Come Drink With Me 

When: Thu., May 23, 7:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $5-$7
Hong Kong film titans the Shaw Brothers pumped out an amazing string of kung ku films in the 1960s and '70s, many of which were distributed in America. King Hu (widely regarded as the king of high-octane martial arts directors) broke into the business with the Shaws as an actor and writer. His first job as a director was Come Drink With Me, one of the best of the genre. Cheng Pei-Pei stars as the Golden Swallow, a double-fisted swordswoman whose brother is captured by a bandit gang led by the villainous Jade Faced Tiger (the great Chen Hung-lieh). Golden Swallow cuts her way through the gang to rescue her brother, and gets some unlooked-for help from a mysterious beggar. A lovingly restored edition of the film screens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 23, at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; as part of the Webster Film Series. Tickets are $5 to $7.
