 Biography

Hsu Hsin was born in Suzhou, China in 1930. He was an editor at Foo Wa Film Company in the 1950s before joining the new Mandarin film company Feng Huang. Many of director Zhu Shilin’s films were edited by Hsu. He also took on acting roles, playing important parts in films such as A Widow’s Tears (1956), An Unmarried Mother (1958) and The Precious Little Moon (1959). Starting from 1960, he was assistant director for helmers Chan Ching-po and Yam Yi-chi.

In 1969, Hsu co-directed The Heroic New Generation with Chen Chuan-chuan, followed by The River Dragon (1970), which he co-directed with Chan Ching-po. Soon after, he took the helm on his own and directed Inside Football Circle (1974) and The Metropolitan Quartet (1978). As one of the earliest Hong Kong filmmakers to shoot in China, Hsu directed the action flicks To Kill the Big Villain in Mt. Tai (1980) and Cut-Throat Struggle for an Invaluable Treasure (1982) there.
