I would like to thank everyone who was able to make a donation for the purpose of obtaining new features for the forum. The donation goal was met rather quickly and we here at Kung Fu Fandom can not thank you enough for the support. The plan is once the new site is up and running, the focus will then turn to the forum on updating and adding these new features and we will continue to strive to make your time spent here on the forum as enjoyable as possible. _/|\_

Also like how a lot of these actors who you always assumed must be super fit and healthy often have a cigarette in their hand :)

Weird question but does anyone know when Jackie quit smoking?

Isn't it from Disciples of shaolin ?

I think it is, Fu Sheng is wearing the same clothes and also the set is the same when Fung Hark On ambushed him in it with that concealed sword.

Think nearly everyone smoked in the Hong Kong movie industry back then, not sure if its similar now?. Pollution was so bad in H.K, that smoking tasted better than the poor air quality. In Robert Clouses ETD book, he says you could smell the Island before you ven landed. Many pictures of choreographers and stunt guy's staging moves with cigarettes hanging from their mouths. Make you wonder how fit/fast they would have been, without the smoking?.

I remember after Jackie had become famous Lo Wei had inserted old behind the scenes footage of him choreographing a fight scene with a cigarette dangling from his lips into one of his films. Chan wrote about how pissed he was about it in the book Jackie Chan: My Life ln Action and how he had quit the filthy habit years earlier.

That wasn't Lo Wei - the film is 36 Crazy Fists.

Haha never seen that film before, is it any good? Still weird seeing Jackie absolutely shredded, not a pick of fat on him with a cigarette hanging out his mouth. Surely the great Yuen Biao didn't smoke?

When i first arrived in HK, a big eye opener was how so many people smoked and still do, actors, directors, stuntmen etc

In HK, China, Korea etc, smoking is still something of a social occasion, and cigarettes are still cheap compared to the west

there was also when i arrived cigarette advertising on TV< blatant advertising in moves,how many times have you seen Winston Cigarettes popping up in HK movies?  And then Marlbaro and other companies started sponsoring music and movies in the early 90's, Saviour of the Soul, Gameboy Kids etc feature some blatant cigarettes are cool moments!

Thanks for the correction, mistakenly remembered it being a Lo Wei film because Lo and Jackie had a bad falling out. It was unscrupulous producers of 36 Crazy Fists he said that inserted the behind the scenes footage just so they could claim he was in the film. Pretty shady...

This shot might have been taken at Chan Wai-Mans gym?, I wouldnt put money on that but its a possibility.

 

How many films did the pair appear in?, I can only think of Cold Blooded Murder and The Furiose Killer. Both movies being released in 1981.

Ti Lung looks cool in that Kung Fu pose from is it Opium and the Kungfu Master? Can't help but thinking Jim and Bob look like the odd couple in that photo.😄

Yuen Biao hanging out with Jackie, Frankie Chan and Anita Mui during the making of Drunken Master II. I wonder if he helped in any way...

I’d read somewhere once that Sammo Hung helped with some of The directing of Project A because of time restraints and Jackie had multiple duties,this might be one of the scenes.
