RIP, Wong Tin-Lam
Veteran Hong Kong actor, producer, writer and director, Wong Tin-Lam has died. His work in tv and film spans the 1950s through the 2000s. Gutter readers are probably most familiar with Wong’s work for Johnnie To and Wai Ka-Fai like The Mission and Election (as well as comedies like Fat Choy Spirit and My Left Eye Sees Ghosts). Find some obituaries here and here. And here’s a clip from Wong’s 1960 noir, The Wild, Wild Rose, with femme fatale Grace Chang singing a sassy, sexy Carmen.
