The Hong Kong action film Lady Reporter also known as Blonde Fury starring Cynthia Rothrock is getting a remastered Blu-ray release from Eureka in the UK.
Cynthia Rothrock’s first leading role was also the first (and to this day, the only) time a Western actress had lead billing in a Hong Kong film.
Rothrock plays Cindy, the titular female reporter sent to investigate an unscrupulous newspaper editor (Ronny Yu). Teaming up with Elizabeth Lee, the two go up against opponents played by some of the greatest “bad guy” actors in 80s cinema, including Billy Chow, Jeff Falcon, and Vincent Lyn.
