 Biography

Tommy Lee Kam-ming (aka Kam Ming) started working for Shaw Brothers, Golden Harvest and other independent film companies as a stuntman in the early 1970s. He became an action choreographer in 1972, his most notable works including The Good and the Bad (1972) and The Secret Rivals (1976), both directed by Ng Seeyuen; Dragon Squad (1974), directed by Jimmy Wang Yu; Shaolin Wooden Men (1976), directed by Chen Chih-hua; The Hot, the Cool and the Vicious (1976) and Eagle’s Claws (1977), directed by Li Tso-nan.

Lee debuted as director writing and helming Butcher Wing (1979), starring Ng Ming-toi, a former member of Seven Little Fortunes, a performing troupe that counted as members the future superstars Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan. But the film did not fare well at the box office, having the misfortune of going up against The Magnificent Butcher (1979), about the same legendary kung-fu figure Lam Sai-wing and starring the much-more popular Hung. Lee later formed his own company and produced, wrote and directed Ninja Avenger (1982), starring Don Wang and the Japanese actor Yasuaki Kurata. He then directed two other films, Crisis (1983) and The Ninja and the Thief (1984), before retiring from film.
