It is little wonder why Chang Cheh is considered legendary. Not only did he usher in a whole new kind of "yanggang" (macho) cinema, but he was also one of the most prolific and consistent directors in the world. He made more than 70 films in the period between 1960 and 1975, but this was considered one of the most notable. A nominal sequel to the equally acclaimed SHAOLIN MARTIAL ARTS, this powerful production came a year later and cemented Alexander Fu Sheng's superstardom with a performance many proclaimed the best of the young lead's career. It is also one of the last Chang Cheh films choreographed by Liu Chia-liang, who was becoming a legendary director in his own right. Together, they made this tale of the Shaolin vs. Manchu conflict -- played out at a textile mill -- one of the highlights in kung-fu film history.
Movie queen Ivy Ling Po is ideally cast as a male scholar in this historical Huangmei Opera romance. The curious title refers to two props that signal a happy beginning to what develops into a tragic love story between the scholar and a local beauty (played by Fang Ying). He polishes mirrors as a pretext to get closer to his love, who signals her approval by tossing him a bunch of lichees. From that point on the course of true love proves operatically rocky, complete with murder and suicide. It also proves that the special screen chemistry between Ivy Ling Po and Fang Ying, first demonstrated in the box office smash West Chamber, was no fluke. Watch for Hong Kong’s favorite fatty, Lydia Shum, in one of her earlier Shaw Brothers roles.
