One of cinema’s greatest personifications of the martial arts. Shaw Brothers filmmaker King Hu revolutionized martial arts cinema with cinematography reminiscent of a Chinese painting, kinetic camera moves, innovative action choreography and meticulous period production design, all melded into female-forward fist-and-sword tales. His breakthrough COME DRINK WITH ME put vibrant 19-year-old dancer-cum-actress Cheng Pei-Pei on the action film map as Golden Swallow, a general’s daughter tasked with rescuing her brother from the clutches of bandits, managing to take on all opponents with several breathtaking bounds.
