Wong Fei Hung & Ghost Foot Seven

Wong Fei Hung & Ghost Foot Seven (Kwan Tak-Hing)

Nobody played Wong Fei Hung better than the late Kwan Tak-Hing, wouldn’t you agree? Nobody. Nobody even comes close. And it does not matter that Kwan Sifu actually did not practiced Hung Ga Kyun, but (Tibetan) White Crane.

As we all know, Kwan Sifu played Wong Fei Hung in over 100 movies – first one was made in 1949, and the last one (with Kwan Tak-Hing as Wong Fei Hung) in 1981.

Super rare video! Mok Gwai Laan, Wong’s last wife, performs parts of Hung Ga Kyun’s “Taming of the Tiger in I pattern”, “Tiger and Crane” and Single Whip!

If true, she  would be 59 or 60 years old.  Continue reading
