Movie-A-Day #97: The Legend of Drunken Master (1994).

April 7, 2011

We’ve got a two-fer today! On this day in 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect in the United States, allowing the production and sale of beer and marking the beginning of the end of Prohibition in America. And today is also the 57th birthday of Jackie Chan. And in “The Legend of Drunken Master” booze and Jackie Chan collide for a classic bit of martial arts comedy. It’s actually a sequel to an earlier movie, “Drunken Master,” one of Chan’s earliest hits and based on the life of historic kung fu master Wong Fei-Hung. The ’90s movie is easier to find here in the States, but they are both worth watching.
