(Chang Cheh, 1968, Hong Kong, 104 minutes)
Initially released in America under the (more fun) title The Girl with the Thunderbolt Kick, Cheng Pei-Pei here reprises her role as Golden Swallow for director Chang Cheh (Five Deadly Venoms) after first appearing as such in Come Drink with Me (also playing the WFS in May). Working with cinematographer Lau Kar-leung (36th Chamber of Shaolin), Chang cited Golden Swallow as his personal favorite of his films in his memoirs.
