Mao tou ying / The Legend of the Owl (1981) DVD5
The film begins at a yearly secret auction held by mysterious master criminal The Owl, at which he sells slaves, art and valuable objects from around the world (including the Mona Lisa, which is dismissed as being ‘nothing special’). After being challenged by a customer to kidnap and sell the Emperor’s favourite 36th concubine at his next event, The Owl promptly has the poor woman grabbed. When one of the Emperor’s trusted royal guards dies trying to get her back, the task is passed to his son Fan (David Chiang), who teams up with his father’s friends Hsiao Li (Barry Chan) and Shark (Eric Tsang) to rescue her before she can be sold.
