The Prodigal Son (1981) or Bai Ga Jai is a “Kung fu Kung-fu movie about a spoiled youngster, Young Leong Tsan, who hates books and conventions but is obsessed by martial arts. His rich father dotes on him so much that handsome payments are awarded to people who manage to lose gracefully to his son, and Young Leong soon comes to think he is the best fighter in Canton.”

Note: The late Lam Ching-ying makes this movie truly memorable with his graceful use of Wing Chun throughout the film.
