No details


Daniel Lau Tan-ching started working as an assistant director in the early 1960s and served under many important Cantonese film directors like Wong Toi and Lee Tit. In 1965, he wrote the screenplay to The Ghost with Six Fingers (Parts 1 & 2). The following year, he formed Gold Key Film Co. with film star Woo Fung and directed the company’s first and only production, the action caper The Warrant (1966, co-directed with Ho Hoi Kei), starring Connie Chan Po-chu and Woo Fung. Lau’s sophomore effort was an action film starring Josephine Siao and Kenneth Tsang, Rocambole (1967). When Cantonese films went into decline in the late 1960s, Lau went to Taiwan to direct the drama, When the Sun Goes Down (1969), starring Gua Ah-leh, as well as the comedy To Climb High (1972), starring Jenny Hu. During the kung-fu film craze of the mid-1970s, Lau made Dragon and Tiger (1974), starring Wang Kuan-hsiung and File of Heroes, starring Charles Heung. In 1980, he directed The Magnificent Kick, featuring veteran actors Kwan Tak-hing and Jason Pai Piao, and the same year, he made Bruce - King of Kung Fu, co-directed by and starring Bruce Le. After directing Soul Killer (1982), Lau left the film industry.
