When i first starting watching Kung Fu/Martial Art movies, it was the company Golden Harvest that first grabbed my attention. They delivered high tempo movies with some of the best stars around which included Bruce Lee, Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao, Angela Mao and many more. This company played a major role in becoming the first Chinese film company to successfully enter the western market for an extended period of time, especially with the films of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. At the same time, it dominated HK box office sales from the 1970s to 1980s.

This is a run down year by year of my favorite Golden Harvest movies from the 80′s, i hope you enjoy my list. – King Of Kung Fu
