The Man from Hong Kong, 1975
Thought of as “Australia’s first martial arts movie”, Brian Trenchard-Smith’s highly energetic 1975 action flick follows Inspector Fang Sing Leng (Yu Wang) as he travels to Australia to extradite a drug dealer. When the hood is assassinated on his way to court, everyone suspects Jack Wilton (one-time Bond, George Lazenby), a crime lord who the local police haven't been able to pick up

Writer-director Brian Trenchard-Smith’s reputation as a popular entertainer who puts the money on the screen was firmly established with this film, his debut feature and the first of more than 40 films. Trenchard-Smith would go on to make such seminal films as Turkey Shoot, Dead End Drive-In and BMX Bandits, each of which has been rereleased in recent years in Australia and elsewhere.
