Lady Reporter is Cynthia Rothrock’s first leading role and also the first (and to this day, only) time a Western actress had lead billing in a Hong Kong film.
Also known by other titles, The Blonde Fury, and The Female Reporter, Rothrock plays Cindy, an FBI agent sent undercover to investigate a newspaper, run by editor Ronny Yu, which is suspected of being a front for an international drug trafficking operation.
Teaming up with Elizabeth Lee (Long Arm of the Law Part 3), the two go up against a series of opponents played by some of the greatest “bad guy” actors in 80s cinema, including Billy Chow (Fist of Legend), Jeff Falcon (Outlaw Brothers, Six String Samurai), and Vincent Lyn (Tiger Cage).
Mang Hoi handles directing duties here, but much like Yes, Madam!, this was a collaborative effort between Mang Hoi and Corey Yuen, and just like that film the results are magnificent – Mang Hoi’s graceful and acrobatic choreography fusing perfectly with Corey Yuen’s hard-hitting style. But the star here is Cynthia Rothrock, and this deservedly secured her position as one of the top action stars of her era, and Eureka Classics is proud to present Lady Reporter in its UK debut on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration.
