The Fearless Hyena (1979)

Summary: A Good 1st time attempt at direction
After making a string of awful Bruce Lee imitations forced upon by Lo Wei, Jackie Chan convinced Wei that he should try to make a movie as a director himself.

Chan stars as a troublemaking kid who lives with his grandfather. His grandfather had warned him about not using his Kung Fu (for it is a secret).
When his grandfather is killed, Chan seeks revenge after taking lessons from a crippled beggar.

This is far superior to the crap that Lo Wei had made with Jackie Chan even though I think DM and Snake In The Eagle's Shadow were much more enjoyable. This was a great debut for Jackie Chan as a director who has directed many classics after. Definitely worth a watch.
