Vintage Movie Wallpaper of the Day

One of the best wuxia films and certainly more accessible from the mid to late 60’s period of Shaw Brothers films. King Hu certainly lifts a fairly routine plot into something great with Cheng Pei-pei in top form as a soft beauty that kicks all kinds of ass when pushed to far.
The strong and more graphic fighting so often attributed to Shaw Brothers titles doesn’t really show up until 1967 with The One-Armed Swordsman. After that it really takes the early 70’s to get going.
