Great Quote No. 3

“This convention (cross dressing performers) can be traced back to ‘Come Drink with Me’, and it reflects a Peking Opera sensibility, wherein men played female roles and the audience was expected to accept their impersonation without question” David West, p 118, ‘Chasing Dragons: An Introduction to the Martial Arts Film’

I am still plugging away at my blog about the choreography in Corey Yuen’s ‘My Father is a Hero’. Hope to post something soon.
