Snake in the Eagle's Shadow is a 1978 Hong Kong martial arts film starring Jackie Chan in an early role as Chien Fu, an orphan adopted by an abusive kung-fu school. One day, he meets another outsider. An old beggar named Pai Chang-tien (Yuen Siu Tien) wanders the streets, hungry and sore. Young Chien Fu offers Pai Chang-tien a place to sleep and something to eat. The old man sees how abused and unhappy the young kung-fu student is, so he reveals his secret—he's the lone surviving member of a powerful school of kung-fu called Snake-style. He teaches Chien Fu the elaborate footwork that makes the Snake-style so difficult to defeat. Together, the two martial artists will have to defeat hordes of enemies that seek to eradicate all practitioners of Snake-style, and Chang-tien will have to use his youth and wits to create his own, unpredictable form that no one can match. Snake in the Eagle's Shadow is directed by Yuen Woo-ping who would go on to gain international fame as the action choreographer for films like The Matrix, Kill Bill, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.moreless
