Run Run Shaw Turns 100

 

Hong Kong entertainment guru Run Run Shaw became a centenarian on Thursday.

His 100th birthday will be celebrated with a ceremony on Thursday evening in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of Hong Kong Television Broadcasts Limited, better known as TVB, which is a dominant producer of long-running Cantonese TV dramas.

Shaw, who still serves as TVB’s executive chairman, co-founded the empire in November, 1967.

He also co-founded another company, Shaw Brothers, in 1930. Since then it has contributed enormously to the Hong Kong martial-arts film industry. Its well-known productions include One-Armed Swordsman (1967), Five Fingers of Death (1972), and Five Deadly Venoms (1978).

The film and television tycoon is also a generous philanthropist, financing several schools in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland. Many universities have buildings named after him.

He also set up the Shaw Prize, which has been dubbed the “Asian Nobel Prize.”

Run Run Shaw attributes his longevity to regular exercise and his media career.

Run Run Shaw is a great person of the 20th century. Over the years, he has donated billions of dollars to charity, schools and hospitals. His name is on many buildings in Hong Kong due to his generous donations. The fourth constituent college of the collegiate Chinese University of Hong Kong is also named after Sir Run Run, whose patronage made the establishment of the college possible. Maybe that’s why he lives so long.
