There is a clip (possibly a teaser or a deleted scene) in which Wong Fei-Hung (Jackie Chan) demonstrates drunken boxing on the front lawn of Beggar So's home. The latter calls instructions throughout, with characters subsequently appearing on-screen. It appeared in the documentary "Cinema of Vengeance" and later as a "deleted scene" on some home video releases. A photograph from this (Fei-Hung with his leg raised, holding both a tea cup and wine jar) is commonly used in various artworks. See more »
The bench placed under Fei-Hung as he performs the horse stance temporarily disappears when his father walks towards him. See more »
Some Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin) versions have a running time of 110 minutes, whilst others are at approximately 95. With exception to a handful of home video releases, such gaps have often been filled with another language/dub, and/or removed. See more »
This is my favourite jackie chan film. It's one of the funniest films i've ever seen. It starts with a fight and ends with one,so the action crowd won't be disappointed! Plus it contains the funniest scenes chan has ever put on film,such as the taunting of his idiotic teacher and the horror of realising the woman who he picks a fight with is his auntie!Brilliant.
