Summary: Chang Cheh fawns over Ti Lung
This Shaw Bros. melodrama is about a loner swordsmen drawn into a tragic controversy involving a martial arts clan. It's a vehicle for the young star Ti Lung who is cast in the featured role as the heroic King Eagle. Lovely Li Ching plays a dual role as rival siblings. Now you would think this would be twin sisters but you'd be wrong. The standard Shaw Studio script makes one older than the prettier younger one. A visually compelling film, this is a scenario where things happen quickly; but don't work out so good for anyone.
