My Young Auntie, also known as 長輩, Fangs Of The Tigress and Lady Kung Fu Fangs of The Tigress is a 1981 Hong Kong action film from the Shaw Brothers studio. The film is directed by Lau Kar Leung and stars Kara Hui, Hsiao Ho, Wang Lung Wei, and Gordon Liu. In a change from Lau Kar Leung's more serious martial arts films, My Young Auntie is a generally lighthearted kung-fu comedy. Lau Kar Leung again cast Kara Hui in the later Lady Is the Boss, which revisited similar themes. Kara Hui won Best Actress at the first Hong Kong Film Awards for her performance in this film.

(Synopsis): Cheng (Kara Hui Ying Hung), a beautiful martial arts ace, battles to keep her inheritance from the ruthless Yun Wei (Johnny Wang Lung Wei), but her efforts are sabotaged by Yu Tao (Hsaio Ho), her wayward and irrepressible great-nephew. Following a frenzy of spectacular comic mishaps, the hapless duo are setup and imprisoned and the deeds to Cheng's estate are stolen. She is held hostage after a doomed attempt to reclaim the papers back from Yu Wei's place, and the stage is set for a savage fight to the death.
