1 Answer 1


You've posted a total of twelve images, including the gifs. For the sake of simplicity, let's call them all images and assume they're numbered 1-12 in the order that you posted them.

Image 1 is from The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978).

Images 2 and 3 are from The Magnificent Ruffians (1979).

Images 4, 5, 6, 10, 11 and 12, plus the backflip sequence in image 8, are from Mad Monkey Kung Fu (1979). The man in blue in those images isn't Jackie Chan; it's Chia-Liang Liu, also known as Lau Kar-leung. He starred alongside Jackie Chan in Drunken Master II (1994), also known as The Legend of Drunken Master.

Image 7 is from Lion vs. Lion (1981).

The man in the white T-shirt in images 8 and 9 is Jackie Chan in Snake Fist Fighter (1973), his first starring role.

Snake Fist Fighter is the only one of these that wasn't released by Shaw Brothers Studio.
