A "lady-knight" in the guise of a servant (played by Cheng Pei-Pei) is forced out of retirement by an aspiring female disciple bent on revenge in this Shaw Brothers swordplay film. The well-formed plot allows master and pupil to discuss the virtues of their mission, not only the man they both hate or (spoiler alert) love. A key influence on the Bechdel test-passing Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
