"Iron Bodyguard" (1973)
(Synopsis): The collaboration of director Chang Cheh and action star Chen Kuan Tai proved to be one of the most enduring of kung fu’s golden age, and nowhere were the two more inventive than when journeying back to the era when the Ching Dynasty fell and the Chinese Republic was born. Following their landmark successes “Boxer From Shantung” and “Man of Iron” came this powerful, exciting tale of a patriot committed to ending the corruption of the Ching rulers.
(Overview): When legendary swordsman Wang Wu challenges the authority on a blanket arrest of men when really only one is guilty, his intervention (and its success) is observed by politician Tan Tzutung who tries to buy him a drink but is rebuffed. Later, Wang is attacked while getting his hair braided and Tan assists him, making them friends and allowing them to talk. Tan is a reformer but there are moves against such men and Wang knows it. He enlists Wang's help but within the world of politics nothing is to be trusted and soon the friends are in great danger in the name of their reforming efforts.
