Claire Bloom co-starred in C.S. Lewis through the Shadowlands, a well-crafted intellectual love story based upon a true story*. At the time of the above-linked pic she was starring in a dance-intensive theatre show, or so I read.

Hilda Liu (or Lau) Hao-Yi starred not only in Cute Foster Sister and several other martial arts-based movies, but early in her career teamed with Angelo Mao Ying in Dragon Connection for a good rescue scene**. They rescue the good guy - who has been being tortured in a dungeon - and off the baddies.


Worthy television and cinema.


(edit) *This is the BBC version of the tale with Joss Ackland which won two British Academy Awards and an International Emmy. It is not the (imho much poorer) version of "Shadowlands" that starred Anthony Hopkins. You pays your money and you takes your choice.


**Alt. English title of Dragon Connection is Scorching Sun, Fierce Winds, Wild Fire. (/edit)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobbie_Phillips



Hey! Bobbie Phillips did more films than that! All you have to do is Google her name... For some reason the generic compilations always miss Ring of Fire III: Lion Strike (1995 dtv release), with Don Wilson. (Probably because imdb's cast list for that one neglects to mention her!?)
http://www.mattmovieguy.com/2011/02/ring-of-fire-iii-lion-strike-1995.html




Chameleon III: Dark Angel also features some of Bobbie Phillips' better on-screen action work, although it is currently only available (legally) in VHS format.

It appears that as Talon in Crow: Stairway to Heaven she did most all of her own martial arts stunt work except for the one jump roundhouse kick in the garage fight scene. I am not sure who the stunt player there is.

Marjean Holden - intelligence, grace, darn good moves for a taller person, glad she's into motivational speaking: http://images.mitrasites.com/wallpaper/marjean-holden.html
Gotta love the removable high heels and "Nintendo" putdown in Ballistic...

Speaking of "mitra", here's Rhona Mitra in Doomsday. Her character is about to kick some giant-in-armor-with-a-large-weapon's ass.

IIRC her line before doing this is "Bullocks!"


Sandra Bullock in her breakout Hollywood role in Demolition Man. Sylvester Stallone liked to call her fight scene stunt work in this movie "vicious ballet". Well, she was pretty good at it.

Jodie Foster and Denise Richards have been practiced kickboxers for awhile now.

Jodie Foster's imdb page: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000149/


Scott Baio, who co-starred with her in Bugsy Malone (1976) complained in print a bit about her kicking people around off the set... Be that as it may or may not have been, Jodie Foster still looked pretty fierce and very fit in The Brave One just a few years ago.

Denise Richards' imdb page:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000612/


Denise Richards has been kicking it out since at least her guest role on One West Waikiki (first aired in 1995). More recently she showed off some pretty good moves in Undercover Brother (2002).

Speaking of long-legged high kickers in action roles, Ha Kwong Li (Hsia Kwan-Li) was one of the best:

for some reason the hkmdb page neglects to list Mob Busters among her filmography...

Here, though, is a good pic from The Leg Fighters (1980)

Katharine Hepburn was born in 1907. Very few women the world over got the right to vote in elections until after World War One (1914-18). (In the U.S.A., women's suffrage was adopted in 1920. However, in France, for example, it was not until 1944.)
