Jason goes to CAAMFest--Day 5

Just one film on Monday the 14th, but it was the Shaw Brothers classic, COME DRINK WITH ME. A wuxia (martial arts) classic with heroes, sword-fights, kung-fu, poison darts, drunken masters, and lots of fighting. The Shaw Bros practically created the genre as we know it today, probably most familiar to modern audiences from CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON. And in fact, Pei-Pei Chang, who plays the elder Jade Fox, in that film, had one of her first starring roles in COME DRINK WITH ME as the heroine Golden Swallow. And, in fact, she was there to introduce the screening and talk a little bit about it before all the fun. Pretty freaking cool!

Running Time: 90 minutes
My Total Minutes: 479,165
