 Biography

Cheung Sum was born in 1934 in Hubei, grew up in Shanghai and graduated from the Dalian Institute of Light Industry (now Dalian Polytechnic University). After coming to Hong Kong, he joined Great Wall Movie Enterprise as a screenwriter in 1959 and wrote over a dozen films, including The Young Heiress (1959), Red Bat Apartment (1962), Treasure Island (1964) and The Jade Bow (1966). Leaving Great Wall in 1968, he wrote for production companies like Cathay, Yangtse and Goldig.

In 1970, Cheung co-directed An Apple a Day with Wang Ping for Cathay and directed The Ruthless Heart from his own script. For Yangtse, he wrote and directed Secret of My Millionaire Sister (1971) and Oh My Love (1971). He joined Goldig in 1972 and directed over ten box-office hits, including films starring the popular actress Jenny Hu, such as The Peeper, the Model and the Hypnotist (1972) and Jenny and Her Sexy Mother (1972); the James Yi Lui-vehicles The Little Man, Ah Fook (1974) and The Stupid Sailor, Ah Fook (1975); Victoria Lam’s head-shaving performance in Bald-Headed Betty (1975); and early Chow Yun-fat films The Reincarnation (1976) and Miss “O” (1978).

Cheung and his younger brother, Mandarin cinema leading man Paul Chang Chung, formed the Chang Brothers Company, which was responsible for the Cheung Sum-scripted, Paul Chang Chung-produced, directed and starred Death Comes in Three (1973). He also directed and scripted action flicks such as By Hook and by Crook (1978), Kung Fu Master Named Drunk Cat (1978) and Daggers 8 (1980). Cheung died in 2006.
