Come drink with me (1966) was directed by King Hu, whose fanciful Hong Kong/Taiwan costumed swordplay films from the 1960s and 70s are often cited as an inspiration for Ang Lee's hit of 2000, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. This film stars Golden Swallow Cheng Pei-pei who fights on behalf of the local governor (her father) against a group of rebel bandits, led by Jade-faced Tiger, who have kidnapped his son (her brother). She is aided in her adventures by a drunken wanderer called Drunken Knight (starring Yue Hua), who is equally good with a sword, and whose guise may be a cover for other activities… This renowned movie was recently screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, and also won lots of applause at film festivals at New York and Tokyo as well.
