man Lei, a number of other film workers, twenty one of them in all. The company's goal was to make serious movies that closely reflect life in Hong Kong society and also promote the dignity of the film as an art form. Ng starred in the 1953 production Spring, which won him the Greatest Individual Achievement Award given by the Cultural Ministry of the Peoples Republic of China. "Movie King of South China" was how Ng was sometimes called in his time.
