Biography
 
  After the suicide of Hong Kong movie star Linda Lin Dai 林黛 (1934-1964), two movies that she was shooting for Shaw Brothers were unfinished. The company looked for a new actress for three months and auditioned over 2,000 people before finding an actress who looked a little bit like her, Elsie Tu 杜蝶. The latter finished the shooting of the movie "The Lotus Lamp 寶蓮燈" co-starring Cheng Pei-pei (released in 1965) and also the epic 2-part war drama "The Blue and The Black 藍與黑" (released in 1966). Afterwards, Elsie played in a few other Shaw Brothers productions, the last one was "Forever Diamonds 拜倒石榴裙" in 1968. Then, she disappeared from the film industry. (Frédéric Ambroisine)
