Description:
3 tales of chivalry from the mighty Shaws

Part 1: "The Iron Bow" A mother-and-daughter kung fu team (played by Kao Pao Shu and Shih Szu) runs a teahouse. A local magistrate's wastrel son (Tien Ching) wants to marry the daughter, but the mother's late husband left a stipulation that only a man who could lift his heirloom, the Iron Bow, and shoot an arrow from it could marry the daughter. The magistrate's son tries but can't do it. A passing hero (Yueh Hua) can. This angers the magistrate's son and he sends in the troops for a couple of major brawls. The mother and daughter and their youthful helper, "Doggie," defend themselves.

Part 2: "The Tigress" A high-priced courtesan, Shih Chung Yu (Lily Ho), gets General Wang in trouble when his refusal to leave her side makes him defy an order from Minister Li. He's very nearly executed but Lily gets the minister to relent on the condition that she succeed in capturing marauding bandit Pang Xun (Lo Lieh), whose obsession with the courtesan himself is jeopardizing his own campaign to plunder and pillage the region. So Shih Chung Yu sets a contrived plan in motion, enlisting General Wang and her sister prostitutes to use trickery to subdue Pang Xun and his men without a major fight. Then we find out something that puts a poignant spin on things...

Part 3: "White Water Strand" This one's a sequel of sorts to THE WATER MARGIN (1972), based on the classic Chinese literary work, and focuses on the sons—and one daughter (Li Ching)—of the famed bandits of Liang Shan Mountain. It opens with the group freeing one of their number (Ti Lung) from government custody— one of those box wagon contraptions they use to carry a prisoner on the road in these films. A passing hero (David Chiang) intervenes to help the guards and then decides he'd rather help the Liang Shan crew. This gets him into trouble with a government man (Ku Feng) who then imprisons him and sets an execution date. The Liang Shan heroes prepare to effect a rescue... The cast of this segment also includes Chen Sing, Wang Chung, Billy Tang, Cheng Lei, and Yang Tze (aka Bolo Yeung).
