Also known as Fangs of the Cobra (1977), this is a lite contemporary romance adventure from Shaw Brothers studio, not the usual costume martial arts for which they are best known. Young man returns from studying abroad to take over management of the large family farm, and falls for the daughter of a tenant farmer. The unique twist is that her pet, best friend, confidante and protector is a cobra - but he hates snakes because his mother was bitten and killed by one when he was a child. The scheming cousin who wants to marry his money ends up naked quite a lot more than I expected, though without sufficient attributes for me to find it anything but surprising. There are conflicts, and some fighting, and some misunderstandings about people's motives, all pretty predictable except for the hero snake idea. Unique and startling in a few small ways, while remaining quite mediocre overall.
