About This Book

From the glory days of Hong Kong action cinema, Reel East presents The Lost Fists Collection. We celebrate the unsung legacy of the other kung fu heroes who fought in the shadow of Bruce Lee and Wang Yu.

‘Bandits from Shantung’ stars Taiwanese action ace Chang Yi, a truly underrated star of swordplay and kung fu cinema. A small town is overtaken by the eponymous bandits and a lone hero, Chang Yi’s Yan, must fight to free it. One of the film’s stand out set pieces is a kung fu slugfest between Chang Yi and Sammo Hung, who also choreographed the movie. Though set in ancient China, ‘Bandits from Shantung’ was shot on location in Korea.

‘Bandits from Shantung’ was one of the earliest VHS releases of a Golden Harvest film, meaning that kung fu fans saw Chang Yi in action before they saw Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee’s other successors.

Reel East is proud to share this rare 12 lobbycard set, printed by Golden Harvest to promote the original theatrical release of the film.
