Many would have watched films made by Golden Harvest and find this opening most familiar.

 

 

RIP Raymond Chow, founder of Golden Harvest and producer of many Bruce Lee (First of Fury, Enter the Dragon, ..), Michael Hui (半斤八兩, 賣身契, 摩登保鑣, ..), Jackie Chan (A計劃, 警察故事, 龍兄虎弟, ..), Sammo Hung (鬼打鬼, 人嚇人, 五福星, 殭屍先生, ..)  films, and was one of the first to take HK action films to Hollywood (e.g. Cannonball Run series).

嘉禾創辦人鄒文懷逝世,終年91歲。《蘋果》今午致電鄒文懷女兒鄒重珩,但不獲接聽。人稱《EYT之父》的資深影視人蔡和平表示,昨已得悉鄒正處於彌留階段,其女兒亦已趕到他病床旁陪伴。

 

蔡稱,當年因《歡樂今宵》關係曾與鄒有數面之緣,一年前亦曾與鄒氏夫婦茶聚。他續表示,最後一次看到鄒露面,是數月前的一個派對,當時他留意到鄒步履緩慢,亦需要女兒攙扶。他坦言當時已感到鄒的精神和氣色不太好。蔡和平本身是已故武打巨星李小龍的好友,盛讚鄒文懷及嘉禾當年「將李小龍帶出世界」,更令李小龍成為香港武打演員的典範,形容他對香港電影貢獻良多,「我好Respect佢。」

特首林鄭月娥對著名製片人鄒文懷辭世表示深切哀悼。她稱鄒文懷在電影界地位卓越,於七十年代創辦嘉禾公司,開創多類型電影風格,製作了不少風靡一時的電影,亦提攜了多位國際級導演和演員,對締造香港八十年代的電影黃金期功不可沒。為表揚他推動香港電影業發展的貢獻,一九九八年獲頒金紫荊星章,「我對鄒文懷的辭世深感哀痛,謹代表香港特別行政區政府,向他的家人致以深切慰問」。商務及經濟發展局局長邱騰華亦發聲明表示哀悼。

 

西九文化區管理局主席、前政務司司長唐英年表示,鄒文懷對香港有莫大貢獻,是電影界泰斗,他將李小龍的電影帶到海外,令香港電影揚威國際。唐英年指,任職工商科技局局長期間及香港沙士期間,一直與鄒文懷就香港電影業的發展緊密聯繫,對其離世深切哀悼,是電影界損失。

 

工程師學會前會長周明權今早出殯,影星許冠文到場致哀。許離場時被問及鄒文懷逝世消息,他當時一臉愕然,稱未曾聽聞,又反問記者是否確認鄒的死訊。

 

資深導演張同祖表示,今天才由廣州回港,對鄒病危消息全不知情。他指雖然較少與鄒直接接觸,但形容鄒在片場內對人頗和善,「佢見到人都笑嘻嘻。」他與鄒都住在佐敦,算是半個街坊,有時外出遇見都會打招呼,但最近一年半已較少在區內看到他。張又表示,鄒絕對是一個成功的製片人,當年由嘉禾出品的《炮彈飛車》,更令香港動作片在國際上嶄露頭角。

 

曾任電影監製的立法會體育、演藝、文化及出版界議員馬逢國稱,鄒文懷是一名愛護後輩、願意提攜新人、熱愛電影的謙謙君子。他記得鄒文懷曾支持過他拍攝電影外,最深印象是早年他代表衛星電視洽購嘉禾片庫一事。馬憶述,當時整個洽購過程長達一年多近兩年,雙方頻密接觸,令他有機會深入地認識鄒文懷,從而在鄒的身上學到更多,他形容鄒「好識捕捉市場脈搏」,因而製出作多質素高又具市場潛力的電影。最近一次碰面,已是約半年前的事,當時一班朋友相約看電影和吃飯,鄒文懷亦有份,馬指間中都會在戲院遇到鄒,可見鄒確實是十分喜歡電影的人。

 

鄒文懷於1970年與著名電影製作人何冠昌及電影人梁風一同離開當時香港影壇龍頭的邵氏電影公司,另起爐灶創辦嘉禾娛樂,及後更在主板上市。嘉禾影業公司曾招攬武打巨星李小龍加盟,80年代亦捧紅成龍、洪金寶、許冠文等巨星,製作多齣精彩動作電影,其中許冠文的《鬼馬雙星》為嘉禾創下票房紀錄,影星張曼玉亦是旗下藝人。

 

隨着90年代後期香港電影市場萎縮,嘉禾轉型重點經營院線,但對挽救業務無甚幫助。2004年與鄒文懷份屬好友的李嘉誠斥資近3,500萬元買入嘉禾娛樂股份,成為嘉禾娛樂第二大股東,當年外界形容李嘉誠的入股為「出手打救」鄒文懷,但鄒稱是李嘉誠的經常性投資,正如自己也會投資對方項目一樣。

not only he promoted many superstars, he also saved the film industry by setting up cinemas to let more people watch movie when the industry almost die off by all the pirated vcd/dvd in the 90s.

That year, SG had its first multiplex .. Golde Village Yishun 10. I was sua ku and never seen a multiplex before ... and the first cinema don't allow you to ownself bring your own kacang puteh into the theatre, the frst cinema that checks your bags for ownself bring snacks, the first cinema that ownself picks the seats for you with a computer, the first cinema to issue a computer-printed ticket.

 

That year, the first movie I watched at Yishun 10, I recall was Jackie Chan's Police Story III (Supercop), a Golden Harvest film. Jackie Chan hung on to a helicopter and flew around Kuala Lumpur, fighting along side Michelle Yeung, Miss Malaysia from Ipoh.

 

The movie started with the familiar dum dum dum dum .... Golden Harvest opening, as me and my friends chum on the most expensive movie snack we've ever had back then, pop corn. [laugh] [laugh]

 

Such memories of old SG in the early 90's.
