The Tales of Golden Arm

Action star and still-active martial artist Lo Meng was a member of a group of martial artists called Venom Mob, whose members also acted in Hong Kong kung fu films.  They rose to cult status, both the films and the actors. Lo Men is still an actor, largely in comedy, but retains all of his martial arts skills and physique. He choreographs action scenes for such films as the interesting biographic pic,  Ip Man.  

Besides the golden armed kid in The Kid with the Golden Arm,  Lo Mang’s most famous role was Toad in 1978’s Five Deadly Venoms. These are the films that I enjoyed on the old  television series Kung Fu Theater, along with Return Of the 5 Deadly Venoms , Five Element Ninjas, and Ten Tigers from Kwangtung.  Look for reruns on your local or cable stations, or enjoy them on DVD. made in the 1970s – 1980s, they are still good entertainment.
