      BURT KWOUK
      BIOGRAPHY
      http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hc&id=1800106344&cf=biog&intl=us

      Born in England and raised in Shanghai, actor Burt Kwouk can best be
      described as a funnier variation of Bruce Lee. To be sure, many of
      his acting assignments have called for straight interpretations,
      notably his roles in such films Satan Never Sleeps (1961) and The
      Brides of Fu Manchu (1965).

      But Kwouk is best known for his role as karate champ Cato Fong,
      right-hand man of the hapless Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers).
      Trained by his boss to attack without warning (the better to keep
      Clouseau on guard and in shape), Cato has invariably done his job
      too well, kicking and chopping at the Inspector at the most
      inopportune times -- when Clouseau is making love, for example.

      As Cato, Bert Kwouk has appeared in the Blake Edwards-directed
      Clouseau films A Shot in the Dark (1964), Return of the Pink Panther
      (1975), The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1978) and Revenge of the
      Pink Panther (1979), and has guest-starred in two pastiche films
      made after Peter Sellers' death, Curse of the Pink Panther (1981)
      and Trail of the Pink Panther (1982).

      Outside the aegis of Blake Edwards, Kwouk has taken action-oriented
      parts in films like Rollerball (1980) and Air America (1990). For
      several years in the '80s, Burt Kwouk played a Japanese commandant
      on the British TV series Tenko. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
