| Good first movie of the legendary Black Rose.
This is Hong Kong's answer to Robin Hood, featuring a masked cat burglar who steals from the corrupted rich and gives to the poor. Here, Chan sisters Chan Meiling (Hong Nan) and Chan Meiyu (Connie Chan) are respected women in Hong Kong's high society. However, they both share an alter-ego called the Black Rose, the notorious cat burglar who dress in black leotards and steal from the rich to give to the poor. Because of the tension they've created, an insurance detective (Yin Tse) investigates.

Filmed in the 1960s, it is a black and white film with a steady-pace and calm and theatrical-like dialog. However, the movie is full of suspense and the acting is actually very good, creating a very entertaining feature. It's great to see some action scenes done by the Black Rose when she took down a bunch of hoodlums and all the generating tension the plot created, from the appearances of the town-fearing Black Rose to the corrupted Lee Nam-hin (Peng-Fei Li).

It's a good film featuring the Black Rose and its iconic Hong Kong cinema status spawned sequels in the 1960s and throughout the 1990s.

Grade B+
