Shaw Brothers Cinema: The Master Killer & Company

Gordon Liu and Yuko Mizuno during promotion for HEROES OF THE EAST (1978).

It's been a long time since there was a Shaw Brothers Behind the Scenes entry that was specifically random photos, pictorials and promotional materials. This one here gives a taste of a future Gordon Liu Chia Hui retrospective in addition to some photos of Ti Lung, Fu Sheng and a look at a Shaw production that never got released to DVD.

A legend is born! Liu Chia Liang cuts Gordon Liu's locks for the role that would make being bald beautifully badass.

Wang Feng (EMPEROR CHIEN LUNG, the unreleased to DVD thriller THE LAST JUDGMENT) directed this drama feature which appears to have some comical moments. It began as THE DIVINER'S STORY before morphing into LEGEND OF FENG HSIU. This is a spread from November of 1977 from Hong Kong Movie News.

And here's the movie poster advertising from the back cover of the March 1979 issue of Southern Screen. It was also featured on the back cover of the June 1979 issue which I assume is the actual month the film was released to theaters. It was among many Shaw pictures that didn't make it onto DVD.
