Jackie Chan: Drunken Master (1978)

In the same year Snake in the Eagle's Shadow was released, Jackie Chan had an even bigger box office hit in Drunken Master, a semi-sequel with the same director and screen Sifu. In this clip, Jackie demonstrates exceptional dexterity and comedic action in a fight with a stick wielding kung fu master.

On a martial arts note, though Jackie was playing Wong Fei Hung, a Hung Gar master, the kung fu shown in this and the previous post, whether 'Snake' or 'Drunken' kung fu were said to be synthesized from various martial arts, more Northern than Southern. This makes sense as both Jackie Chan and the director Yuen Woo Ping are both graduates of the Peking Opera School.
