In 1971, while touring Hong Kong with a Chinese arts troupe, she came to the attention of director Chor Yuen. He asked her to star opposite Lily Ho [fr] in Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan, the Shaw Brothers' first gay (lesbian) film, released in 1972. Betty Pei Ti's performance endeared her to the studio, and she was persuaded to stay in Hong Kong and make movies. In the course of the 1970s, she became more active in Taiwanese cinema and by the end of the decade appeared exclusively in Taiwanese films. She continued acting in films until 1981.
