New Beverly in LA is featuring TWO Chang Cheh one-armed hits this week with THE ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN and THE NEW ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN Sept. 16 & 17, 2015.
THE ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN (1967) 7:30pm
Starring Jimmy Wang Yu, Angela Pan / Directed by Chang Cheh
After losing his arm from one the strangest occurrences ever, disgraced Fang Kang (Jimmy Wang Yu) escapes and is nursed to health by a local village girl. In the meantime, local warlords are killing off his former master’s clan. After vowing a life of peace, will he be able to sit idly by while his former master is viciously attacked? (It’s a Chang Cheh movie, so you should know the answer) This is the film that rocketed Jimmy Wang Yu to fame, and is considered a wuxia classic.
THE NEW ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN (1971) 9:50pm
Starring David Chiang, Ti Lung, Lee Ching and Ku Feng / Directed by Chang Cheh
The original reboot before reboots were all the rage! This time Chang Cheh infuses his classic story with a new crop of stars, including David Chiang as the NEW eponymous hero.
