This delightful romance story tells the story of three doctors pursuing three beauties who play hard-to-get in the "a-go-go" era of the 70s. Danny Lee was just at the beginning of his extraordinarily diverse career when he led Liu Lu-hua and Liu Shang-chien on a challenging but ever-comical pursuit of the lovely Hsiao Yao, sexy Niu Niu and sweet Chen Szu-chia. This bright, entertaining film proves the old adage of "no pain, no gain".
It's back to the Shaolin Monastery for one of the most unusual action-packed tales to invade its hallowed halls. Lo Lieh is the ringleader of the Snake Sect, intent on reviving a particularly deadly faction known as the "Five Poison Web" (which is also THE WEB OF DEATH's Chinese title). To achieve his ends, he has an affair with the sexy ringleader of the Scorpion Sect, Angela Yu Chien. But there is also the Centipede Sect to contend with, as well as other assorted martial artists, among them such top Shaw Brothers talents as Yueh Hua, Ching Li, and Lily Li. Under the fluid direction of Chu Yuan and action choreographers Tang Chia and Yuen Cheung-yan (member of the martial arts world's esteemed Yuen Family and brother of Matrix master Yuen Woo-ping), THE WEB OF DEATH goes places where no other Shaolin kung-fu movie has gone before or since.
The retelling of China's most popular romance story became the fourth highest box-office in 1969. Superstar Ivy Ling Po plays a Don Juan scholar who tries to seduce a sprite-like servant, played by "Baby Movie Queen" Li Ching, known as the youngest star ever to be crowned Best Actress.
