Unhappy Run Run Shaw, Kung Fu Movie Pioneer, Dies

"If you've ever enjoyed an action-packed Kung Fu film," , "take a moment to thank Sir Run Run Shaw, who passed away Tuesday."

There are conflicting accounts about whether Shaw was 106 or 107 at the time of his death. There's no disagreement, though, about his influence on the film industry.

"the colorful Hong Kong media mogul whose name was synonymous with low-budget Chinese action and horror films and especially with the wildly successful kung fu genre, which he is largely credited with inventing."

Question

Is his surname Run or Shaw because Run sounds like a peculiar surname.

I think Shaw is his surname. Run is his nickname maybe.

Shaw 邵 is indeed his surname and I believe Run Run rhymes with his childhood nickname 仁仁. Many northern Chinese tend to double one of their childhood names to become their nick names. For example Chui Mei can become Chui Chui or Mei Mei.
