original Hong Kong/Chinese title: TIE GUAN YIN YONG PO BAO ZHA DANG
[Never Use a Broken Bandage to Hold an Adversary]

director: Lo Wei
starring: Lily Ho Tang Ching Shen Yi Lo Wei Fan Mei Sheng Cheung Kwong Chiu Ku Feng

        

Actor and sometimes-director Lo Wei (he made 60+ movies including Bruce Lee's BIG BOSS and FIST OF FURY) helms this female James Bond caper with chic, pop-art glee. The story deals with Interpol Agent 009 Ai Si (played by Lily Ho) on the trail of the relentless Bomb Gang, extorting money by exploding stores and airplanes. The boss of the bad guys is Xiang Xiang - nicknamed 'the Specialist' (Shen Yi) - who has gone undercover by taking over a nightclub run by her twin sister. But her true residence is a delightfully excessive underground lair designed in a candy-colored SPECTRE motif [see pic, above left]. Agent 009's partner Deng Lei gets captured by Xiang. But when she's unsuccessful at seducing him, Deng is thrown into a prison cell. Fortunately, Ai Si locates the headquarters and everything escalates into a very Bond-esque climax.

Lily Ho, born in 1947, began acting in her home country of Taiwan in the mid '60s, but she had relocated to Hong Kong by 1967. After numerous films in a relatively short time [including the masterpiece WATER MARGIN (1972)], Miss Ho retired from acting in 1975.
