sting of the superspy

Found these lobbycards on Ebay sometime ago for what looks to be a swinging spy flick starring a young Josephine Siao Fong-Fong (Fong Sai Yuk), Wu Fung (who was a leading man, not that I knew from the goofy cameos I came to know him from in the HK stuff I started watching in the late 80s) and Roy Chiao Hung (A Touch of Zen and Enter The Fat Dragon).

From 1967, Operation Blue Wasp aka The Blue Bees!

pages and pages of Category III

Slow on posting this as Grady over at Kaiju Shakedown got the news earlier, but coming soon from pal of Kung Fu Fridays, Julien Seveon, is his long awaited book, "Category III, sexe, sang et politique à Hong Kong" (Category III : sex, blood and politics in Hong Kong). Can't wait for this one - hardcover, 330 pages, with analysis and interviews with many leading figures including Simon Yam, Billy Tang, Herman Yau, Hsu Chi. Plus its loaded with hundreds of rare and never before seen photos/ lobby cards/ posters, many of which come from the collection of yours truly! Hope to get more information on how it can be ordered online! Meanwhile, here is the link for the French publisher.
