Golden Harvest's International Epic!! A Queen's Ransom.
A Queen's Ransom (1976) was a strange film that came out of Golden Harvest. This would be one of the first attempts by Rayomnd Chow to make international films. A QUEEN'S RANSOM features some of the company's brightest stars (Jimmy Wang Yu Angela Mao, Dean Shek, Sammo Hung, Bolo Yeung) and a big international star (George Lazenby).
A group of international terrorists are trying to ransom the Hong Kong and English government. They won't kill the Queen if they receive a huge amount of ransom money. An exiled South Asian Princess (Angela Mao) is also thrown into the mix. She befriends a local kid (Dean Shek). The terrorists (George Lazenby, Jimmy Yu, Sammo Hung and Bolo Yeung) are under the watchful eye of the local H.K.P.D. What will happen next? Can the police stop these terrorists? Will the Queen be safe? Can the lonely Princess find true love? Is this movie filled with a lot of Kung-Fu and ultra violence? How rare is this movie? To find the answers to these questions you'll have to track down a copy of this impossible to find action film from Golden Harvest.
A wild and entertaining film that aims to please (and it does). Will they ever re-release this movie on D.V.D.?
