The Prodigal Son
DIRECTOR: SAMMO HUNG
CAST: SAMMO HUNG, YUEN BIAO, LAM CHING-YING
This early masterpiece by Sammo Hung is the last period kung fu film he directed at Golden Harvest. Spoiled brat Yuen Biao comes up against true martial arts master Lam Ching-ying, and begs to become his student. Lam's not having it, and a series of savage throat locks ensue. This movie is a ferocious tribute to Lam Ching-ying, Bruce Lee’s stunt double and an iconic martial arts star in his own right, who would die at age 44.
