维基百科英文简介:

Run Run Shaw

This is a Chinese name; the family name is Shaw.

Sir Run Run Shaw GBM CBE (23 November 1907 – 7 January 2014) was a Hong Kong media mogul and philanthropist.

Early life

Shao Ren Leng was born in Ningbo, Zhejiang of the Qing Empire in 1907, the youngest of the six sons of a Shanghai textile merchant, Shaw Yuh Hsuen (1867–1920). According to A&C Black published Who's Who 2007, he was born on 14 October, but his wife Mona Fong declined to confirm this.

In 2007, his great-nephew said Shaw's birthday was actually 23 November, which corresponded with the 14th day of the 10th month of the Chinese calendar. He received his education in American-run schools.

Career

At age 19, during his summer holiday, he followed his third elder brother Runme Shaw to Singapore to start a film market and establish the Shaw Organisation. Following that, he developed a deep interest in the movie business. The Shaw brothers founded the Tian Yi Film Company in Shanghai, which was then reorganized into the South Seas Film studio in the 1930s in Hong Kong, and later became Shaw Studios. In 1967, he launched TVB (Television Broadcasts Ltd.) in Hong Kong, growing it into a multi-billion dollar TV empire ranking today as one of the top five television producers in the world.[citation needed]

In 2000, through his company, Shaw Brothers (Hong Kong) Limited, he sold his unique library of 760 classic titles to Celestial Pictures Limited. His name is credited even in Western films he has backed, such as in Blade Runner under the The Ladd Company logo. Continuing to show perseverance, Shaw Studios entered a new era with Shaw's majority investment (through his various holding companies) in the US$180,000,000 Hong Kong Movie City project, a 1,100,000 square feet (100,000 m2) studio and production facility in Tseung Kwan O (Hong Kong). The facility features one of the largest, fully air-conditioned and sound and vibration-insulated soundstages in Asia, a full-service colour lab and digital imaging facility, over 20 sound and editing suites, a 400-seat dubbing and screening theatre, executive and production office space, banqueting facilities, and visual effects and animation capabilities. This facility serves as the centre-piece of Shaw Studios and indeed the whole Chinese film industry.

Personal life

Over the years, he has donated billions of Hong Kong Dollars to charity, schools and hospitals. His name is on many buildings in Hong Kong and China mainland 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.[5] He donated $100 million (Hong Kong dollars) for disaster relief after the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. American singer/songwriter Is'real Benton made a contribution to a charity on behalf of Shaw and his friend the late Freddie Fields.[citation needed]

His first wife, Wong Mei Chun (黃美珍), died at age 85 in 1987. Shaw Studios stopped filming that same year.[clarification needed] He remarried in Las Vegas in 1997 to Mona Fong (formerly Fong Yat-wa), the deputy chairman of TVB since 2000.[2] Shaw has four children. His eldest son, Dr. Shaw Vee Meng, heads the Shaw Foundation in Singapore.

He died at his residence on 7 January 2014 at 6:55am (HKT)at the age of 107, peacefully with his family by his side.

Awards

In 1974, he was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE). He received a knighthood in 1977 and the Grand Bauhinia Medal (GBM) from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government in 1998.

In 2013, Sir Run Run Shaw received the BAFTA Special Award for his outstanding contribution to cinema.

The Shaw Prize

He established an international award, the Shaw Prize, for scientists in three areas of research, namely astronomy, mathematics, and life and medical science. The award is up to US$1 million. The press called it the "Nobel Prize of the East".[8] The first prize was awarded in 2004.
