Directed by King Hu | 1966

With Cheng Pei-pei, Yueh Hua, Chan Hung-lit

"Though Hu was directing action for the first time, his fight scenes are fluent, nimble, and suspenseful."
—The Chicago Reader

Hu’s first wuxia film is a landmark marriage of swordplay with the stylized grandeur of Chinese opera, in which a woman (Cheng) goes undercover as a warrior in order to rescue her brother from the clutches of the Five Tiger Gang. A seminal work of Hong Kong cinema, this Shaw Brothers production established a number of Hu’s recurring motifs: a strong female action hero, lavish art direction, and elaborately choreographed, balletic fight sequences.
