The story was simple, thus gave the movie an opportunity to have as many fight scenes as possible. A shipping company led by Yang was given an order to ship chests of gold. A gang of 4 bandits: Golden Arm, Silver Spear, Steel Robe and Brass Head; were after the gold. Yang hired more guards: Swordsman Li and his girlfriend Miss Leng, duo Short Axe - Long Axe, and wine-lover Hai To. It was easy to guess, that there were troubles on the way. Like all Shaw Brothers movies, this one also ended with a happy ending: means all bad guys dead and the good guys win.
|Golden Arm. His hands are his best weapon. Bandit no.1|
His costume is actually similar to what's used in wayang orang
|Silver Spear. Bandit no.2|
Iron Robe - bandit no.3 (left) and Brass Head - bandit no.4 (right). I remember Iron Robe because of his unique costume. He also carries a steel fan. In wuxia books, fan as a weapon is described being made of steel; not paper like Ti Lung or Cheng Shao-ciu usually carry.
Left: Iron Feet, a dangerous opponent who also sets eyes on the gold. Right: Imperial agent Hai To, well played by Philip Kwok. Hai To is the main hero. Hai To saves Li's life after being hit with a poisonous sand palm.
Left : Miss Leng. I think her blue costume is beautiful. Right : Swordsman Li. Li is handsome, but cold and arrogant. My impression is that he is a very skilled swordsman because to reach such a level he must pay attention to his swordplay and ignore others, including his poor girlfriend. Probably he is based on Gu Long's Sebun Jui-soat or Yap Koh-seng. He dresses all in white.
|I didn't remember the story, but I remember this costume.|
