Plot Synopsis:

ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA is a grandiose, epic retelling of the adventures of Ching Dynasty folk hero Wong Fei Hung, whose legendary mastery of a variety of kung fu styles and resistance to Westernization have made him the subject of dime novels and popular lore in China since the 1930s. The subject of a slew of films, Wong Fei-Hung's popularity declined in the 1980s in favor of "Americanized" western-style gunslingers, making this film a throwback of sorts, with a strong pro-unification political subtext, plus plenty of brilliant martial arts action.

Production Notes:

  • Born in Lingnan, Canton, in 1847, Wong Fei Hung is one of southern China's most popular folk heroes. He was a master of the Hung Kuen (or Hung Gar) style of fighting, and he inherited an herbal medicine clinic from his father. One of his students actually was a pork butcher named Lam Sai-Wing. Wong died in 1924. No pictures exist of Wong.
  • The title of the theme song in ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA tranlates as "A man should support himself."
  • Nearly 300 shots were used for the bamboo ladder fight sequence alone.
