SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW
SE YING DIU SAU
1978, Sony Repertory, 90 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Yuen Woo-ping

Martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-ping makes his directorial debut on this seminal Hong Kong action film, whose infusion of comedy and acrobatic stunts helped propel Jackie Chan to stardom. Chan plays a put-upon janitor at a martial arts school who befriends an old beggar (Yuen Siu-tien, the director’s father), who turns out to be a kung fu master fleeing the assassins of the Eagle Claw clan. English dubbed version.
