About the Talk

Hailed as the Laurel and Hardy of the East, Wang Sha and Ye Feng have been a staple of the television circuit since 1963 when television broadcasts started in Singapore. The duo quickly gained a following of their own. In the 1970s, they embarked on a transformative journey to Hong Kong, venturing into the realm of acting, a move that would define their enduring legacy. With a collective repertoire of over 40 films, their immersion in the Hong Kong film industry during the 1970s solidified their standing as revered entertainers and skilled comedians. Although most remembered for their roles in the Crazy Bumpkins series, Wang Sha’s rendition of Old Master Q and Ye Feng’s Mad Monk also etched a lasting mark on their audience.

How did Wang Sha and Ye Feng find their way into the Hong Kong film scene? What were the duo’s cinematic triumphs and legacies? Through his personal collection of film memorabilia and news articles, speaker Su Zhangkai will retrace the joys and pains in the journey of Wang Sha and Ye Feng’s cinematic careers.

王沙、野峰,两位新加坡极具盛名的谐星,为新加坡市民带来无数的欢乐。1963年新加坡电视台启播后,两人就和新加坡的黑白电视时代划上了等号,赢得了“电视双宝”的美誉。1970年代,两人更勇闯香江,涉足电影圈,前后一共拍摄了超过40部电影。其中的罗马导演的《阿牛》系列电影都创下很好的票房纪录,并且扬威亚洲影展。王沙的“老夫子”和野峰的“济公”电影形象,也在华人影坛中留下了重要的一笔。
王沙野峰是在怎么样的机缘巧合下到香港拍电影的?他们各自在银幕上又取得了怎么样的成就?两人的电影生涯中有哪些令人津津乐道的佳话,又有哪些不为人知的趣闻?主讲人苏章恺将透过所收集的旧资料和剪报,带大家一起回顾王沙野峰精彩的电影生涯。
