Is any of you have this movie at home? I have a problem. I watched it yesterday and to be honest I am puzzled.

The Database includes Lam Ching Ying and Wu Ma as uncredited actors in that movie (as well as Yuen King Tan, who is REALLY having a role in this movie) but the other two actors', LCY and Wu Ma's scene is from the "original" Swordsman movie. In this case Sam Hui should be added as uncredited as well, cause that scene is completely copied into the opening scene of this movie.

What do you think? Are they really in that movie or not? Is this movie count at all as a Filmography piece?

OR I MISSED A SCENE??? scared2

I would like to ask your help if you own this movie!

Thanks a lot! thanks

I'm not sure as I've only seen this once a long while ago, but I think he is only in the re-caps.

Yes, that is exactly what I am talking about.

But the Hong Kong Movie Database keeps it as a "separate" role. girlpardon

Cast
Brigitte Lin Ching-Hsia ... Invincible Asia
Joey Wong Cho-Yin .... Cici / Snow
Jean Wang Ching-Ying ... Dai
Yu Rong-Guang ... Officer Koo Cheung Fung
Lau Shun (1) ... Disguised Invincible Asia
Eddy Ko Hung ... Hon Ching (Fung's assistant)
Lee Ka-Ting ... General Tin Kai Wan
Kingdom Yuen King-Tan ... Brothel keeper [uncredited]
Wu Ma ... Flute player [uncredited]
Lam Ching-Ying (1) ... Zither player [uncredited]
Yen Shi-Kwan ... Master Wu [uncredited]

See Sam Hui is not listed even if he was in the recap too... weird...

I have The East is Red and will watch it this weekend to check. Can you post a picture of Sam Hui? I don't know the name but I might know the face.

I will post a screencap of Lam if I can see him.

I just finished watching East is Red and didn't see any sign of Lam Ching Ying anywhere. Given that the movie was made in the early 90s (I think) I doubt he would have been merely hiding in one of the large crowd shots.

There were some clips from the second Swordsman movie, but that was it.

The copy I watched was the Mei Ah release, but given how many different cuts are released for most movies in China, it is quite likely that in some version we do see Lam Ching Ying again, reprising his role from the first Swordsman movie.

The movie was "just ok" by the way...

I watched Swordsman II and The East is Red today.

The original music scene with Lam is recapped in Swordsman II.

I must have the same DVD version as Raoul, because mine begins with a condensed recap version of the final fight (minus Jet Li) in Swordsman II and does not contain any recap of the Lam music scene.

While it's possible that my DVD version cut the music scene and replaced it with the condensed fight scene, that wouldn't make much sense in the larger scheme of The East is Red. (Not that The East is Red has much of a scheme - it is pretty dumb compared to the first two Swordsman films.)

Katalin, I wonder if the Database that you refer to could possibly be referring to Swordsman II?

I can guarantee the version Katie and I saw saw here in America had Lam in the beginning...

It started with Lam sitting in a boat singing... seemed to be a rehash of the scenes from swordsman I.



This is the version we saw...

Oh, I completely believe there are at least two versions out there. It's weird and frustrating but there it is.

So Katalin, now how do you determine whether Lam is "officially" in The East is Red? I suppose your Lam filmography can include this interesting side-note about the two versions.
