DIRTY HO (Martial Arts Matinee), co-presented by Soja Martial Arts
A Qing Dynasty prince (Gordon Liu) masquerading as a jewelry dealer thwarts assassination attempts using subtle kung fu skills while duping a petty con artist (Wong Yue) into becoming his pupil in this highly entertaining kung fu comedy from Shaw Brothers and action director Lau Kar-leung. DIRTY HO is loaded with comically absurd and authentic kung fu action ranging from faux crippled masters and a gang of social misfits tangling with Wong Yue for laughs to assassins played by potent screen villains Johnny Wang Lung-wei, Wilson Tong and Lo Lieh all dishing out deadly fighting moves in highly coordinated assaults against Gordon Liu.
The Martial Arts Matinee is co-presented by Soja Martial Arts, our neighbor on 24th Street. For more information about Soja, please check out: http://www.sojamartialarts.com/#
