The Shaw Brothers studio convened three of its directors to contribute a blade-wielding triptych. In Feng’s The Iron Bow, a sword-in-the-stone scenario doesn’t go exactly as planned for Yueh Hua , so far-from-helpless damsel Shih Szu steps/jumps in; Kang’s The Tigress sees a brothel’s employees rise up in solidarity against criminal Lo Lieh; and Cheh’s White Water Strand pits two of his favorite actors, Ti Lung and David Chiang, in an uprising against Ku Feng.
