Come Drink with Me
DIRECTOR: KING HU
CAST: PEI-PEI CHENG, HUA YUEH, HUNG LIEH CHEN
Pioneer Hu revolutionized wuxia films with cinematography reminiscent of Chinese painting, kinetic camera moves, innovative action choreography, and meticulous period production design, all melded into female-forward fist-and-sword tales. Breakthrough Come Drink with Me put vibrant 19-year-old dancer-cum-actress Cheng Pei Pei on the action film map as Golden Swallow, a general’s daughter tasked with rescuing her brother from the clutches of bandits, managing to take on all opponents with several breathtaking bounds, as one of cinema’s greatest personifications of the martial arts.
