various characters converge on a remote town to find a particular teenage girl and her adolescent brother, whom we eventually learn are the only children of the dying Emperor, born to a palace maid who was cast out of the court. Various court figures are out to find them, either to restore them to the palace or to kill them so that the dastardly Prince Jie (Tung Lin) can ascend to the throne. Zhu Pao (Wang Hsieh), a henchman of Prince Jie, kills the Imperial envoy and takes his place. An officer disguised as a beggar (Chin Han) is a key figure although it takes a while before we learn his motive. A sharp-eyed constable (Fan Mei-sheng) recognizes the real villain and is thrown in prison as a result, but is later rescued and becomes an ally of the heroes.
A masked hero known as the Swift Knight (Lo Lieh) intervenes at key points, motivated only by a sense of justice. The unwitting Princess (Margaret Hsing Hui) is a passive figure in all of this and is constantly being taken by one party or another. Eventually she falls in love with her chief rescuer, but destiny awaits. Her eager-to-help brother is played by an eleven-year-old actress, Niu Niu.GD Star RatingThe Swift Knight (C-Movie) (HK-Movie) (1971),
