Like the previous year’s Yang Kwei Fei, 1963’s The Adultress adapts a famously tragic story into a showcase for Li Li-hua. Unlike Yang Kwei Fei, The Adultress doesn’t have to excise chunks of its source material in order to make its star likable. The result is not only a more coherent film, but a far better performance from its prolific star.
Adapted from an opera, and maybe from an even older story, The Adultress retains is musical heritage, but it’s hard to think of it in the same category as Shaw’s other early 60s musicals. Although classified as a haungmei film, The Adultress‘ songs are few and far between, usually only appearing at the moments of strongest emotion. The rest of the film is plain-spoken drama, free to focus on its story of corrupted justice and the painful sacrifices of unrequited lovers Xiao Bai and Yang Nai Wu.
Sold into marriage as a child, Xiao Bai (Li Li-hua) pines for her brief but unfulfilled love affair with the gifted scholar Yang Nai Wu (Kwan Shan). Though she loves Yang, Xiao Bai remains faithful to her sullen husband, Xiao Du (Zhu Mu). Not that the gossipy villagers care, their endless taunting only inflames Xiao Du’s jealousy.
After catching the eye of Liu (Peter Kang Kwan), son of the local magistrate, Xiao Bai is drugged and raped by her spoiled stalker. Shamed and afraid, she won’t tell her husband about the attack. But the jealous husband spots the evidence of Liu’s attack and immediately blames Yang.
After Xiao Du is killed by an increasingly creepy Liu, Xiao Bai and Yang are accused of murder and thrown onto the non-existent mercy of the Chinese courts.
Corrupt judges, bribed witnesses and confessions extracted via torture–these and other various brutalities of the Chinese judicial system consume most of the rest movie. It’s all very dramatic and nerve-wracking, and excellent work from both Kwan Shan and Li Li-hua makes the already compelling story more engrossing.
Unlike many Shaw Brothers weepies, its very hard to guess how The Adultress will end. Most Shaw dramas clearly telegraph their stories, relying on the over-the-top emotion to draw audiences in. I imagine that the story was familiar enough to Chinese audiences that they would already have known the ending. But it was all new to me and I was glad that the film kept me on my toes.
In Yang Kwei Fei, Li Li-hua had to work against the abbreviated film in order to deliver an appealing performance. But in The Adultress she could work with the strong story and dramatic direction to deliver a great performance. ~Ian (morethankungfu.com)

The Generation Gap 1973 DVDRiP XviD ASJ-CG
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Cheh Chang
Writers: Cheh Chang, Kuang Ni
Cast: David Chiang ... Ling Hsi
Agnes Chan ... Cindy (as Agnes Chan Mei Ling)
Lung Ti ... Ling Hsiao
Ti Lu ... Ling Yuan Neng
Ling Chiang ... Yun Ling
Ti Hua Ko ... Teddy girl
Chih-Ching Yang ... Hsin Tsan-kuang
Ching Lin ... Mrs. Hsin
Tao Chiang ... Tso Liu
Lao Shen ... Lao Cheng
Dean Shek ... Shih Tien (as Shih Tien)
Director Chang Cheh brings a socially-conscious edge to his usual kung-fu bloodshed in The Generation Gap, another fine pairing of stars David Chiang and Di Lung! Ling Xi (David Chiang) is a rebellious youth whose liaison with underage girlfriend Cindy (Agnes Chan) is the spark which lights the eventual flame of his rebellion. Against the wishes of her parents, Ling Xi and Cindy move in together, and the two find a measure of bliss in their shared life. However, rumors circulate that Ling Xi is using Cindy as a means of financial support. After his brother Ling Zhao (Di Lung) returns Cindy to her parents, Ling Xi is branded an outcast. His anger only leads to spiraling bitterness, and finally employ in a triad gang which gives him the ability to release his frustration - which he does until the bitter end. Bloodshed and gritty kung-fu action coexist with a thoughtful, compelling screenplay in The Generation Gap, one of the more unusual, but no less worthy entries in Chang Cheh's stunning library of Shaw Brothers classics.

The Golden Sword 1969 DVDRip XviD
Director: Wei Lo
Cast: Pei-pei Cheng
Yuet Sang Chin
Siu Loi Chow
Li Jen Ho
Wen Chung Ku
Sau Kei Lee
Siu Ying Ma
Ai Lien Pan
Yuk Yi Yung
Lo Wei remains internationally famous for directing Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan’s first major movies. Cheng Pei-pei is now internationally famous for her superlative villainous role in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. But both were superstars in Hong Kong for decades prior, so any teaming of the superlative “swordswoman supreme” and the vaunted director/writer/actor is cause for celebration. Kao Yuen joins them as a noble swordsman, and watch, too, for award-winning actor Ku Feng as the “Frontier Terror” in the evocative and effective “Martial Art World” adventure.

The Jade And The Pearl 2010 DVDRip XviD - CoWRY
Shaw Brothers and Hong Kong's number one television network TVB collaborate for the third time for the period comedic romp The Jade and the Pearl. Co-produced with Emperor Entertainment, the Janet Chun (La Lingerie, La Comedie Humaine) comedy features an enormous cast of Emperor's and TVB's hottest young stars led by Raymond Lam, Charlene Choi, Wong Cho Lam, and Joey Yung. An extravagant fairy tale about destiny and true love transcending social boundaries, The Jade and the Pearl is both a hilarious adventure-comedy and a touching love story that's a crowd-pleasing good time at the movies.
Princess Yan (Charlene Choi) and General Cheng (Raymond Lam) first meet when one insults the other at a local matchmaking party. Soon after that, Cheng is assigned to escort the princess to get married to the prince of the Far Far Away nation. On the road, the two enemies grow to become friends and even fall in love. However, a group of bandits - led by San Niang (Joey Yung) - attack the convoy, and the two lovers are separated amidst the chaos. While San Niang kidnaps Cheng and falls in love with him in the process, a failing writer (Wong Cho Lam) takes in Yan after a nasty fall causes her to lose her memory.

Big Brother Cheng 1975 DVDRip x264 - [gx]
Chan Koon Tai returns in one of his signature roles in Big Brother Cheng, the hit sequel to the popular action-drama The Teahouse. Previously, Big Brother Cheng (Chan Koon Tai) had left his job as the just proprietor of the local teahouse, but before long his former comrades call him back! A variety of criminals threaten the daily lives of Big Brother Cheng's lower-class Hong Kong brothers and sisters, and it takes a man of Cheng's righteous determination to reclaim the streets for the common man! The citizens cheer for Cheng's tough and just ways, and when he saves the local police captain's life, he earns the cops' respect too. But such righteousness comes with a price. As Big Brother Cheng's legend grows, the cops can no longer ignore his vigilante ways. And with a number of revenge-seeking foes after him, Big Brother Cheng may be in for his toughest times yet!
Like The Teahouse, Big Brother Cheng fuses solid melodrama with social commentary and hard-hitting action. As the just Big Brother Cheng, Chan Koon Tai exudes the same presence and screen charisma that made him one Shaw Brothers studios' most popular kung-fu stars! A sizable hit in 1975, Big Brother Cheng is an affecting and entertaining film, and one of the defining Shaw Brothers movies of the seventies!

Thanks for what may be the best, most comprehensive collection of Shaw Brothers movies. I have been looking for a movie and cannot remember the name. I had thought it was a Venoms movie, but the few I have seen online are not the one I remember. There were 5 main characters, each training in one specific art similar to "Five Masters Of Death". I can remember that one would thrust his hands into a wok of hot stones to get "stone hands" or "iron fist". Another put ever increasing weights on his ankles to be able to jump in the end about 15 or 20 feet up (over the average wall of an enemy lol). A 3rd was making his legs invulnerable by kicking bamboo plants. I can't remember what the other 2 were doing (or even if there was another 2). It may be that there were only 3 guys, but it sure feels like 5. Keep in mind that the last time I saw this was probably when I was in high school over 30 years ago so remembering that much after all the brain cell destruction is a miracle.
So I am going to watch every one of these (at considerable use of time and energy) to try and find it. If it wasn't a Shaw Brothers "joint", I am in BIG trouble. If ANYONE knows the movie I am talking about, could you PLEASE shoot me a message.
What a monumental effort to put this together and I am in awe of such a feat.
