Jimmy Wang Yu in Chang Cheh's seminal Shaw Brothers Studio classic.
Of all the wuxia genre films, this was the one that kicked it all off. When it was released in 1967, this was a fresh new style for audiences, with emphasis on the male anti-hero, violent sword-fighting and on-screen blood letting.
Jimmy Wang Yu (MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE) stars as Fang Cheng, the titular character, a lowly servant at The Golden Sword school, who works his way up to become a capable student of the school's style.
