Roy (Mo) Rene (1891-1954), comedian, was born on 15 February 1891, at Hindley Street, Adelaide, fourth of seven children of a Dutch Jew, Hyam (Henry) Sluice or Sluys, cigarmaker, and his Anglo-Jewish wife Amelia, née Barnett.Named Henry Vande (later spelt variously), he received a sketchy education at the Dominican Convent, a Christian Brothers school and Grote Street Public School.
He later appeared in 'Cavalcade' with Jack Davey, and as Professor Mc Cackie in 'It Pays to be Ignorant'.
Back on the Tivoli circuit in May 1926, he was partnered by Fred Bluett in an act entitled 'The Admiral and the Sailor'.
Fuller persuaded him to rejoin Phillips in 1927; once again 'Stiffy' and 'Mo' broke box-office records, but the partnership finally broke up in New Zealand in 1928.
For his portrayal as Master Yu, Hung won his second Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor at the 8th Hong Kong Film Awards.
The film was selected as the Hong Kong entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 62nd Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
