I read he was once married to Filipina actress Elizabeth Oropesa. They most likely met when he did a few films in over there. I believe they are no longer married.

His was born in 1951 in Taiwan

No idea his exact birthday date, I've looked through some Chinese websites and I couldn't find it.

Meng Fei is still active in TV and some local Taiwanese films until today.

If you read Chinese, you can find plenty of news about him.

Meng Fei and Pan Yin-Tze (the girl who cut Jimmy Wang Yu's hand in One Armed Swordsman) in November, 2007 during the red carpet event at the 42nd Taiwan TV Award event in Tai Pei.

Actually he doesn't look too bad for a 58 year old, he's got a babyface since the Shaw Brothers days anyway.

Thanks for posting the photo, I too have been looking for info and haven't found anything.

Not sure which films you already have, Alexandra, but eBay has some decently priced DVDs. Here is a link:

She is 64 this year, so you're correct she was 62 in that photo. She certainly looks like she still can pass for someone in her late 30s.

But hey, she doesn't earn the following titles for nothing (credit wikipedia)

-Said to be the Goldie Hawn of Asia due to their similarity of their ageless look.
-Almost always play roles of young, beautiful lady in most of her acting careers
-Nicked named as "Doll" (娃娃) or "Ageless Legend".[6]
-Co-starred with Mun Fei (a.k.a. Meng Fei) (孟飛) in a lot of show, people called them the "Perfect couple on screen". (Meng Fei has a baby face himself)
-1972 she married actor Chan Hung Lit (陳鴻烈) whom she co-star with in many films but divorced in 1980.
-She's dubbed as the "Queen of China TV" because of all of her TV appearances were shown dramatically on the China TV network during the golden age of the 1980s and 90s.

Pardon me if this is mis-information... I had heard Meng Fei died in the Phillipines a couple years ago. A Filipina woman I know told me, as she knew of his marriage to a Pinay .
Again, I apologise if this is incorrect. I do not want to spead false info...

Anyone know?

I guess the either Filipino woman you know got her information wrong, mixed him up with someone else or she was trying to be smart for no good.

As you can see Meng Fei is still well and alive, he was also in some tv shows last year.

Ok, I did some searching through the Taiwanese websites, plenty of news about Meng Fei and his activity these days. The man is still invited to many tv shows and has been enjoying his celebrity status and babyface looks.

Here's one article about him from January, 2009, in which he was talking about going to South Korea for some hair transplant, and talked about how he maintained his youthful look by doing exercise, etc. you get the point

He looks really good at 60.

http://www.nownews.com/2009/01/10/340-2393337.htm

There are hundreds of other articles about him in some tv shows from the last few months, but this is the one I found with photos, so no he didn't die a few years ago, he is still alive.

On the HKMDB, he is listed in the cast of 2008's " Kung Fu Hip Hop"
And that fabulous photo, thanks for posting it, is only two years old.
And thank you so much for at least the year of his birth. I have searched forever. Thank you. Meng Fei is a great performer, always been in my top ten favorites, and my god he looks super! (not sure about the hair yet though.........)
Thanks again for more information!!!!!!!!!

Meng Fei is not in Kung FU Hip Hop, there is another Meng Fei(2), but not ours. Chen Kuan Tai is in Kung Fu Hip Hop though!

Meng Fei was born in Canton China

I believe he was born in China to a Chinese father and an Italian mother. I've enjoyed him most in Five Shaolin Masters (Shaw Brothers) and Snake Crane Secret (Taiwanese production). A fine actor and kung fu performer.

Oh my friends! You are wonderful! All of you, sent information about my beloved Meng Fei! I'm glad to hear that he is well, doing some tv shows in Taiwan, or other countries, oh! and the information sent by "Wuxiawuxia" is fabulous! And the picture!

To "Wuxiawuxia": send the information in chinese, I have a group of colleagues in my University, specialized in the culture of China, that can read some of the information and maybe, we can have access to more information like the mysterious date of birth and other facts. Of course my colleagues are not available all the time, but I guess they can help in any way. Then I will tranlate on here.

To "MarsHarmony": thinking about his hair... think the same. "Ladies point of view".... :D

And agree with the consideration of Meng Fei as a good actor, performer and with the charisma (not speaking of his babyface) this "angel touch" that few actors get.

Thank you all and keep posting you make me happy!:D

The Meng Fei film catalog has very few good quality prints available, correct ratio aspect, semi-clean prints, but I would like to list the titles of his films that are in good shape.
"Prodigal Boxer"
"Young Tiger"
"Five Shaolin Masters"
"Snake Crane Secret" (on a double feature with "Eight Escorts")
"Boxers Adventure"

That is only 5 out of over 40 titles of his films that have been given the proper widescreen, at least semi clean, treatment.

Anyone know of some more good copies?????
I wish I could get them all in clean clear copies, I have many poor quality dvd's of his, just makes me want to see them right even more.!!!

I mentioned this in the "Ten Tigers From Kwantung" thread in the Shaw Bros. forum.
I was watching the trailer for "Enter the Whirlwind Boxer" a.k.a. "Prodigal Boxer 2", a.k.a. "Young Hero of Shaolin" (1975). Produced by South Sea Film Co. Hong Kong, it included a title card that said,
"Meng Fei, grandson of Tan San, Cantonese 5th Tiger, and the heir of Tsai-li-fu."

The closest character name from "Ten Tigers From Kwantung" that I can match was Yeung Hung (1) as 'Tieh Chow San'. The Ten Tigers live on. I think it is an amazing tidbit that ties life and cinema together, but it would be an outrageous statement to print on film if it is not true.

It was such a gift seeing this site with all the Meng Fei fans. I do like the guy a lot. I remember watching him in a movie as a teenager and I said, boy is good looking with his curled up Elvis type lips. He had an interesting look which I thought was different from the other asian kung fu actors. I only learnt later that he had a chinese father and an italian mother. That explains his good looks. Quite a decent actor too. He came from wealth even before he was in the movies. That explains that sophisticated presence he has about him.:smile:

Does anyone have any information on Fei's son Gabriel Yang??. That is the son he had when he was married to Elizabeth Oropesa

Hello
I don't found yet information about Gabriel Yang, but I transcribe here a interview with references to Elizabeth Oropesa, ex wife of Meng Fei that could be useful.
-------------------------------------------------
Manila, November 12, 2002 (STAR) By Miriam Garcia Desacada - For the first time, actress Elizabeth Oropesa says she’s married the man with whom she is truly in love.

"La Oropesa" met 23-year-old physical therapist Joel Valdez at a gym in Makati City where they both worked out. Brushing aside comments about their May-December relationship, they were married in a simple civil ceremony at a beach resort last Nov. 8.

"For the first time in my life, I am in love," Oropesa exclaimed.

The actress’ young son by former husband Meng Fei, a Chinese movie actor based in Taipei, and her mother, Flordeliza Freeman, attended the wedding, which was held at the Gala beach resort in Barangay Dacul in Taft, Eastern Samar, 250 kilometers east of this city.

It was Oropesa’s fifth marriage and a first for Valdez.

Valdez, a native of Taft, was described to have "movie-star looks." He appeared shy and could just say "thank you" to well-wishers.

Guests at the wedding said Oropesa looked much younger than her 48 years. She delighted the crowd when she gamely danced the "curacha" during the reception.

The principal sponsors included Rep. Marcelino Libanan, Pasay City Mayor Peewee Trinidad, hairdresser Fanny Serrano, Taft Mayor Francisco Adalim and Vice Mayor Cornelio Adel, as well as other known personalities in Eastern Samar.

Oropesa was already married, and a mother, when she joined the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant as her passport to the movies.

When she was already a movie actress, she was romantically linked to drama actor Dante Rivero and other men before she met Meng Fei and lived with him for several years.

They separated and Oropesa lived in with a certain Raymond Ablan. After they also separated, she reconciled with Meng and she stayed in Taipei for a few years.

After Oropesa and Meng parted ways again, she made a movie comeback in 1993 and became involved with younger men, including Ginoong Pilipinas titleholder and now bold actor Danny Ramos.

She was also married to a certain Mark Roces, with whom she has a daughter, Genevieve.
----------

Is hard to find details of private life of Meng Fei, I read an article in dutch but not information about his birthday or his relationship with Oropesa or other women, or his sons.

I really don't understand why Meng Fei is so reservated for his private life, and why he choose to stay shooting in little movies companies in Taiwan, and never go into Shaw Brothers machine of dreams. His birthdate is the most incredible secret, and accepting that he has all the rights to keep his private life in silence, in my opinion is a pain for the fans. To find pictures, movies remastered, magazines, interviews, or memorabilia, is worst that an archaological campaign! :smile:

Meng Fei did do a couple of Shaw Bros films, namely Five Shoalin Master (he was one of the five) and Magnificent Wanderers. When Chang Cheh returned back to Hong Kong from his 'exile' in Taiwan, I guess he preferred to take the Venoms back with him. Or maybe Meng Fei didn't like the conditions of the contract offered to him, if they offered to take him on at Shaws.

Oh, Kung Fu Samurai, please, please, forgive me, please, but Meng Fei isn't in "Magnificent Wanderers", it would have been way cool if he had been. (Fu Sheng, David Chiang, Chi Kuan Chun and Li I Min were the leads.)

09-27-2009, 08:42 PM
Thank you very much for the article Alexandra. I really think that Meng fei should not be so secretive. It is not just him though. If you look at the guys who were in the kung fu movies with him, you can't find anything on them either, like Don Wang Tao, Delon Tam or Tan Tao Liang, or John Lui or Tommy Lee or those guys.

I do know that Ti Ling has a home in Vancouver Canada, David Chiang as well. David Chiang got married to Lee Lam Lam who starred in several movies with our boy Meng Fei. She even gave birth to one of their children later in life.. He is much younger than his siblings.
I also know that David Chiang and Ti Lung are best buddies.

Meng Fie developed a friendship with Tan Tao Liang because they too starred in quite a few movies together.

Thank you so much for info to the forum. I read all about David Chiang and Ti Lung. Too bad too old friends became so disconnected. What a shame. Boy am I ever glad I stumbled upon this forum. I thought I was the only Meng Fei fan out there for a while. Glad to meet all of you.

I wish I was able to read chines so that I could check out the chinese news on him.

I don't know if you all noticed but Fei was almost always better looking than even his female costars. The man still looks really good for his age. Did someone say he is 60??!!!. I guess they mean 60 minus 16, ha ha h. Seriously, the man looks fine.:angel:

MarsHarmony
09-30-2009, 10:57 PM
You are correct, Fei still looks like he always has, full of life and enjoying it. That and his kung fu skills keep him as vital as ever. I love the films of his that I do have. I hate buying the horrible versions, full screen and ugly prints, blechh....

Anyway, the one movie that I can't get my paws on is Enter The Whirlwind Boxer. I would give my years paycheck to get that one. You guys got a clue or something?

That was the movie I watched on Meng When I visited the Caribbean. It was at the cinema. Up to this day, you can still go and see the old school kung fu at the Caribbean cinemas.

I fell in love with him in that movie, that is why it is so special to me. I went out and got all I could see on Fei after that movie

Help me where I can find that one if you can guys

Has Meng Fei ever played as a villain?

Ah that is a good question! :squigglemouth:
As far I know, and I saw few movies or part of them, Meng Fei played always the good boy. But is a good question for a research. I posted in the other message a picture of a tv drama, the crown seems more thailandese than taiwanese. Everyone knows the name of the drama?

Yes I too was smitten with Meng Fei when I was much younger. I saw a VHS in a store window, Prodigal Boxer, something about him. I became obsessed to see the movie. I eventually I saw it. And was very pleased I did.

He is great in all respects in my book. I especially like his comedy side he just bursts with good cheer. And those good looks. As a 1/2 Italian male I can appreciate where 1/2 of his looks came from.

No one has mentioned his martial arts skill in this thread or I missed it.

What is his martial background? Opera or a real martial arts background or like Beardy he picks things up quickly.

Hello
He had a splendid comedy side and his smile, as I use to say, is the second most astonishing on screen in all South East Asia screen. Concerning his half italian blood, for me is a blessing! :tongue:
He was trained in martial art skills, not opera as far I know. The style he learnt I guess was Hung Gar, but you can see him in the character of Fang Shih Yu, he fight with the fan with great versatility. I think in my opinion that the three actors whom hold the fan with elegance and fight with this weapon correctly (on screen) was him, Ti Lung and today Nicholas Tse.

I remember seeing Meng Fei for the 1st time in Five Shaolin Masters(1974) back in the mid-70's at Kim Sing theatre in Chinatown, L.A. on Figueroa...In fact, it was the 1st time I saw the whole Shaw Bros. gang : David Chiang; Ti Lung; Chi Kuan Chun; Fu Sheng. My Dad had taken me to see his 2nd favorite martial arts star [Chen Kuan Tai's Man Of Iron] which was running as a double bill with FSM; the late Bruce Lee was his favorite...We had stumbled onto the world of Shaw Bros' Shaolin epics by virtual accident. I was 9 yrs. old then. But I remember that Meng Fei's Fang Ta-Hung character the most from FSM. Director Chang Cheh really paired Mr. Fei with a perfect counterpart in screen villain Leung Kar Yan[we came to nickname him Evil Bruce Lee]. Fei's death in that climactic fight was what I remember the most from that initial viewing; I don't think anyone who saw FSM for the 1st time, and without knowing the history of the Fang Ta-Hung character, expected Mr. Fei to get killed at the end. Meng Fei was HIGHLY underrated as an actor and a movie star...But there are so many people out there that rank him second only to Bruce Lee as their FAVORITE martial arts star...I saw the YouTube interview...Seems like a very affable gentleman. Mr. Fei was born in 1951...As the late, great Alexander Fu Sheng was not only among the youngest of that whole Shaw Bros. clique, but also the 70's Asian martial arts cinema roster...Heroes, villains, supporting players, et al.

Welcome to another Kung Fu cinema fan, especially a Meng Fei fan!
Very nice write up here of your first Meng Fei viewing! And a Shaw double feature in Chinatown, how very cool indeed.
You saw a youtube interview? With Meng Fei? could you post the link here? That would be great!

I saw the Meng Fei game-interview with his 2 sons and spouse from the URL provided right here on an earlier post...

My father was actually involved in film distribution of HK martial arts films of Goldig Film Studios (whose president was Alex Guow) to India from '77-'83. He actually met some HK martial arts alumni in person : Steve Chan; Fung Yi [Bruce Lee's portly, bespectacled Japanese nemesis from Fists Of Fury]; John Liu [who co-starred with Meng Fei]; etc...

He never met any Shaw Bros. alumni though...Dad only dealt with Goldig Films of HK and Mr. Alex Guow & Guow Hiap Hoo. A couple of the films Dad help distribute to India to get passed by NFDC (Natl. Film Distr. Corp.) were :

The Best Of Shaolin Kung Fu [aka 18 Golden Men]--with Koo Lung [aka Cliff Lok] & Huang Chia Ta [aka Carter Wong] as the supervillain.

The Godfather's Kung Fu Family [aka The Last Challenge]--with Shih Kien [Han of Enter The Dragon]; Yeung Tze [Bolo of Enter The Dragon]; Tino Wong Cheung; and Steve Chan[also the film's director]. This movie was a martial arts remake of Coppola's screen adaptation of The Godfather(1972).

I myself went to Sensei Bill Ryusaki's Lankersheim Dojo back as a grade-schooler in 1975-76. I also knew the Prince of Kata, Mr. Eric Lee. He was friends with Dad and once took me and my little sister roller-skating. Mr. Lee also came to my elementary school--Colfax Avenue--in North Hollywood to give a live demonstration to my class.

I met in person Master Bong Soo Han in 1979 at a private screening of Kill The Golden Goose which starred Bong Soo Han & Grandmaster Ed Parker [he played the heavy]. My Dad had been invited to that private screening and took me along. By then, I was a teenager.

The last time I attended a martial arts school was in '79. It was Master Yong Kim's school of the WTKDF [World Tae Kwon Do Federation] directly across the street from the campus of LACC [L.A. City College]...I never made it to brown belt, though...

Lot's of childhood memories...In retrospect, I was very lucky to have experienced the whole martial arts craze of the 1970's and early '80's...Wouldn't have traded it in for the world.

04-27-2010, 04:13 PM
As for Meng Fei playing a villain :

I do remember seeing him in one sword-fighting film where he was a special guest star, I believe, and he had a black patch over one eye...Cannot remember the title as I saw it only once back in the late '70's at Kim Sing theatre in CT L.A. ...

He was most definitely the villain and I remember he was actually VERY effective in it...

I couldn't believe it was him, at first...Unfortunately, I NEVER saw that flick again...Not even in the TV re-runs of the '80's to make a positive identification that it was indeed Meng Fei playing that villainous, guest starring role...

Also, I remember reading somewhere online that Mr. Meng Fei was a direct descendant from his paternal line of one of the real-life, anti-Ching heroes known in history as the Ten Tigers of Kwantung. Can anyone please help find the online source or verify if this is true...?

Incidentally, I too, as many others, agree that Five Shaolin Masters(1974) is probably one of the greatest of all martial arts films ever...It opened in HK on Christmas Day 1974.

As I vividly recall, some comparisons made of the following...

Chi Kuan Chun = A Chinese, good-looking version of Lee Van Cleef
Chen Kuan Tai = Chinese Tommy Lee Jones
Yasuaki[Shoji] Kurata = Japanese Alain Delon
Leung Kar Yan = Evil Bruce Lee.
Tsai Hung = Chinese Christopher Lee
Toshio Kurosawa = Japanese Stephen Boyd

And of course, they all had tremendous, NOBLE screen presence that was missing in Hollywood film heroes or anti-heroes of the time (i.e. 1970's)...

Finally, we as kids growing up in the '70's NEVER saw ripped physiques like that of Bruce Lee or Chi Kuan Chun in Hollywood or Bollywood heroes...Keep in mind, this was before Stallone's Rambo or Schwarzenegger [who finally made it to the mainstream thanks to his buddy Sly who paved the way for modern mainstream Hollywood muscleheads]...Mr. Chuck Norris appeared too hairy, like an ape, in Bruce Lee's ROTD or WOTD...As a skinny kid, dreaming or hoping of some day attaining a muscular physique was certainly a priority back then...LOL.

Dear friend
Thank you for sharing your nice experiences, it was very touching. You are right, Meng Fei was underrated all the time, but many people loves him. Some day, he will receive the respect of a star like others. And interesting your suggestion of 1949 as birthdate. Maybe if someone can read chinese and translate magazines, set some light over the subject. Thanks for the pictures and I invite you to join the Social Group Meng Fei Fans and post all the information you want.

I mentioned this in the "Ten Tigers From Kwantung" thread in the Shaw Bros. forum.
I was watching the trailer for "Enter the Whirlwind Boxer" a.k.a. "Prodigal Boxer 2", a.k.a. "Young Hero of Shaolin" (1975). Produced by South Sea Film Co. Hong Kong, it included a title card that said,
"Meng Fei, grandson of Tan San, Cantonese 5th Tiger, and the heir of Tsai-li-fu."

The closest character name from "Ten Tigers From Kwantung" that I can match was Yeung Hung (1) as 'Tieh Chow San'. The Ten Tigers live on. I think it is an amazing tidbit that ties life and cinema together, but it would be an outrageous statement to print on film if it is not true.
:16_003:

@ MarsHarmony :

Tsai Li Fu[Choy Li Fut] was a Kung Fu system...[Tsai Li Fu=Mandarin; Choy Li Fut=Cantonese]

Master Tam Sam[i.e. Tan San] was a practitioner of Choy Li Fut[Tsai Li Fu]...

Even though I have yet to confirm it, Tam Sam(1873-1942) could possibly be Meng Fei's paternal grandfather; the one advertised in that trailer for Young Hero of Shaolin(1975) by South Sea Film Co. ...

Here is a virtually copy-pasted bio [I made only some minor corrections in spelling, grammar, & punctuation] on Master Tam Sam(1873-1942) :

Tam Sam learnt Hung Kuen Kung Fu as a child and at the age of 15 he become a student of Master Lui Charn, who was the top disciple and relative of Master Cheong Hung Sing. Under Master Lui Charn, he made progress with astonishing achievement, promoting him into the role of Instructor at the Hung Sing Gwoon. Tam Sam was a true believer in the superiority of Hung Sing Style, openly challenging Kung Fu masters to test their style and fighting skills in either "closed door" sparring duels or open challenge tournament matches.

Tam Sam eventually broke away from the Choy Li Fut school where he was training. This was due to an unfortunate incident in which a fight broke out between Tam Sam, his Si Sook (his master's junior class mate) and two of his family members. Master Lui Charn expelled Tam Sam from the Choy Li Fut school before he completed his training. After his expulsion, Tam Sam asked some of Lui Charn's students to help him open a new Choy Li Fut branch in Guangzhuo, Siu Bak(little north) district and called it Siu Bak Hung Sing Choy Li Fut. Eventually it was shortened to Bak Sing Choy Li Fut. Tam Sam's students referred to themselves as the Bak Sing branch of Choy Li Fut. A Northern Shaolin master named Ku Yu Jeung (Gu Ruzhang) befriended and joined Tam Sam and thus added more techniques to the Bak Sing Choy Li Fut curriculum.

It was only upon the urging of his students that he accepted the title of "SIFU". Tam Sam is credited for developing the "successive killer leopard punch" (also known as "Leen Whan Charp Choi" or "the consecutive charp-kuen" or "Fore-knuckle punch"). In retrospect he is seen as a major icon in Choy Li Fut history for his development of the style. It was this and his imposing persona that won him the status of "The Legendary Fist of The North".

Tam Sam was not just a great fighter though; he was a cultured individual who studied calligraphy. He worked as a law clerk in Guangzhou as he never could make enough money from teaching Kung Fu, in fact, he never managed to pay the school's bills from the school's income, opting to share the training expenses between himself and his students. All in all, he was a prominent martial arts figure in Guangdong.

Tam Sam, Lau Chang and Wong To were considered the three best fighters of Choy Li Fut in their time. It was truly through the effort of masters Tam Sam and Lau Chang that Choy Li Fut became so famous.

Tam Sam created the devastating "Leen Whan Charp Choi" - a continuous hammering of long straight fore-knuckle punches. This remarkable technique helped the name of Choy Li Fut to thunder throughout the whole middle part of Southern China and attracted many people to join the Buck Sing Gwoon. The sharp, knife-like technique gave Choy Li Fut a distinct identity, somewhat like the karate "chop" or the Judo "shoulder-throw".

He died at the age of 69 from a disease that was deemed incurable due to the limited medical help of the day.

Tam Sam was survived by his son, TAM FEI PANG who had a large following of disciples in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

In memory of Tam Sam, his anniversary is celebrated on the 24th of December, by the Chinese calendar.

Kung Fu folklore abounds with legends, and many are historically incorrect, but Tam Sam was recognized, even during his own lifetime, as a martial arts legend. Even recently, movie producers researched him as a subject for a string of martial arts action movies based on his legendary life. In interviewing his senior students and family, the producers were told quite bluntly that "There is no-one good enough to portray in a movie". The producers boasted "We had Jet Li in mind for the role of ", but those interviewed were still not convinced, highlighting that he was a very real person, not a fantasy. His life left controversy lingering in many Kung Fu circles due to his relentless and provoking nature.

(NOTE: The producers ended up making films on Wong Fei Hung instead).

----------------------------------------------------------

End of virtual copy-paste.

Master Tam Sam's surviving son TAM FEI PANG could possibly be our Meng Fei's father...

As for Master Tam Fei Pang, I researched the following :

Tam Fei Pang learned the Tsai Li Fu[Choy Li Fut] system from his legendary father Master Tam Sam[Tan San]. He was also sent by his father in an exchange program to the famous Bak Shaolin master Ku Ye Cheung. Consequently, Master Tam Fei Pang incorporated both styles.

As for that title card from Young Hero of Shaolin(1975), the only inaccurate content of South Sea Film Co.'s claim about Meng Fei was that Master Tam Sam[Tan San] was the 5th Tiger of Canton. Everything else apparently checks out, though. Maybe South Sea Film Co. publicists confused Master Tam Sam with Master Wong Fei Hung, who was the son of Wong Kai Ying--one of the real life Ten Tigers of Canton[Kwangtung].

This is great stuff Slazinger_7! More details than I have seen so far for this tale of grand scope. Thank you for sharing this, it is fascinating!
I knew of Choy Li Fut because of Fu Sheng's film demonstration from New Shaolin Boxers! I am still trying to track down a copy of Meng Fei's Prodigal Boxer 2, the trailer on youtube looked pretty clean and widescreen. Hope that more of Meng Fei's films will be restored to a good viewable condition some day.

I love Meng Fei ! I like all his movies ( that I have managed to find so far !!)
" THE GREEN JADE STATUETT " I think is very COOL !! :wink::wink::wink: ! I even like him in stuff like " SILVER HERMITT FROM SHAOLIN TEMPLE " The whole 5 minutes of the opening sequence before he dies :tinysmile_angry2_t: ! but it is true that he is very underrated in the western part of the world . There is even a few books & SEVERAL dvd audio commentaries where he is casually mention & dismissed as the " whathisnamebabyfacedguy " VERY IRRITATING !!!! He is cool when he plays Fang Sai Yuk too ! All around good !!
I realise it seem weird for some of the stars to decide to stay in Taiwan ( when not even of Taiwanese origins ) & do movies but in some way they maintain their privacy better there , The Triad influence is different than HK ( although prevalent , from a different perspective ) . In addition the industry ( esp. TV is doing quite well now , along the lines of the mainland TV industry explosion). Chi Kuan Chun is another star that comes to mind in this aspect.

Meng Fei was born in Canton China in 1954, he studied Choi Lee fat kung fu there ,He is direct descendant of one of the Ten Tigers of Canton, I forget which one,in 69 or 70 he fled Red China and swam shark infested watrers to Hong Kong, wher he worked on Construction jobs, after seeing an ad in the newspapers for a Chang Cheh based film company looking for new young kung fu actors, Meng Fei turned up for the audition and the rest is history. not sure if he is really half Italian, since this would be realy rare at that time period and if he was he coud have left China by more conventional means

Here is a copy-paste from a kungfumagazine.com forum by a member that acutally states that Mung Fei[Meng Fei] was the adopted son of Sifu Tam Fei Pang--son of Tsai Li Fu[Choy Li Fut] pioneer Tam Sam :

I made the same assumption when I first heard Sifu talk about him. It actually wasn't until the footage got posted & I showed it to sifu and started asking questions about Tam Sing that I learned more about him. I had actually confused stories about him with Grand Master Fei Pang's adpoted son Mung Fei.

http://forum.kungfumagazine.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-43196.html

-------------------------------------------------------

I also included the URL from which I tracked this down. This is all I could dig up so far. Australian Dave Lacey, a pioneer of Tsai Li Fu[Choy Li Fut] in Australia, was a pupil of Master Tam Fei Pang. I have included below a photo of the late Master Tam Fei Pang with Dave Lacey. The above copy-paste is the only documentation which I have found thus far which actually states that Mung Fei[Meng Fei] was the son of Master Tam Fei Pang; albeit, an adopted son. This is still an ongoing investigation & research. However, there is nothing that I have found that links Meng Fei's genealogy with any of the Ten Tigers of Canton aside from the probable error made in the South Sea Film Co. title card from the trailer of Young Hero Of Shaolin(1975)...Click on thumbnail to enlarge photo of Sifu Tam Fei Pang [Meng Fei's biological or adoptive father],

According to this news excerpt dated 1st Jan 2009, Meng Fei is age 60. This would mean he was born in 1948. Could you provide us some of your sources which document Meng Fei to be born in 1954 or even 1951...Much appreciated if you can...

Hair is a man's dignity? Fei Meng blew: the Mediterranean crisis once told him to distress(2009/01/10 20:51)

Fei Meng, 60, blew, there was the Mediterranean partial alopecia head, so he was very depressed. (Qiu Rongji She's) Bell's poetry / Taipei

Fei Meng, 60, blew, there was the Mediterranean partial alopecia head, so he is very depressed, and later to Korea to do hair, the only solution on top of the crisis. As fat as life's Mengfei Jiang stressed: "would rather have no money, nor did the hair." He believes that hair is simply a man of dignity and self-confidence, but also to the Chou Yi loudspeaker, with bonds of friendship, quite willing to help and then helped to raise him from wig under the embarrassment.

Even if 60 years old, Fei Meng does not recognize the old, regular maintenance, injecting a toxin into plants to send them altogether! Today, his hair in particular to share experience, he said, his head appeared 10 years ago, McDonald's pattern baldness crisis, so he is not acceptable, then relied on to Korea to do hair transplant surgery, only to save the Mediterranean crisis, given that many of Taiwan also have this trouble, Fei Meng was to introduce the latest hair techniques.

Fei Meng said that he would rather not have the money, nor did the hair, stressed: "This is a man of dignity with self-confidence." Fei Meng to martial arts star was born that year to perform with and Pan Ying-Zi "evil" play Yang Guo and hit. Fei Meng said, year in Hong Kong, with Dillon, David Chiang, Fu Sheng, Qi Guanjun such as adding Shaolin, he broke the news: "At the time Dillon had also joked that I definitely was the first to get bald, and did not think Dillon is the first a first bald. "

But because long-term need to take the lead in martial arts costume play set, Fei Meng was able to escape the bald crises, and it finds a solution, saying, Fei Meng also Chou Yi propaganda, if you need help, he must be very similar, "said free too hypocritical, but as long as he began, I will try to solve the top worry for him. "

Aged 60, still has to maintain a living dragon, he revealed his secret: the night wandering large dog Running 2 hours, plus twice-yearly injection of botulinum, Fei Meng laughs and says: "look to ensure fans than my grandmother still young. "

Fei Meng said his mother, a doctor from the maintenance concept, "I grew very concerned about the daily facial care, like brushing your teeth, like, sooner or later, heavy maintenance, and pay attention to skin changes, spreading face 3 times a week, a year injection two Clostridium botulinum. "Fei Meng boast, as long as ground maintenance, must tender skin.

----------------------------------------------------------

I copied this very link from right here in the Meng Fei thread by Wuxiawuxia in post #13 ...

One cannot help but notice that in the above news excerpt about Mr. Meng Fei, the fact that he is age 60 at the beginning of year 2009 is stated at least 4 times!

Also, Meng Fei has two supporting roles listed in his IMDB filmography for the year 1969. I have an IMDB account under the same username I have used here in this forum. I had posted a message in the Meng Fei message board at IMDB as well as uploaded 5 photos of Mr. Fei under the IMDB external links-photographs section...

Long yin hu xiao (1969)
... aka "The Challenge" - International (English title)
Mie men zhi huo (1969)
... aka "Avenging Eagle" - USA (video title)
... aka "Shaolin Hero" - International (English title)
... aka "Sheng-piao Hero" - Hong Kong (English title)

Meng Fei rose to overnight stardom throughout East Asia with the release of his starring title role of The King Boxer--which opened in HK on 1st Jan 1971. Mr. Fei followed this with an even bigger boxoffice hit the following year in 1972 with the release of The Prodigal Boxer. When Meng Fei joined the cast of Five Shaolin Masters(1974), he was already a much bigger boxoffice star than either Alexander Fu Sheng or Chi Kuan Chun; which explains Mr. Fei's disappointment & frustration with Mr. Chang Cheh for having less screen time than either of them in FSM. Both The King Boxer(1971) and The Prodigal Boxer(1972) were worldwide releases (including the most desired markets of USA & Can). Mr. Fei had already starred in 5 five films before he joined Chang Cheh & Shaw Brothers for FSM in '74; in the earlier '74 release The Invincible Kung Fu Trio, Mr. Fei was already top billed over Angela Mao & John Liu (who made his screen debut that same year with either that film or Zen Kwan Do Strikes In Paris, also released in '74).

Now that I saw both films[TKB & TPB] again just within the past week, I realized that I had seen BOTH FILMS back in the summer of '74 in L.A.! It wasn't until a week ago that I realized the star of both those flicks was one of the same stars[i.e. Meng Fei] of Five Shaolin Masters(1974)! I believe I had seen FSM toward the end of '75 with English subtitles at the historic Kim Sing movie theatre on Figueroa St. in Chinatown L.A. Back then, as a pre-junior high schooler, I didn't pay that much attention to martial arts actors' names, with the obvious exception of Bruce Lee...There were just far too many of them with the virtual avalanche of martial arts films that were released in North America between '74-'76! I started to pay attention to their names after we started frequenting Kim Sing, Royal Pagoda, and Sing Lee theatres for well over a year...I would say from '77 onwards...

I had seen TKB & TPB with hordes of other martial arts films that were dubbed in English at the World, Pacific, Wiltern, etc., theatres in L.A.; not to mention the Downtown L.A. theatres of Cameo, Arcade, and Orpheum...To be honest, I had almost completely dropped out of the entire martial arts scene from '83 onwards (when I finished high school)...And it wasn't until over a month ago that I revisited that aspect of my youth. We're talking 27 years! So many more things are now coming back to memory regarding those martial arts years of my life...

Thanks. Much appreciated.

Is that Japanese book possibly available anywhere online to purchase or even accessible for an excerpted reference?

Also, could you copy-paste the Wikipedia info regarding Meng Fei here on this thread as I only found info on the female gymnast Meng Fei & the male figure-skater Meng Fei in Wikipedia...I couldn't find anything on actor Meng Fei in AsianMediaWiki either...

However, Wikipedia too can be a mess, like IMDB...

From that article, it might be safe to assume that Mr. Fei's mother is a doctor in some branch of healthcare[maybe dermatology or cosmetology].

The part of Mr. Fei swimming across shark-infested waters to arrive in HK sounds like studio manufactured publicity. He was already a well-established star before his collaboration with Chang Cheh & Shaw Bros.

You were right about :

Mie men zhi huo (1969)
... aka "Avenging Eagle" - USA (video title)
... aka "Shaolin Hero" - International (English title)
... aka "Sheng-piao Hero" - Hong Kong (English title)

IMDB itself lists it as a 1982 release in the more info section. I just missed it.

However --

The film The Challenge(Long Yin Hu Xiao) has Meng Fei listed as a supporting player and was released on 4th Dec 1969, though...

On the other hand, Hong Kong Movie Database has the 1969 Taiwanese release Clover[Xing Yun Cao]--directed by Gao Shan Lan--listed as Meng Fei's cinema debut. Below are URL's for reference.

Maybe Mr. Fei appeared in both 1969 releases...

Thanks! Although I can no more read Chinese than Japanese or Korean...LOL. Could you please translate or have it re-pasted under the translate page sometimes available on the internet. This is a great find on the seemingly ever-elusive, mysterious Meng Fei...

By the way, I never stated that Meng Fei was an established star before TKB('71) or TPB('72). I had stated that Mr. Fei was an established star before FIVE SHAOLIN MASTERS(1974).

If his real name is Yang An Tung, then I wonder if it is true that he was the adopted son of Master Tam Fei Pang...?

Well, courtesy of Shapes we have come this far in trying to get some biographical material on the mysterious & elusive Meng Fei...Even though the info provided by Wikipedia is hardly conclusive for complete accuracy. No mention about Mr. Fei's parentage or what exact system of martial arts he was trained in or even the actual name of his uncle who allegedly trained him...

Also, Meng Fei's filmography is hardly complete in this Wikipedic listing...And the 1978 listing for The Invincible Kung Fu Trio[Hong Xi Guan Fang Shi Yu Liu A Cai] doesn't mention that it was a 1978 North American-European RE-RELEASE. Its original release has two opening dates : 1st Jan 1974 in HK & 31st Dec 1974 in USA-Canada...Finally, in addition to Ms. Angela Mao Ying, a King Kong is listed as a co-star instead of Mr. John Liu[Liu Chung Liang] & Chung Chien Li...This has to be a translator error in Google language tool from where I got the translation.

Nonetheless, this is indeed a breakthrough regarding Meng Fei!

Thanks, Shapes...

Well, we finally found some detailed biographical info on Mr. Meng Fei...

However, there seems to be contradictions as to his Chinese name, birthdate, birthplace, & weight [68 kg/150 lbs or 75 kg/165 lbs]...

His Chinese name was either Mengfei Ying Wen or Yang Andong...

He was either born in Hebei Province, China; Shandong Province, China; or Taiwan...

The year seems to be set at 1951 [I did find a web page clip which listed 1952]...

Until something else surfaces, Meng Fei[aka Mengfei Ying Wen; aka Yang Andong] was born on either 4th Sep 1951 or 1st Jan 1951 in Hebei or Shandong Province, China or Taiwan...

Can Mr. Meng Fei makes things any easier for his fans...!?

The only thing sources agree upon is Meng Fei's height at 174 cm (5' 7")...Wait, there was the one listing in the above URL that listed 173 cm (5' 6 1/2")...LOL!

I love Nicholas Tse (the new wave of male actors and talents) and he is Virgo and Monkey. I don't know if this combination is good... but I LOVE HIM. :tongue:

I knew here some colleagues of Virgo (males) and I got along very well with them. :angel: It is hard to run behind a crazy Dragon-Aries woman (plus latin blood...)

Man very interesting indeed.

I too think Meng Fie is very underrated.


Are you implying that Mr. Fie learned martial arts from the line of masters you spoke of?

Or do you know if Meng Fie has a martial background and if so what is it?

GD Y-Y

I Think I found the confusion in the identification of Sifu Tam Sam[Tan San] as one of the Ten Tigers of Canton[Guangdong]. Below is an article excerpt that might explain it :

http://www.bath-taichi.co.uk/Bath_Tai_Chi/Lineage.html

After the competition Ku Yu Chang was appointed as one of 'the Five Tigers of the North who went South', he, with the other four masters, were to open National Martial Art Schools and teach Chinese Martial Arts to the masses. One of the main objectives of Nationalist government during the 1920s was to unify China. It developed the motto: "A Strong Mind and a Strong Body builds a Strong Country". Part of their plan was to use martial arts to strengthen the populace. This resulted in the creation of Kou Shu. For more information on this historical development see the article 'Disappearing weapons in Chinese Martial Arts' by Sifu Damon Smith on the Yongquan site.

If you're interested then much more extensive information on Ku Yu Chang is available here from the Kung Fu Online discussion forums.

At the Republican capital in Nanjing Ku Yu Chang had the opportunity to expand his knowledge and skill from other kung fu teachers, including studying Hsing-I, Pa Kua and Tai Chi Chuan with Sun Lu Tang. He also had important exchanges with Tam Sam, one of the five Southern Tigers of the Choy Lee Fut style. They reportedly had a bout of which no one is certain of the victor. Since then Choy Lee Fut sets of Tam Sam's lineage incorporated Northern Shaolin sets into their curriculum and vice versa.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

So the alleged paternal grandfather of Meng Fei, Sifu Tam Sam[Tan San], was one of the 5 Southern Tigers of the Tsai Li Fu[Choy Lee Fut] Kung Fu style...Not the 5th Cantonese Tiger. Sifu Tam Sam[Tan San] had two wives and more than the one son Tam Fei Pang. It is possible that Tam Fei Pang was the uncle[mentioned in Meng Fei's Wikipedia bio] and also adoptive father of Meng Fei who trained him in Shanghai. Sifu Tam Fei Pang later moved to Kowloon, HK and established a martial arts following. He could have taken Meng Fei along with him.

Most listings of Meng Fei's filmography list his screen debut in the starring, title role of The King Boxer (released on 1st Jan 1971). It may be speculative, but how did Mr. Fei immediately get such an important break in HK martial arts movies in his very first film? He was barely 19 years old! It may be because of Meng Fei's alleged family lineage with Sifu Tam Fei Pang and Sifu Tam Sam[Tan San]...Unlike the late Fu Sheng, who had enrolled in the Shaw Brothers southern drama school in 1971 and didn't get a starring role until 3 years later with the 27th Sep 1974 release of Na Cha The Great; only because Fu Sheng caught the eye of the legendary Shaw Bros. film director Chang Cheh.

Ah my friend nothing stop you!!! You have tons of info for share, and meticulous way of writing and researching, and I find it very impressive. Thank you. And yes, Fei Fei belongs to the lineage of Five Southern TIgers of Choy Li Fat.
I only disagree with you at this point: Alexander Fu Sheng was launched to stardom - slighltly - since the release of Police Force (13 June 1973), as coprotagonist, and he won by his character in this movie in the 20th Asian Film Festival the Award "Best Young Newcomer". The real stardom (explosive) came with the release of Heroes Two (19 January 1974) as protagonist, and he caught the attention of Shaw Brothers for his talent, his charisma, charming and of course, as a young handsome heartbreaker newcomer.

I only disagree with you at this point: Alexander Fu Sheng was launched to stardom - slighltly - since the release of Police Force (13 June 1973), as coprotagonist, and he won by his character in this movie in the 20th Asian Film Festival the Award "Best Young Newcomer". The real stardom (explosive) came with the release of Heroes Two (19 January 1974) as protagonist, and he caught the attention of Shaw Brothers for his talent, his charisma, charming and of course, as a young handsome heartbreaker newcomer.

Alexandra

You're absolutely right. I totally forgot about his second lead role to Wong Chung in the '73 release Police Force...That role was Fu Sheng's launching pad to stardom. What I had meant to convey was Fu Sheng's starring role by himself and not as a co-star; he had no less than FOUR earlier 1974 film releases that catapulted his career before he starred in a Shaw Bros. picture by himself in Na Cha The Great. Back then, the late Fu Sheng's popularity was mainly throughout East Asia; he did not get mainstream[English dubbed] US-Canada exposure until the 1978 release of the The Chinatown Kid[a '77 release in HK & Taiwan]. Meng Fei, on the other hand, had mainstream[English dubbed] US-Canada exposure with the late '73 release of Hands Of Death or TKB[released on New Year Day '71 in HK] & the '74 release of TPB[released 2 years earlier in HK & Taiwan]. TKB was reissued in USA-Canada as a summer of '74 double-feature along with new release TPB; that was when I first viewed them both. When I first saw FSM toward the end of '75[I believe it was], Meng Fei first came to my attention. Believe it or not, way back then, I had no idea he was the same actor that was the hero of TKB & TPB! I didn't recognize him, he looked totally different to me in FSM back then. As I had stated in an earlier post, outside of Bruce Lee, I didn't pay attention to the names of the hordes of martial arts stars until the summer of '77 onward; up until then, I only recognized their faces (with the exception of Mr. Meng Fei whom I did not recognize when I first viewed FSM).

When I first saw FSM, this was in Chinatown L.A. at Kim Sing theatre which showcased Shaw Bros. films in Mandarin-Cantonese[with English subtitles], exclusively targeting Chinese & East Asian audiences. The 3 main CT L.A. theatres of Kim Sing, Sing Lee, and Royal Pagoda by no means targeted mainstream US audiences. I think our family were the only non-Orientals that frequented these 3 theatres, believe it or not. I recall that we may have on the rarest of occasions seen any mainstream American audience members patron any of those theatres in CT L.A., when we frequented them from '75-'80! As a result of this, we became pretty well known to the theatre manager of Kim Sing back then.

My sister was a huge Fu Sheng fan way back when. He was her favourite right after Bruce Lee. She preferred Fu Sheng to all the other Shaw Bros. ensemble : David Chiang; Ti Lung; Chen Kuan Tai; Chi Kuan Chun; Tang Yan Tsan; etc. Chen Kuan Tai was my Dad's favourite right after Bruce Lee...After Bruce, mine was Meng Fei. I think the late, great Bruce Lee was everybody's sentimental favourite...As he was not only the first true worldwide martial arts superstar, but a modern Daoist philosopher & a pioneering founder of an entire new martial arts system : Jeet Kune Do. I believe the martial arts movies craze hit USA-Canada like a meteor in March 1973 with back-to-back releases of Five Fingers Of Death(1972), starring Lo Lieh & Bruce Lee's The Big Boss(1971); these two flicks set off an avalanche of martial arts films that were released in USA-Canada. To quote the Little Dragon--"Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all the heavenly glory..." There is NO WAY anyone can tell me screenwriter Michael Allin wrote that into ETD's script. That was pure Bruce Lee philosophy...

Here was a top 10 list of my favourite martial arts movie heroes of all time from back in the day[i.e. late 1970's disco days]--from a jr. high schooler's perspective :

1-Bruce Lee
2-Meng Fei
3-Chen Kuan Tai
4-Chi Kuan Chun
5-Ti Lung
6-David Chiang
7-Alexander Fu Sheng
8-Jimmy Wang Yu
9-Shoji[Yasuaki] Kurata
10-Tang Yan Tsan

It might be superstitious, but Fu Sheng bought the late Bruce Lee's house, then died almost exactly 10 years later himself...There are a lot of people who firmly believe in the curse upon the Little Dragon. His son Brandon died by a freak accident, also...As superstitious as it sounds, I wonder if Fu Sheng had NOT bought Bruce Lee's house, he might still be alive...?

And yes, Fei Fei belongs to the lineage of Five Southern TIgers of Choy Li Fat.
Alexandra

Sifu Tam Sam[Tan San] was one of the 'Five Tigers of the North Who Went South'; for this reason, he was called 'The Legendary Fist of the North'. Later, after establishing himself in Canton[Guangdong], he came to be called one of the 5 Southern Tigers of Tsai Li Fu[Choy Lee Fut]. When he became a Sifu in his own right, Tam Sam's martial arts heir & son--Tam Fei Pang--settled in Shanghai and established his own kwoon; he later moved to Kowloon, HK and gathered a following there. Sifu Tam Fei Pang seems to be the only one of Grand Master Tam Sam's sons to have followed in his father's footsteps in pursuing martial arts as a way of life. I wonder if Meng Fei was somehow disbarred by his alleged adoptive father & uncle (Sifu Tam Fei Pang) for pursuing a martial arts screen career. It has been documented that the Tsai Li Fu[Choy Lee Fut] lineage of Sifu Tam Fei Pang was very traditional and would probably not have tolerated any type of commercialization (such as movies) of their Kung Fu system? Just a thought...

It not true that Alexander bought the Bruce's house, is a rumour, a fluff of some magazines or yellow pages. I have some pictures but not... The neighbourgh, could be the same, of course one of the most expensives in Kowloon area, but I noticed in Alexander's house some details of the balcony, the main entrance, the door, other details... it is a simple two floors house, in a peaceful place, not in the middle of the "jet set" noise. There is not fiable proof that was Bruce's house. For me, is a coincidence that the two died the same month. Alexander was close to die in several opportunities, only God knows the paths of destiny of each human being in this world. Sceptic? Maybe.

Thank you for the research, I had already read all of these information. And I know very well the site of Jena Pang, he, as nephew, he know very bad some facts about his uncle life, seems incredible thinking in "family ties". He was a kid when Alexander passed away, he repeat some passages of websites without any checking. Internet databases sometimes are very dangerous because repeat some mistakes or fluff of the journals, or simply sensational news without any real evidence. I will ask to a friend whom is a expert in Bruce's life, but in my opinion all of these passages you posted here, are repetitions of rumours, I only need a text in chinese, serious, not a journal or a internet database, where I can translate (not me, something whom can read very well the chinese) "AFS bought the Lee' s house in the year ----, in the Kowloon Tong neighgourh, lived on it from------to-------", etc.

Anyway thank you for your effort.

I was positive that I had seen Meng Fei playing a black-patch-over-one-eye villain as a guest appearance in a sword-fighting film but as I only saw that movie once at Kim Sing theatre over 30 years ago...I am not so sure anymore. I haven't been able to track it down in any of Mr. Fei's filmographies...I guess I was mistaken.

Besides, with that babyface, I don't think any film producer or director would ever cast him as a villain. Although, I have seen Meng Fei in an extremely rare appearance with a light moustache & thin beard in one of his flicks posted on YouTube.

I think Mr. Fei was a much better actor than he was EVER given credit for...If one watches him carefully in some of his films, his range of expressions are surprisingly more versatile and completely in character than anything I had ever seen of either Ti Lung, Chi Kuan Chun, or even Fu Sheng. Despite what anyone may say, Fei was a better actor than anyone of them. He just didn't get the opportunity to showcase the full depth of his talent. But if one watches his various films very carefully, this will become apparent...

Hi
In my icon is Alexander. Is him because is my only real love, the man I love, If I could live in his time in a "imaginary time machine and go back forward", I will love him ´till my day of end. I admire him as person, hansome man, talented actor, good friend, companion, charismatic one, charming, the "Biggest Star in Shaw Brother Sky". Then I admire a lot, in second place, as talented actor, charming and handsome man, Fei Fei, that was enough for me for open a thread devoted to him.

I had meant that you were absolutely right about Fu Sheng getting his break in an important screen role which helped pave the way toward stardom : Police Story('73). I wasn't referring to the award he had received. I honestly had no idea that Fu Sheng had won an award in '74. That year 1974 was Fu Sheng's year. Mr. Chang Cheh started to take greater interest in Fu Sheng's career than he did of even David Chiang, Ti Lung, Chen Kuan Tai, or Chi Kuan Chun.

As for Meng Fei, he only did the one film with Chang Cheh or Shaw Bros. : Five Shaolin Masters(1974). I vaguely recall reading in some magazine article some 30 years ago that Chen Kuan Tai was originally slated to be one of the leads of FSM but was already tied up in other Shaw Bros. & Chang Cheh projects. And Meng Fei was an outside replacement. Had Chang Cheh taken an interest in Meng Fei, like he did in Fu Sheng, Mr. Fei would have gone on to become one of Shaw Bros.' BIGGEST stars. There is little doubt as to that. I recollect my Dad having the same thoughts on that years back. I also recollect from conversations in the past that Meng Fei was a free spirit and really disliked the regimented system Shaw Bros. had for their contract players. That could have been another reason why he and Chang Cheh didn't click. If one closely watches the climactic fight scene between Fei and Leung Kar Yan in FSM, it is very odd that the camera favours the BAD GUY with more close-ups than that of the star : MENG FEI. As it was, Mr. Fei had the LEAST screen time than anyone of his other four co-stars in FSM. That was undoubtedly Mr. Chang Cheh's doing as he was the film's director.

Despite the differences of data between the sources, is a remarkable step in the quest: "Discovering the misterious life of Fei Fei".

Well Alexandra, I found out that the Meng Fei profile which had listed him at 68 kg/blood type A/born in Hebei on 09-04/etc., was another (much younger) martial artist of the same name; and NOT our Meng Fei...Plus, I also found another profile source which CONFIRMS the birthdate of 1951-01-01 or 1st JANUARY 1951 for our Meng Fei.

This makes Meng Fei born in the Year of the Tiger, instead...And NO Rabbit. LOL!

Feb 17, 1950 – Feb 05, 1951 Yang Metal 庚 寅 Tiger

Someone in this thread, I can't remember who, mentioned that Mr. Fei had a smile that reminded them of The King, Elvis...

Agree with you 50% in all your message, but: the "babyface" must not be condition for give always to an actor the same character --that is to say -- the good and nice boy. As you remark, Fei Fei was an actor with a wide range of expressions and versatile, so I guess he could make a villain very well. Sometimes, the "babyface" in evil or villain roles, could be most frightful that others with "normal" face features. But in that case, the directors observed the fantastic Fei Fei face, good looking, handsome man, symphatic one, charismatic and charming smile, and of course gave to him characters of heartbreaker or good boy. Is quite normal.

By the way, I wasn't speaking for myself when I commented on his "babyface" being the reason why HK & East Asian filmmakers always cast him as the good guy...

If one watches some of his expressions in Hands Of Death[aka TKB] or The Prodigal Boxer, it becomes apparent that Mr. Fei would have made a terrific villain with that 'babyface'...

After all, Italian maestro Sergio Leone took one of America's most beloved film actors--Henry Fonda--and made him into a baby-blue-eyed, smiling killer of unprecedented callousness in Once Upon A Time In The West(1968)...

In his lengthy film & TV credits, there HAS to be a villainous part in there somewhere for Meng Fei...We just haven't come across it yet or if someone who has seen it, hasn't yet brought to our attention in this thread.

By the way Alexandra, you really did justice to Mr. Fei in putting up this thread. If there was a way for you to contact Meng Fei directly via email, that would be something...From his photos that were uploaded here in this thread, he seems like a pretty accessible fellow and not a recluse.

He's got to have his own website or press agency which receives his fan letters or emails and responds...Wouldn't it be a treat if it could be tracked down...?

Those photos of his which were uploaded certainly say plenty about the activities of his life & career...As the old saying goes : A picture is worth a thousand words.

P.S.--Alexandra, here is the late Fu Sheng & Meng Fei's frequent co-star Mr. Chi Kuan Chun's email address from his website www.chikuanchun.com...Mr. Chi Kuan Chun is a real life Hung Kuen martial arts master; currently, his official website is still under construction. However, Mr. Chun or his representative could maybe provide some feedback and memorabilia about his many collaborations with the late Fu Sheng, whom he knew pretty well. Like Meng Fei, Chi Kuan Chun settled down in Taiwan.

Those still shots pretty much sum up what I always maintained in the past about Mr. Fei being a much, much better actor than he was ever given credit for...But now, it seems there are Meng Fei fans who are surfacing and are active in an almost total REVISION of his film career.

30 years before I found out that the hero of TPB & HOD[aka TKB] was the same guy as Fang Ta Hung of FSM, as a kid, I really related to Mr. Fei's characterization of The Prodigal Boxer...Especially, his relationship with his mother. I had a similar relationship with my own, so I really related to that character. As with many pre-adolescent/adolescent/post-adolescent young fellows, I was equally reckless, fun-loving, and fearful of mother as Fei's character in TPB.

My sister and her girlfriends liked Meng Fei & Fu Sheng mainly because of their looks back then. Of course, I never really understood what went through the minds & emotions of pre-teen and teenage girls...But I guess as they matured, they obviously came to appreciate way more than just the looks of those two martial arts stars. Just like us guys came to appreciate a lot more than their fighting prowess as we too matured and saw what fine actors those gentlemen were. The one thing that always baffled me was how many females liked all those guys : David Chiang; Ti Lung; Fu Sheng; Meng Fei; Chi Kuan Chun; Chen Kuan Tai; etc., etc...I mean none of them really made any movies that catered to female audiences back then. They were all martial arts ACTION stars targeting mostly male audiences of all ages...

Those photos of Mr. Fei which I was fortunate enough to find and upload, really do say a lot about his life & career...About what type of a family man he is as well as a professional actor & STAR. Even his current activity in the healthcare product business is covered in those photos...

Excellent photos MarsHarmony! I just showed Mr. Fei's youthful photos from 8 Drunkards to my nieces, and they think he makes the Johnny Depps & Ashton Kutchers look like car salesmen...LOL. They couldn't believe that those are photos of a former Asian martial arts star! I'm trying to acquaint my nephews & nieces with some of the things which I grew up on...There is a whole new generation than from the one I grew up in that has no idea of the great personalities that once graced the silver screen of world cinema...Or even in the music industry, for that matter : Santana; Deep Purple; Led Zeppelin; Steely Dan; Chicago; K. C. & the Sunshine Band; Donna Summer; Bee Gees; etc., etc...

P.S.--I wasn't aware Mr. Chun wasn't particularly fond of the late Fu Sheng...Objectively, I can understand it. He always came across as a no-nonsense serious martial artist & actor to me...From past feedback, I do remember that Chi Kuan Chun and Meng Fei got along pretty well and held mutual respect for one another.

I wholly agree...Chi Kuan Chun & Alexander Fu Sheng were probably one of the greatest onscreen match-ups EVER. Whatever their off-screen relationship may have been, their onscreen chemistry was pure cinematic genius---Mr. Chang Cheh was responsible for that. Hats off to the legendary Chang Cheh!

Hi Mengfan,

Are you sure about that? Those photos of Meng Fei & family clearly show his eldest son and he is NOT Elizabeth Oropesa's son from Mr. Fei...I'm not sure if they had any children from their marriage...Without engaging in gossip about Mr. Fei, the only publicized online personal info regarding their marriage has stated that it ended due to 'Meng Fei's infidelity' [i.e. Mr. Fei allegedly cheated on Elizabeth Oropesa].

This son of his, shown in Meng Fei's family pics, is a post-adolescent and has appeared as a model & actor in Taiwanese media. His real name is Wang Baixiang, although his professional name is Meng Xiang. From those photos of the Meng Fei family, Elizabeth Oropesa is certainly not Meng Xiang's mother...

Yes Meng does have a son named Gabriel with Elizabeth Orapesa. I can be a bit off with the age of the son but I watched the movie that Ms Oropesa produced herself about her life with Meng Fie. Up to about six years ago, she was complaining about how Meng does not even make an effort to contact their son.

Elizabeth Oropesa actually made an autobiographical documentary about her marriage to Meng Fei?

From what has already been posted in this thread, Meng Fei was Elizabeth Oropesa's 4th husband...

It is hard to evaluate whether or not celebrities ought to publicize to any great extent their private lives...That would be a matter of serious debate. In the U. S., professional careers are sometimes ruined if personal info damaging to one's reputation is publicized.

Nonetheless, it is hard to envision Mr. Fei as having abandoned his own offspring after viewing all those photos taken of him with his son Meng Xiang [Wang Baixiang]...He seems to be a really doting father.

I love Meng Fei. always did. No disrespect to him, we are not perfect, he is not perfect either. I do not admire him because of his looks mainly, although we cannot discount his looks. We have to be realistic of the fact that the man is only human and he has made mistakes in the past. He does have a son Gabreil with Ms Oropesa when they were married. If she decided for whatever reason to make a film about theitr lives together, who are we to dispute that. I am sure she went through the right channels or else Meng Fei could have sued her. Are there not movies made on the lives of Elvis, the Kennedeys and others RIGHT here in the States?. Even Priscilla Presley hand picked that Jonathan Reis Myers to play the King Elvis. Please not let us jugde Ms Oropesa because we are all big fans of Meng Fei. Let 's keep it real.

I think you maybe misunderstood my remarks...I wasn't passing judgment on Ms. Oropesa at all. I was just surprised when you mentioned that in that documentary she publicly complained about Meng Fei not seeing their son...I wasn't at all disputing Ms. Oropesa or her claim. But as you stated, she probably went through the proper legal channels. And I'm certainly not aware of the legalities of some of the SE Asian countries.

However, I did speculate that it was hard to envision Mr. Fei abandoning any biological child of his...Going mainly by those photos of him and his family that were uploaded here in this thread...It seemed difficult to envision as he appears to be a doting father.

Also, I was just making comparisons about how sticky things get here in the U.S. in terms of lawsuits when any public comments or criticisms are made by celebs about other celebs...

And I was speculating on what the protocol might be about celebrities revealing maybe too much about their private lives as a subject for serious debate. I never actually passed a definite opinion on the subject matter, one way or another...

I was not saying that that Ms Oropesa conplained about Meng Fie not contacting their son Gabriel in the movie about her life with him. Meng has been a neglegent father to Gabriel. He probably learnt from his mistakes from his lack of fatherly contact with Gabriel on how to connect with his other children. I say good for him, some people never learn.

mengfan
05-29-2010, 10:19 PM
If he did learn, I repect him more. I did not make this up. Ms Oropesa conplined about Meng's neglegence in the past and I can't blame her. Thier divorce was quite acromonious but at the time, their then young son should not have had to suffer. Like I said, Meng was quite doting for the world and the camera in his family appearance on the TV show but we need to be open that he is human and made mistakes in the past. Let us not become blind fanatics here.

I guess I must have also misunderstood you...When you mentioned about the documentary of Ms. Oropesa, the very next sentence was about her complaining about Meng Fei...I automatically assumed it was in relation to the documentary. My error.

However, I will have to differ with you on the fact that I am no 'blind fanatic' about Mr. Fei. If you have paid careful attention to any of my posts in this thread, that will become quite apparent.

Finally, even though this thread is generally about Mr. Fei's life & career, I think with this particular subject matter about his marriage to Ms. Oropesa and their son Gabriel is delving too deeply into Meng Fei's private life...So with all due respect to Meng Fei fans & Mr. Fei himself, I will no longer offer any more thoughts on the subject and concentrate mainly on Meng Fei the actor, martial artist, and star.

I have noticed some differences of opinion on the privacy of Mr Fei, and in this regard I wish to clarify: this space devoted to him was intended to express freely and in a respectful way, to read and share information that enrich us as each one can provide several perspectives thoughts, feelings, passions, criticisms and all I can say about the life and work of Mr. Fei. I can not tolerate in any respect as another member of this forum, point out that something must be said and that another should not say, with arguments that seem frivolous, and saying that a partner is a "blind fan", a fact which I consider insulting because no person has rights to label or tag to anyone about their admiration for the artist which is speaking. As for being a fan, I wish to clarify once and for all, that every person in this place, nothing but admiration for an actor, an actress, a director, a choreographer, but consider them smart enough to think they have spirit critical, because as we all know, the "blindness" is caused precisely censorship, discrimination, and even if you look in history, is what has led to the misunderstanding of the other, leading to the worst wars that can be imagine. Here, no one will say what you should speak or what you should not talk. Here there is freedom and respect for an artist, which we feel admiration and we have a critical mind and to look objectively at your work and life issues, always with respect, to share with all, mainly because, rather than being " "blind fans" are fans of talents. This I would like to close the case because it is painful to see that this space is wasting time on the whims of those who say what they should say or not.

When I think you can talk about facts of life and career of an actor, I understand that none are able to judge their action. Since an actor achieves fame, is already a public person, where his exposure to the world is enormous, and is subject to all kinds of opinions about their private life since he stopped being a public figure, like it or not. It is the rule of the game. It is clear that a person like any other that makes mistakes, but we are not to judge. Or we enter into what the tabloids fluff. Everywhere you look, on any public figure, be read stories of all kinds about his private life, whether married or not, if he had children or not, if it was a faithful husband or a casanova, is part of the game I repeat. The data reported here about his private life can be very useful for all who admire Mr. Fei, only an anecdote, not just started this debate which we are not trained or authorized, both morally and ethically.

And all I say this as someone who has felt very bad reading the messages, and as moderator of Meng Fei Fans Social Group, I do not want these sputtered prevent the free expression of my friends or feel intimidated. Here are many people who have much to offer, and that is wonderful, so I suggest to follow this path, and that detracts think hundred times before writing any censorship. Thank you.

By Mark Pollard | Published November 18, 2007

A brash young man learns the “Eight Immortals” kung fu style from a drunken beggar. Trouble begins when an old enemy and his powerful allies comes looking for the beggar, forcing the young man to defend his friends and family with the aid of a wizened gambler and a mysterious young woman.

Mang Fei teams up with director and co-star Wu Ma in this humorously entertaining story of drunken boxing, gambling, and bad hair.

Who ever said working in a noodle shop was easy? Certainly not Chang Fung (played by Mang Fei). Chang is constantly harassed by his lazy uncle who runs the shop. Then after getting a thrashing from a drunk, Chang ends up enduring a month of painful training from him before walking out in frustration. Shortly after, Chang draws the attention of Master Pai, a wealthy martial arts master who wants that drunken beggar dead. His cronies cause all sorts of trouble for the young man. Thankfully, Chang receives help from a mangy-haired street gambler named Monkey (Wu Ma) and a beautiful young woman with a potent Mantis fighting style who falls in love with him. Monkey manages to win money to repair Chang’s shop after its destroyed, but the family is eventually kicked out. Chang tries to fight Tan Hun, Pai’s head crony, but fails. He returns to the drunken beggar to complete his training and learns of the beggar’s rivalry with Pai. Pai hires a mysterious fighter in a basket hat who follows Chang to the beggar’s hideout, but gets beaten. When Chang’s cousin is kidnapped and his uncle left for dead by Pai’s men, he fights his way through Tan Hun, two more hired baddies known as the Silver and Gold Tigers, and finally takes on Pai himself.

Kung Fu of Eight Drunkards is an amusing film along the same lines of Sammo Hung’s Filthy Guy (1980) or Knockabout (1979). Classic kung fu comedies were at their peak thanks to the previous success of Jackie Chan’s Drunken Master (1978). While not as well known, Mang Fei was a competent comic lead in his own right and a decent martial arts star to boot. I must admit to being a biased fan of Mang, but he really does pour on the charm as an over-anxious, yet fun-loving fellow. Wu Ma seems to be wearing the same dirty wig Sammo wore in Filthy Guy. His performance as a pick-pocket and street gambler is actually quite memorable as he manages to give the character emotional depth. The drunken beggar routine has been done countless times, but the fellow who plays him in this film is quite convincing. In one terrific scene, Mang Fei is attempting to fend off the attack by Lung Fei while the beggar tells him which stance to use. At one point, the beggar gets lost in his own drunkenness, leaving Mang hollering for what stance to use next. Wu Ma ends up shaking the drunk out of his stupor just in time.

The martial arts action is fairly good, but the emphasis is on well developed characters. This is where the film shines, especially since the action slows down in the middle. Liu Ming as Mang’s love interest is attractive and kicks butt! Her character does seem to just float in and out of scenes at times, but its a welcome diversion. The way in which her true identity is revealed is surprisingly subtle and effective. I was disappointed with Lung Fei’s role. He trails Mang throughout the film as a menacing figure and cranks his neck to one side as a trademark gesture. While the fight with Mang is interesting, it’s all too short given the buildup.

I could also speak against the film’s meandering plot. It all comes together at the end, but it occasionally stalls. Some of the gambling scenes with Wu Ma aren’t that interesting and could have been cut. Overall, I’m a big fan of kung fu comedies and I really enjoyed this one. Wu Ma gives a good acting performance and Mang Fei is like an easygoing Jackie Chan. There isn’t anything groundbreaking to see, but Kung Fu of Eight Drunkards winningly incorporates the best elements of the genre popular at the time of its release.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I rescued this excellent review of Mark Pollard about KFo8D, but I point up:
Every actor have his own way for make comedia, even the orders of the director or the possible acting training got that could moderate or change the self expression.
To make comedia is not equal to be a comedian. They are differents. Jackie Chan make comedia, mixed with acrobatic skills. He (in terms of acting, purely technically speaking) repeat all the time several gestures, facial features, and body positions along all his movies. I not found in him a wide range of modalities or expressions that enrich a comedian. I discovered in Meng Fei an superb comedian, not someone who make a comedy. His gestures, the versatility in his movements, demonstrated an extraordinary source of comedian energetic one, but not well known in Western audiences. I appreciate of course the talent and the career of Jackie Chan, but, I must give not my "two cents" for Meng Fei, but my "zillion cents" for his charisma as an comedian.

Dear mengfan, I truly admire your dedication. Because of you, I have decided to come out and clarify things about Meng Fei. There were a lot of info about him that were wrong. He was born May 25, 1951.
He has the same birthday as his son, Gabriel (yang chin long). He is 25% Russian. His Hong Kong last name is YEUNG. In Taiwan, it is spelled YANG. He was my 2nd husband. My first husband died when I was 21. Meng Fei and I were separated after 7 years of marriage. The reason is something that i really don't want to talk about anymore.. Let it be known, that no matter what happens, I will always love him the rest of my life. It's true that he never got in touch with us from the time that we separated, which is so painful because his birthday and my son's is the same. But I have forgiven him, I had my shortcomings too. My son loves him, and have forgiven him also. He is basically a good man.

If I can love him up to now, so can all his fans. Showbiz is showbiz. It's a very difficult world. What you see and read in the tabloids is something that us actors cannot avoid. It can make us, and ruin us.
I know because I am an actress. I never complained that he didn't get in touch with us anymore. When the media asked me if we were communicating, I just said NO. They made a big story out of it. What people know about me is most of the time completely the opposite of what I am. Most people don't know who the real Meng Fei is. I only wish that all life can be like a movie with a happy ending.
Let's be happy for him.

I'll be posting more pictures soon, you can find them in my photo albums.

Yes ,he is right .
I like that photo , it is from the " FORBBIDEN KINGDOM "
( with Jet Li & Jackie Chan ), the actress is the beautiful FAN BING BING playing a version of "the bride with white hair " character.. She has only done a few movie but I have seen all her China & HK TV series .

The writing in my signature is a Buddhist quote , I am a Buddhist not by religion but by the philosophy .
The meaning really is to RELATE TO SOMEONE ELSE AT THEIR OWN WAVELENGTH , to let go of NARROW MINDEDNESS...

Very important I think ! & WE CAN USE SOME OF THAT AROUND HERE with all the silly arguments ! Don't you agree Alexandra ??

My first husband died when I was 21. Meng Fei and I were separated after 7 years of marriage. The reason is something that i really don't want to talk about anymore.. Let it be known, that no matter what happens, I will always love him the rest of my life. It's true that he never got in touch with us from the time that we separated, which is so painful because his birthday and my son's is the same. But I have forgiven him, I had my shortcomings too. My son loves him, and have forgiven him also. He is basically a good man.

If I can love him up to now, so can all his fans. Showbiz is showbiz. It's a very difficult world. What you see and read in the tabloids is something that us actors cannot avoid. It can make us, and ruin us.
I know because I am an actress. I never complained that he didn't get in touch with us anymore. When the media asked me if we were communicating, I just said NO. They made a big story out of it. What people know about me is most of the time completely the opposite of what I am. Most people don't know who the real Meng Fei is. I only wish that all life can be like a movie with a happy ending.
Let's be happy for him.

I'll be posting more pictures soon, you can find them in my photo albums.

Very interesting !

You are right ! I always mix up the 2 Last Names so sorry !
I think Li is a slightly better actress than Fan but both are great !
What do you think ?
Thank You, Athena


No worries.

I haven't seen much of either of them but from what I've seen I'd agree that Li is the better actress. There's still room for improvement on both their parts though.

This is UNBELIEVABLE...!

Ms. Elizabeth Oropesa[Mrs. Yeung Liza] initiating communication herself on a Meng Fei thread...

We've all got to thank Mengfan for this totally unexpected privilege.

Thank you for offering some personal information about Mr. Meng Fei. I can't imagine how the starter of this thread--Alexandra--will react to this...

Actually getting a response from a celebrity and also a former spouse of Mr. Meng Fei...

The only thing left would be to get Mr. Fei himself to drop in on this thread and Alexandra might faint...LOL!

Seriously, Mrs. Yeung[Ms. Oropesa], with all due respect, this is a totally unexpected privilege for ALL of us, indeed...

Please do offer some more general biographical info on Mr. Meng Fei as he truly deserves all the recognition due him as an actor and martial artist from the perspectives of his many fans around the world...

One of the burning questions I had was whether Mr. Fei was the adopted or biological son of Sifu Tam Fei Pang, the Choy Lee Fut[Tsai Li Fu] kung fu master, as well as the grandson of Grand Master Tam Sam--the Choy Lee Fut pioneer? This info regarding Mr. Fei was presented in the official movie trailer of his film from 1975 titled Young Hero Of Shaolin...

Is this a fact or was it a publicity stunt by South Sea Film Company--the film company that produced that film...?

Also, you stated he is 25% Russian...Is that from his mother's side or father's?

Where was Mr. Fei born and what is his full real name and could you tell us something about his parents?

Also, please upload some more photos of his son Gabriel for us...It would be much appreciated. What a coincidence that Meng Fei and his son Gabriel share the same birthday! How did Mr. Fei react to this when Gabriel was born?

Is Gabriel planning an acting career, also?

Forgive me for all these questions but the totally unexpected visit by someone such as yourself in this thread is...What can one say...?

Your candor and sincerity in your post about Mr. Fei was quite moving.

Thank you ever so much for joining our Meng Fei thread...Look forward to hearing from you soon.

dear Slazenger_7, Meng Fei's real name is Yeung Un Tong. He was born and raised in Mainland China. Quang chow I believe, forgive me if my spelling is wrong. I can speak a little mandarin, but cannot read or write. He is 25% Russian on his father side. He has one younger half-brother. His mother and stepfather are both medical doctors. He never met his real father. I think he died when he was very young. It's true that he swam from Mainland to HongKong. He is a very strong willed, determined man. He only saw me on TV, and he decided that he wanted me, and started looking for me through the chinese community in the philippines. Unbelievable. Long story. Maybe you're not interested.

He was very happy when I got pregnant. He was happier when I gave birth on his birthday, in fact he made me promise to hold it for as long as I can, so I can give birth exactly on the day he was born. In other words, Gabriel is a gift of love from God (according to him). I quit acting for him. I dedicated myself to taking care of my husband and son. Unfortunately, we were not able to surpass one major trial that came our way, that's why we separated. How I wish I could write and read chinese, so I could follow up on him quietly, without disturbing him.

How I wish that he would also see how tall and very much like him the face of his son. My son's chinese name is Yang Chin Long. It means "Golden Dragon", according to him. With regards to acting career, NO, I forbid him to become an actor unless he finishes schooling.

Oh yes, I forgot.... Meng Fei is truly very vain! But I love him just the same. I know for sure that his "Alopecia" (male pattern baldness) bothered him tremendously. I'm glad he found a way to fix it. It would have not bothered me if he was bald. Hehehe. His face is so handsome, nothing can change it, hair or no hair. Besides, some kung fu movies requires them to shave their hair, except for a pony tail at the back. And they still look good.

Enough for now, will post more pictures when I get to buy a new scanner, too busy at the clinic right now. Cheers to all his fans!!!

Love, Lizayeung.

To all his fans, in case you're wondering about my signature, he used to always shout from downstairs when he arrives, no matter how late "Mrs. Yeung! I looooooove you so! ".

He calls me Mrs. Yeung, since the day he became my boyfriend, and I call him Mr. Yeung since the day we were married, up to now.

Dear Mrs. LizaYeung Un Tong,

I must say one thing, for all the fans in the world Mr. Fei has, it is increasingly becoming apparent that NONE of us compare with the love and adoration you (his spouse) has displayed for him...

I really am at a loss for more words beyond that...

THANK YOU ever so much for the biographical info on Meng Fei...General history and investigative research were always an interest of mine during my school years. Hence me asking you all those biographical questions about your husband.

I wonder if Mr. Fei will ever get wind of this Kungfu Cinema Forum thread dedicated to him some time in the future...

Maybe he can communicate with you and his son right here...I know that famous actors and filmmakers do regularly browse IMDB and even offer some articles under assumed names (psuedonyms) so as not to draw too much attention to themselves...This I know to be fact.

IF after Gabriel finishes his schooling, and both of you mutually decide that he should proceed with an acting career, what name would he use?

Gabriel Fei or Meng Fei Jr.?

After all, Antonio Sabato Jr. didn't do too badly with his acting career considering his dad Antonio Sabato was a popular leading man of the late 60's and 70's in Western Europe...

You yourself were a top star of Filipino cinema affectionately nicknamed La Oropesa...Are you permanently retired from acting?

I caught some clips of your films from YouTube...

There are articles about your career as a faith-healer, spiritual consoler, and psychic posted in the internet...This seems a world apart from your acting career...

Here is an article excerpt:

La Oropesa sees dead people
By Marge C. Enriquez
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 03:04:00 06/29/2008

Filed Under: People, Culture (general), Belief (Faith)

MANILA, Philippines - “Bistado! (exposed!)” exclaims the healer’s assistant.
Bicolana-American healer “Doctor Freeman” is mildly pressing the spine of a male patient. As she loosens up the tension in his upper body, she burps continuously.
She discovers he is extremely toxic from smoking, drinking and other excesses. Her hands seem to be sucking the negative energy from him while the continuous gross burping releases it. She blurts in Tagalog, “I can also sense indiscretions.”
In her clinic, she sheds off her image as onetime screen vamp, Elizabeth Oropesa (Freeman is her father’s surname). She is giving a demonstration on the Dorn Method, a gentle vertebrae and joint treatment for ailments linked to the spine, enhanced by her psychic gifts.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is truly fascinating...!

It says your father's surname was Freeman. I believe your mother's name is Flordeliza..

With Meng Fei being one-quarter Russian, with all due respect, may I ask what is your complete ethnic background?

He only saw me on TV, and he decided that he wanted me, and started looking for me through the chinese community in the philippines. Unbelievable. Long story. Maybe you're not interested.

Actually, it would be a very INTERESTING read for both Meng Fei & Elizabeth Oropesa fans...To get it right from the source rather than those disgraceful tabloids...

As you stated, Mr. Fei is a very determined, strong-willed person...I wonder which was more difficult for him, the swim (which I originally speculated to be studio publicity) from mainland China to HK or finding his way to you...?

When my dad was doing HK martial arts film distribution to India back in the 70's, I remember one of the films he was negotiating was THE DRAGON, THE LIZARD, THE BOXER...

How did Mr. Fei get along with Filipino martial arts superstar Ramon Zamora?

Also, how popular in the Phillippines was Meng Fei among the Filipinos?

Did Meng Fei EVER play a villain in any of his martial arts films?

Gabriel looks really tall...Meng Fei is listed at 5-ft. 7-in. but he seems shorter...

Salamat.

P.S.--There is a picture of Mr. Fei and maybe yourself working out in a gym in post # 122 on 13 May 2010; it is with a host of other photos. I have attached it below. Is that you?

That was quick, slazenger_7! Meng Fei got along very well with Ramon Zamora and all the rest of the Filipino actors. Of course they were going "gaga" over him, it was the height of his career after -King Boxer. He too is funny, sweet and very handsome. Everybody wanted to take care of him. (who won't?) I have not seen him play the role of a villain ever. If he did, it was probably before me, and he never mentioned it. Fei Chai, that's how his friends call him...is not very tall. I'm taller, but it never bothered him. In fact, I would wear heels when we go out, and he would proudly display me to everybody like a trophy. He said: "Very strong famous men have wives that are tall". He would always refer to Napoleon Bonaparte (talk about confidence! the guy is oozing with it.)

Obviously, Gabriel took his height from me.. If ever Mr. Yeung's boy will become an actor, ( not if I can help it) , we have not talked about the change of name. His height as of now is 6'1. He's studying in DLS-CSB, one of the famous schools in the Philippines, studying Digital Arts and getting a degree in Animation.

The only reason why I came out and joined the thread, is because I felt it's time to correct some of the misinformation regarding Meng Fei. Incidentally, his english name is Anthony Yeung. I also wanted the people to know that he has another son that he never saw since after he was 2 years old. This way, if something happens to me and I am gone, maybe some of his fans who can write and speak chinese will let him know that his son is now without a mother. The same way in case he dies ahead of me, I would like his son Gabriel to have the privilege of being there even for just the last time.

Nothing else, nothing more. I have no intention of disturbing his life, especially now that he has another family. Everything will be up to him.

With regards to my career, I stopped a total of 3 years straight, then after that would only accept a TV show and a movie maybe once a year. But only if I liked the role. The last one I made was chosen to compete at the "Oscars". All of these is because I was studying. I took up TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), physiology and anatomy, I specialized in bone alignment medically, aside from specializing in caring for cancer patients. I studied so many other things I don't need to put here, lest the people think i'm bragging. I did all of these after bagging the super Grand Slam Best Actress. I felt it was time to change my career.

I was born a clairvoyant. Even Mr. Yeung knows it. I could heal sick people since I was young, and could see spirits. I never talked about this before because being in showbiz, the media and the people might make a big issue out of it and might say negative things about it. Besides, it was not yet accepted before, unlike now, people are more open. I went to medical school and studied TCM as well, so that when I open a clinic, it would be legitimate, and my gift would just be incidental.

Wow slazenger_7! you sure know how to ask the right questions. I have not yet thanked you for being his avid fan. Thank you, slazenger_7. Yes, I'm the one at the picture exercising beside him. My real name is Elizabeth O. Freeman. My father is a doctor in the US army. He is half-american Indian (apache).

Love, Mrs. Yeung

Love, Mrs. Yeung

Mrs. Yeung,

I grew up in Los Angeles and my formative years were the 1970's...We youth didn't have any heroes to look up to from the TV shows and films back then...There were the Steve McQueens, Clint Eastwoods, Charlie Bronsons, Lee Van Cleefs, Roy Scheiders, Richard Roundtrees, Ron O'Neals, etc...

But NONE of them were the type of heroes or role models that appeal to young boys like when we came across Bruce Lee, Chen Kuan Tai, David Chiang, Ti Lung, Chi Kuan Chun, Alexander Fu Sheng, and last but not least--Meng Fei...

These guys gave us noble and honorable heroes to look up to and emulate...I think my generation was the last that had heroes of that caliber...

Look at todays "heroes" worldwide...They are all a bad joke! There are no more Bruce Lees or Meng Feis around for the youth of today...

However, I am becoming an Elizabeth Oropesa fan also...No joke. There is quite a large Filipino community here in the U.S. : FIL-AM Association of America...

That was a RARE picture I happened to have found of yourself and Meng Fei which I uploaded here...I am really shocked that there aren't MORE photos of the two of you...!

Here in the U.S. media, photos of celebrity couples are saturated....

It is INDEED a privilege that I managed to upload a photo of celebrities Meng Fei and Elizabeth Oropesa[Mrs. Meng Fei]...Without sounding ill-mannered or impertinent, Mr. Fei clearly appears to be really taken up with who and what he's looking at in that photo (I mean you, of course)...A picture says a thousand words...

Gabriel is 6-ft. 1-in.!? Man, that is tall. It is truly fascinating that you have Apache heritage as well. That is fantastic! So this means Gabriel is Filipino, Han Chinese, Apache American, and Russian! This young man has got to be very, very intelligent, indeed with that mixture. Digital Animation...Excellent. Toy Story 3 just released here in the U.S. and has already broken records for an animated feature...

I also wanted to congratulate you on your great humanitarian work for the sickly...You are truly a remarkable celebrity...Almost NO such showbiz people ever have a second career like the one you have chosen.

God bless you and your son Gabriel. We Meng Fei fans pray that Mr. Fei sees it in his heart to revive personal contact with you in the near future...A family should be together...Even if there is more than one. I was raised Muslim even though my mother's side are all Roman Catholics and I was baptized...Polygamy is lawful in Muslim religion as long as it is done with honor and respect and all families are tended to and cared for with equality--this is straight from the Koran. In the U.S., polygamy is still practiced in the Mormon Christian state of Utah...Please forgive me if I have gotten too personal, but we pray for you and Gabriel and that you are in some way reunited with Mr. Meng Fei. Gabriel looks like a strapping young man and really does look like his Dad...But taller.

Did you ever consider writing an autobiography about your life as a celebrity and as a CLAIRVOYANT...And Meng Fei's wife...? A book has lasting power...It would certainly be a bestseller!

I have one last question for you...As a recognized clairvoyant, can you foresee any reunion or even personal contact between yourself & Gabriel and Mr. Fei sometime in the future...Or is such a vision too personal for even a clairvoyant to foresee with clarity or accuracy?

I also wanted to THANK YOU profusely as a Meng Fei fan (and now an Elizabeth Oropesa fan, also) for coming out and graciously offering information about another celebrity--being a celebrity yourself. You have truly done the UNPRECEDENTED for a former showbiz celebrity!

My Filipino friends would freak out if I told them...

As I related to a friend, us men have a propensity to be self-centered and like to talk about ourselves...But women tend to be more selfless and self-sacrificing...They prefer to talk about those whom they love. As you have about Mr. Meng Fei & his son Gabriel.

Salamat.

P.S.--Viewing your public profile, I found that we share the same birthday...What a coincidence. I have the same username in IMDB and I wrote the only message board post under Meng Fei's IMDB profile. I also added some of his photographs which no one else had added. There is only the few sentences offered by a K JUNO on Mr. Fei's IMDB biography. Maybe, if or when you have some free time, you could add Mr. Meng Fei's biographical info and some more photos...Who could possibly be more qualified then yourself? IMDB is obviously the most widely viewed movie website in the world.

...talking about Meng Fei's movies: The King Of Boxers was probably made in late 1971/early 1972 and was shown in Hong Kong cinemas in 1972!

The King Boxer was released on 1s January 1971 in Hong Kong. It preceded the release of Bruce Lee's The Big Boss which opened on 3rd October 1971. The King Boxer was filmed in 1970 when MENG FEI was 18/19-years-old!

Mr. MENG FEI's two films - The King Boxer(' 71) and The Prodigal Boxer(' 72) were worldwide releases. TKB(' 71), I saw as a double feature along with TPB(' 72) in the summer of 1974 when I just turned 8. I still remember that summer as vividly as if it was yesterday...

TKB was released as Hands Of Death, following the success of Five Fingers Of Death(1972) which was released in the U.S. in March 1973. Hands Of Death[aka The King Boxer] was listed as having being released in late 1973--certainly after the August 1973 release of Enter The Dragon.

I also vividly remember seeing the new release of Bruce Lee's Return Of The Dragon(1972) in August ' 74--a couple weeks before the school year started back in L.A.

Here in the U.S., MENG FEI had public exposure before David Chiang or Ti Lung.

David Chiang first came to mainstream U.S. audience exposure in 1975 with the release of Seven Blows Of The Dragon(aka Water Margin-1972). Ti Lung got exposure with his co-starring role to Stuart Whitman in They Call Him Mr. Shatter(1974). But back then, only Jimmy Wang Yu, MENG FEI, and Chen Kuan Tai were known from the Chinese-Hong Kong scene after Bruce Lee. Also, Lo Lieh was known from Five Fingers Of Death and Stranger And The Gunfighter (he co-starred with Lee Van Cleef) but he didn't enjoy the same popularity as Jimmy Wang Yu, MENG FEI, or Chen Kuan Tai.

Mr. Chen Kuan Tai had the one big release in Man Of Iron. Jimmy Wang Yu had lot's of exposure with One Armed Boxer[aka Chinese Professionals] and the popular The Man From Hong Kong (with the one-time only 007 George Lazenby).

The other Shaw Bros. stars like David Chiang, Ti Lung, Chi Kuan Chun, and Fu Sheng gained mainstream recognition during the TV re-runs of the 70's martial arts films throughout the 1980's. Not to forget Gordon Liu, who became quite popular with mainstream U.S. audiences with those re-runs.

Fu Sheng had mainstream exposure from the release of The Chinatown Kid in ' 78, but became more recognized from the 80's TV re-runs of 70's Kung Fu movies.

But I clearly remember that neither David Chiang or Ti Lung received that much attention from their mainstream North American releases as did Sonny Chiba, Jimmy Wang Yu, Chen Kuan Tai, or MENG FEI. Of course, this is before Jackie Chan hit the scene with his comedy-kung fu.

When I saw Mr. MENG FEI in Chang Cheh's Five Shaolin Masters in Chinese(with English subtitles) in Chinatown at Kim Sing theater on Figueroa, I didn't recognize him at all as the same actor from TKB or TPB...Believe it or not!

As for Bruce Lee, he was in another category altogether! He was rival to mainstream Hollywood action heroes like Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, and Charles Bronson--ALL of whom he blew away in the minds of us kids back then...Didn't matter if we were Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, or whatever...!

Angela Mao & Judy Lee received exposure from the HK scene as well, especially Ms. Angela Mao (because of Enter The Dragon).

Sonny Chiba and Sue Shiomi were known from the Tokyo scene.

I was here in the U.S. back in L.A.--movie capital of the world--and saw firsthand all the releases I mentioned above. I came to the U.S. as a kid back in 1974...Right smack into the eruption of the martial arts movie craze. My Dad was into martial arts film distribution to India back during the 70's and the first half of the 80's.

I do recollect that MENG FEI was really popular with the girls as well...Whereas Jimmy Wang Yu, Sonny Chiba, and Chen Kuan Tai (in their mainstream North American releases) were really popular heroes to emulate among us guys...

I'm going by the white heat of recollection of the martial craze of the 70's...Sorry for being so long-winded about it...It's just that they were fond memories of growing up and I had experienced it first hand.

well, my friend, The King Of Boxers WAS shown in Hong Kong in March 1972 with a not so good BOR HK$ 596000...this is a fact and makes sense anyway...
It was produced by Chang Ying's company H.K. South Sea ( Nan Hai in chinese...)... Chang Ying was a friend of Chang Cheh and the later (with his wife) was for sure involved in Nan Hai's inaugural production...
You may study the HK film year 1971 with its two biggest BOR sensations The Big Boss and Duel Of Fists (by Chang Cheh)...The King Of Boxers, 1972, was a cash-in of these, but a nice one...there are movie mag articles in old chinese mags about The King Of Boxers, but for sure none in 1970/early 1971..........

Hello Friend,

You know that Five Fingers Of Death was its North American title but its original Asian title was King Boxer. That was starring Lo Lieh and was a Shaw Bros. distributed film.

MENG FEI's Thailand filmed movie had The King Boxer/King Of Boxers [Xiao Quan Wang] as its Asian titles with Hands Of Death its North American title...

It is uploaded on YouTube and the opening credits of the MENG FEI starrer clearly states The King Boxer after about 7 and 1/2 minutes into the film. The Exec. Prod. is listed as Yang Huo Mu; the producers are listed as Tu Tung Sun & Chang Ying; the writer-director is Kung Min.

In the HK cinemagic database, the U.S. trailer of this very same MENG FEI debut is billed as Hands Of Death. That is what I remember seeing it as along with The Prodigal Boxer in the summer of ' 74. Both MENG FEI starrers were reissued in ' 75 and ' 76 as I recall.

Below is an example from Cinemasie.com, which is one of numerous sites, that lists the MENG FEI starrer The King Boxer as a 1971 Hong Kong release...

-----------------------------------------------------

I could very well be mistaken but are we talking about the same March 1972 HK releases...?

I cannot positively confirm that the MENG FEI starrer--The King Boxer/Hands Of Death/King Of Boxers--was released on 1st Jan 1971 or sometime in 1971 because I was not there in HK then.

I'm only going by most of the literature that I came across on the internet about it, and 1971 is the year most listed. However, I am positive about all the martial arts films I have seen in the U.S. since June 1974...Those I experienced firsthand and I can positively vouch for them...

For example, I only know that Bruce Lee's Enter The Dragon debuted in L.A. in August 1973 at Grauman's[i.e. Mann] Chinese theater because that is what is listed in documents. I wasn't there at that time.

I was there for the 1974 reissue of Enter The Dragon which was playing at The Egyptian theater on Hollywood Blvd. ...That one I can positively vouch for because I WAS PRESENT THERE AND SAW IT THERE with the family...

Just like I was PRESENT at Pacific theater on Hollywood Blvd. when Clint Eastwood's The Gauntlet was released in ' 77--around Christmas that year (yes, Christmas!)...I clearly remember the actual bus used in the film that was shot full of holes parked right in front of the Pacific theater during the opening week of the film as a publicity stunt...We who stood in line to watch the movie, remember being awestruck by that public bus...

My Dad was shockingly liberal when it came to R-rated action films to which he took us kids...He took me to all these R-rated ACTION films back in the 70's and would tell me to cover my eyes if there was any inappropriate content that suddenly appeared in those films...

Incidentally, I almost forgot about David Chiang's late 70's mainstream North American exposure with Peter Cushing in The Seven Brothers Meet Dracula [originally released in HK and UK in 1974]...It was a martial arts-horror film!

David Chiang is listed has having had 1973 initial U.S. releases of New One Armed Swordsman [where he replaced Jimmy Wang Yu] and a fall ' 73 U.S. debut of Seven Blows Of The Dragon [aka Water Margin]...I remember the kids in our neighborhood first mentioning David Chiang's name in the ' 75 release [or reissue] of Seven Blows Of The Dragon...I saw it during its ' 75 release...Anyway, they are all memories for me...As when I remember this one kid who misread it's title and kept calling it Seven Balls Of The Dragon...Until some of us corrected him. LOL.

You see, the difference with MENG FEI's U.S. exposure was that he stoodout from his ' 73-' 74 releases of Hands Of Death[The King Boxer] and The Prodigal Boxer...For us youthful moviegoers, this man was the HERO of the film. It stayed in our minds after the films were over...

David Chiang just blended in with all the other personalities in his initial mainstream U.S. exposure. We were familiar with Jimmy Wang Yu as the One Armed Swordsman and One Armed Boxer but who was this new guy? And in Seven Blows Of The Dragon, Mr. Chiang just blended in with the ensemble cast...Only us martial art diehard neighborhood kids knew his name from the ' 75 release of Seven Blows...

Like MENG FEI's U.S. mainstream exposure, the same thing applied for Mr. Sonny Chiba [The Street Fighter series] and Chen Kuan Tai [Man Of Iron]...They clearly leaped out of the screen because their mainstream initial U.S. releases were solo, virtuoso efforts and not ensemble pieces [Chen Kuan Tai went completely unnoticed in just a 2-scene part in Seven Blows]...

Nothing to belittle Mr. Chiang. He remains one of my all-time favorites to this day and can hold his own against ANYONE...I'm just relating from vivid childhood recollection, that's all.

Thank you Mrs. Yeungliza... I am really happy for have you in the Forum. I hope you can understand our feelings for Fei Fei (sorry, I am not disrespectful, but since I knew him, of course in his movies, I started to call him Fei Fei, don't know the reason).

Only a simple question: can you speak spanish?

Alexandra, you are too cute & sweet...I don't think you are capable of offending anybody...

The last time someone may have seemed to have possibly offended anyone, Mrs. Meng Fei dropped in on us...What luck.

I wonder that because so far an official MengFei website has not been located, that Fei Chai might drop in on us here...?

There is always that possibility. I must say that Gabriel Yang Chin Long looks like his father, whereas his half-brother Wang Baixiang [Meng Xiang] looks like his mother rather than his father...

Yes. You can catch it on YouTube. I saw the whole movie The Shaolin Kingboxer [aka Tie Quan]; released in HK on 29 Sep 1976; reissued in the U.S. as Iron Fists in 1979...

It is really a Martial Arts remake of Sergio Leone's For A Few Dollars More (1965). On YouTube, it is listed under Shaolin King Boxer--the entire movie is uploaded in 9 parts.

This movie stars Chen Kuan Tai & MENG FEI as the protagonists and Lau Kar Wing & Leung Kar Yan (billed here as Liu Chia Liang & Liang Cha Jen) as the villains.

Chen's character is based on Lee Van Cleef's Colonel Douglas Mortimer, while MENG FEI's character is based on Clint Eastwood's Manco.

Lau Kar Wing's character is loosely based on the Gian Maria Volonte's laughing hyena character Indio...Except that Lau Kar Wing doesn't laugh at all...

MENG FEI plays a roguish ladies man named Ting Yi-Lang with the WHITE FAN...He shows up 15 minutes into the film...In fact, his very first scene is with him in bed with a really hot lady at a brothel...

Chen's character is out for revenge for his slain family...MENG FEI's character is only interested in collecting the hidden loot of Lau Kar Wing and his gang, as well as collecting the bounty on all their heads.

Who the hell puts a moustache on Mr. Chen Kuan Tai....!? That film director must have been trying to make Chen look like Lee Van Cleef...

This movie should have been titled DISHONOUR AMONG THIEVES. There isn't a single trustworthy character in this whole film with the exception of Mr. Chen Kuan Tai's character. This film has nothing to do with anything Shaolin.

Fantastic screen teaming of Chen Kuan Tai and MENG FEI...

Only drawback is that the English dubbing is really bad...Whoever they chose as voice-over for MENG FEI was a terrible choice. The Cantonese language version with English subtitles must be awesome, though

Great ending fight!

First of all, I did not mean to offend anyone in this thread. If I did I do aplologize. I am an avid fan of Meng Fei and an equally supportive fan of Elizabeth Oropesa. I think she is a beautiful, talented and caring person as a n actor, wife wife, mother and human being. Thank you MS Oropesa for coming here and setting the record straight about a few things about Meng Fei. I guess I was only going by what I read in the papers and heard from others. Some of these people were supposed to be "reliable" sources. We could not have gotten better insight about the man himself. THANK YOU again Ms Oropesa.

Meng Fei has a very interesting background indeed. Very impressive family tree. I have to go now but will check in very soon. I want to again apologize for any negative or hurtful comments I posted. I also want to thank Ms Oropesa from the bottom of my heart for sharing this insite into Meng fei's life with us. We would have never known all this . Take care of yourself and your family.

Surprised..? I would think you would have been astounded...Some of us certainly were...And we really have you to thank for that...In her opening sentence of her initial post, she stated that because of you she had decided to come out.

I think I had mentioned that already.

There is absolutely no doubt that Mrs. YeungLiza IS Ms. Elizabeth Oropesa...

The one question I forgot to ask her was how did she come about finding out about Alexandra's MENG FEI Thread on Kung Fu Cinema Forum?

If I'm not mistaken, Kung Fu Cinema.com could possibly be the largest worldwide martial arts cinema chatline...

The bottom line is that Mrs. YeungLiza [Ms. Oropesa] accomplished her objective in that she graciously offered the CORRECT information on Mr. Meng Fei, and confirmed to the world that he does indeed have a firstborn child named Gabriel Yang.

She did it with class, style, respect, and ultimately, love for her husband--Mr. Fei. There was no bitterness or resentment just honest adoration for the father of her son Gabriel Yang Ching Long.

Any Meng Fei fan from the past or present, can have nothing but respect Mrs. Meng Fei [Mrs. YeungLiza] for her candid love and respect for Meng Fei.

There was one very interesting clue mentioned in all the Meng Fei profiles that are online (of which I copy-pasted almost all of them earlier in this thread) which only the real Ms. Oropesa[Mrs. Meng Fei] could have known :

They ALL unanimously list Meng Fei's constellation as Gemini and his zodiac as Rabbit. When Mrs. YeungLiza revealed that their son Gabriel Yang Ching Long turned 21 on Meng Fei's birthday--25th May, that explained why ALL those online Meng Fei profiles listed Gemini & Rabbit when the actual date they listed was 1951-01-01 (which would have made him Capricorn & Tiger)...01-01 then has to be a default date when the birth day & month is unknown...

Any real Meng Fei fan would pray that someday Mr. Fei reunites with his firstborn child Gabriel Yang, at least...If not Ms. Oropesa.

By the way, have you seen the Chen Kuan Tai-MENG FEI film The Shaolin Kingboxer [aka Tie Quan/Shaolin King Boxer/Iron Fists] ?

P.S.--I think you had double-posted reply #186...

Ok, right. And without any intention to start a fight, is not necessary to write "thank you" in caps. I can not understand some times several lines or speechs in english, this condition do not turns me in a vulnerable one. I can read "intentions" hidden in the lines. That is called "Discurse Analysis" in Semiology.
I repeat. Is ok.

My dear, dearest, sweet, sweetest Slazenger
I don't understand yet how Mrs Yeungliza found the thread, maybe because I have my name floating in internet (I am a personality! hahahahhahahahahha!) linked with some stuff concerning Fei Fei (and Alexander Fu Sheng of course) or she was on the net and found it.

And yesssss, I watched last night (Argentina time) Shaolin Kingboxer.... ah Lord of Heaven.... The english dubbing killed me, destroyed my ears... but by other side at least the director made a simple but good work with the cameras (nothing out of frame as in Everlasting Chivalry), I remark the excellent short fight with fan between Chen Kuan Tai and Fei Fei (part 3 in YouTube) and I fainted when I watched Fei Fei in bed with the hot lady... I noticed in him (and in other movies) some gestures, manners, customs, properly of an italian one... and maybe is a good question for Ms Oropesa, that is to say, he has really italian blood in his veins?

Anyway I can't stop love him. Every first plane, or zoom, kills me. How he dares? (MarsHarmony can understand very well this speech) :tongue:

This movie has to be seen in Cantonese with English subtitles because it takes so much away from MENG FEI's performance!

I think the film's director may have been on a tight financial budget from Hing Fut Film Company...But that dubbed voice-over for Wilson Tong as Slasher Pete almost gave me hernia from laughing.

Where do they find these guys for the English dubbing???

Mrs. YeungLiza stated that MENG FEI was 25 percent Russian from his father's side...Even though in all these years, I never once considered MENG FEI to be anything but pure Han Chinese. He certainly looks it. As did Bruce Lee, who was 25 percent German (his mother Grace Lee had a German father) but didn't look it, at all. I have traveled the Orient and I can tell you I have seen & met some East & SE Asians who look surprisingly Euro-Caucasian without having an ounce of Euro-Caucasian genealogy. I think the human genetic, DNA link has yet to reveal all its wonders and secrets...

I am of pure East Indian heritage and if anyone saw my Dad--now or back in his youth--unanimously agreed that he was either Spaniard or Italian. My Dad has not one OUNCE of Euro-Caucasian genealogy...Without seeming to exaggerate or boast, in his youth, Dad looked like a cross between a tan Burt Lancaster & Tony Curtis.

I will illustrate an example, my wife (who is 75 percent Iranian/Persian) has a fellow named MOHAMMAD REZA GOLZAR from Iranian Cinema as one of her favorite actors...If you go on YouTube or any Google/Yahoo website and look this guy up, you will see that he looks so European that no Euro-American I know who has seen his photo or films would ever say he is Iranian (100 percent). Look this actor up to see what I mean...His films are available here in the U.S. in spite of all his films being in the Farsi language (with English subtitles).

http://www.mrgolzar.ir/main.htm

And what is even more totally unexpected, is that almost ALL Iranian movies are about WOMEN as the main subjects with more than twice the amount of women stars than there are male!! Look up titles such as Ceasefire; Trap; The Hidden Half; The Last Supper; Boutique; Leila; Tambourine; Baran; etc...Baran, by the way, is probably one of the best love stories in modern cinema. It's director--Majid Majidi--had his film Children Of Heaven nominated for an Oscar for best foreign film in 1998. His film lost out to Italiano Roberto Benini for Life Is Beautiful.

It is ALEXANDER FU SHENG, that I always suspected of maybe having some Euro-Caucasian genealogy out of ALL the Hong Kong Martial Arts stars from the 60's/70's/80's ...

First: "hernia from laughing"... you kill me! hhahahhaha!
Agree with you about the subtitles, the movies are wonderful in their own languages and with subtitltes...
Concerning "euro - caucasian" thing, in my opinion, with my studies, this word is not correct, do not exist a "euro-caucasian" profile in terms of race, and more... today the people is distinguished via DNA and language family trees.
Is a hard field of research... I only wondered if was true about the italian ascendance in Fei family tree, not so far. And if he is Han, agree with you in the application of the term, because this ethnicity classification is accepted for China. Alexander Fu Sheng was chinese, the wide range of skull and face shapes (brachiocephale, etc) make that inside the "chinese ethnicity groups", we can found impressive differences, but in any way, we can suppose "some man have xxx per cent caucasian blood". Caucasian is an old and out of fashion term. Some chinese shows more "pale" yellow skin, or not pronouced the "mongol characteristic eye", etc. This is not condition for consider those persons as people mixed with "caucasian" blood.

You are right about the term "Euro-Caucasian" not in the official textbooks...It is a colloquialism I have come across on a couple of occasions which I also used here.

You sure know a lot about genealogy...I watched the anthropologist Spencer Wells' documentary JOURNEY OF MAN some years back when it first aired.

I remember once reading about a colloquial breakdown of the 3 basic genetic types of the semi-obsolete term (as you stated) "Caucasian" :

Indo-Caucasian -- Caucasoids indigenous to West Asia and Central & South Asia.

Euro-Caucasian -- Caucasoids indigenous to Europe and Russia.

Afro-Caucasian -- Caucasoids who are indigenous to North Africa : Amazigh/Imazighen(pl.) or Berbers; a unique group, who are fair to very fair-complected Caucasians but with doliocephalic craniums similar to that of Sub-Saharan Africans [i.e. Black Africans]. The sandy-blond, redhaired mummies of so many ancient Egyptians attest to them being of Amazigh/Berber [indigenous North African] origin...For example, the mummy of Pharaoh Ramses II has red-hair.

One of the greatest fallacies is that the appellation 'African' identifies Sub-Saharan Africans [i.e. Black Africans]. In fact, it was the ancient name of Tunisia : Ifriqiyah (Africa in Latin). The ancient Berbers of Tunisia were called the Beni Ifran or El Ifri by even PRE-Islamic Arabs. They were named after an ancient Amazigh/Berber goddess named Afar. When the ancient Greek & Roman historians referred to "Africans" from North Africa, they were really referring to the indigenous North Africans--the Amazigh/Berber people spread out from Morocco to Egypt. They were in no way referring to Sub-Saharan Africans[Black Africans]--whom the ancient Graeco-Romans called Abyssinians or Negroes and not Africans. Although, the very appellation of 'Libya' was derived from Lebanon/Liban as the ancient Lebanese[Phoenicians to the Greeks], settled in Libya & Tunisia and founded Qart-Hadast[Carthage/Karthagos].

Anyway, enough about genetics and anthropology...Let's get back to MENG FEI and The Shaolin Kingboxer...

Had you ever heard of this MENG FEI-Chen Kuan Tai starrer before?

In spite of the terrible English dubbing, I thought the film was a Kung Fu classic...Chen Kuan Tai and MENG FEI made a terrific screen team.

I couldn't believe the opening credits...They mis-spelled Mr. Chen Kuan Tai's name as CHEN GUAN TAY and Liu Chia Liang's name as LIU CHIA RONG!.

It is just a habit for the past sixteen years or so. I will thread on egg shells here or don't write those words here.Arguement...?....No, I think I will pass.

Slagenger_7. I too have no doubt that that is the real Elizabeth Oropesa. I do not get astounded that esily. I have been around a lot of celebrities. I am related to onefrom the States. I am married to the cousin of a Hong Kong actor/singer and my husband and his parents are friends with several Alist chinese celebs who I have met. I am not chinese though.

You are right though, celebs do read these forums and they use alias to go online and make comments. I was present to see a Hong Kong celeb go online a few yrs back and make a comment at a forum. His comment made no difference as the blogger who was terrorizing the sites went on a global rampage that ended up with FBI and lawyers and police involveement in Canada , Malaysia,Hongkong and the States. Maybe one day Meng will come here and read and respond as well. Like you , I also pray that Gabriel and his father will be reunited sooner than later.Family means everthing, or it should.

That explains your composure when Ms. Oropesa [Mrs. YeungLiza] came on board this thread...

I wasn't astounded as much for a celeb joining this forum but that it was Ms. Elizabeth Oropesa, whom we were discussing...That was something unprecedented for me and for a public chat forum--whether IMDB or this one. Usually, celebs don't REVEAL themselves but keep incognito (under pseudonyms) when they enter discussion forums or post an article. This is for obvious reasons. But Ms. Oropesa came out openly and joined this thread which was UNPRECEDENTED for the most part...

I met a few celebs myself both from Hindi and Hollywood cinema but I have never wanted to be photographed with them or ever asked an autograph of them...

Arguably the top East Indian film legend and the family he hailed from was well-known to my paternal grandfather (who was a respected Yunaini physician & pharmacist). This was just before that Hindi film legend got into acting in the 40's. My paternal Grandfather was really traditional & Old School, like Sifu Tam Sam and his family and descendants--he really disliked commercial cinema. He philosophized that movies were not true representations of a people's culture & society. Especially and ancient one like India & Pakistan.

MENG FEI still remains elusive...He doesn't have an official or unofficial website like David Chiang or Ti Lung. I wonder where his Taiwanese & Hong Kong fans write to or contact?

Maybe if we are all lucky, he might eventually find out about this thread of his and pay us all a visit...Even far more important, that he initiates contact with his son Gabriel Yang and his mother right here...

I have children of my own and I would never be able to sleep knowing that I had a child out there somewhere whom I have not seen since that child was 2-years-old...

Incidentally, have you seen The Shaolin Kingboxer (1976) with Chen Kuan Tai & MENG FEI...?

This couldn't have been Mr. David Chiang or Mr. Ti Lung, could it? I understand that both of them live in Vancouver, Canada...

Also, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if the REAL Mr. MENG FEI joins this thread sometime in the future under an alias and purposely annoys Alexandra (as this thread's starter) for some mischievous fun...MENG FEI off-screen might carry over some of that playful quality Alexandra's crazy about...She's really a sweet person. I think deep down you are fully aware of that.

Yes Slazenger. I have the movie Shaolin King Boxer. The copy I own is a decently dubbed copy. I attained it through Groung Zero, Wu-Tang Clan. It has a biographies on the main cast and crew,bonus signature fights from cast(over an hour), Interviews with Meng Fei, Liu Chai Jen and Wilson Tong. These interviews have english subtitles but are heard in the actors native tongue, mandarin. There are also many Wu-Tang features on the DVD as well.

It also has Bruce Law who starred with Fei in Secrets of the Shaolin Poles as Fong Ting. What a stellar cast. Meng Fei and Chen Kuan Tai were brilliant in their roles. Meng Fei was very reminiscent of his role in Enter The Whirlwind Boxer with his white fan and boyish smile.

A lot of people sais how beautiful and strong Ms Oropesa was and still is.

Well...Mrs. YeungLiza did captivate MENG FEI...She stated that he came looking for her.

That picture which I uploaded of the two of them says plenty...As I related the age old saying, a picture is worth (or says) a thousand words.

With all due respect, she is a hot looking lady herself. I saw some of her film clips uploaded on YouTube. Coincidentally, I share her birthday!

She and MENG FEI should have appeared in a movie together, at least once. MENG FEI displayed a real romantic flair in his intimate scenes with Filipina actress Edna Diaz in The Dragon, The Lizard, The Boxer (1977)...Some of his fight scenes with Ramon Zamora were priceless...

Also, in that film one gets a real surprise at Mr. FEI's contemporary 70's wardrobe. He's got on some pretty cool combinations which I had hoped to emulate as a kid.

Although, as I recall, when I first saw Dragon, Lizard, Boxer, I wasn't thrilled at seeing MENG FEI in a romantic role with the hot Edna Diaz. It is only 2-3 years later (when I started to "discover" girls, passing into adolescence), that I learned to appreciate the man's on-screen acting versatility as a romantic lead. From watching FEI's scenes with Edna Diaz, one can clearly understand his liking for Filipina women...I would drop a line or two about my PRE-marital interests but my wife wouldn't appreciate it AT ALL...So I'll pass.

You don't know how many fistfights I got into as a kid because of the Bruce Lees, Chen Kuan Tais and MENG FEIs...But always in self-defense or jumping in to help someone else out, even when it wasn't really any of my business. LOL. Not once do I recall being the one who started it as a kid. :wink:

Yes ma'am...That combination of Chen Kuan Tai & MENG FEI was sensational. I wonder if they did more films together?

Lau Kar Wing was terrific as well. He was one ruthless villain. I love it at the end fight when he pulls out that sword with which MENG FEI had impaled the actress upon the tree-trunk and starts to use it...Priceless. Mr. Wing's fight choreography in this film was terrific as always.

I tried to count how many times the bad guys called the characters of Chen Kuan Tai and MENG FEI--"Those bastards Chu and Ting...!"--in those horribly dubbed voice-overs...LOL.

Yes, of course, is annoying for the rest of the people to read about this science, just one more: Africa ... the only way today is DNA and language family trees, not the colour of the skin or the cranium shape. Ancient egyptians were more close to the bantu speakers than the bereberes. And Ramses II had not reddish hair, he tinted it with henna. Back to Fei Fei ....
I don't know if Chen Kuan Tai and Fei Fei starred other movies...:squigglemouth:
I noticed too this mis-spelling

Sweet, Sweet Alexandra,

With all due respect, I have to disagree with you on Ancient Egyptians being close to Bantu speakers. Believe me, they were and still ARE of Imazighen origin. I have a couple of very close PURE Egyptian family friends and they are of Amazigh descent.

I am in contact with a very small Egyptian community here, believe me...I am speaking from direct contact.

Just watch any of the Egyptian movies of the 50's/60's/70's/80's up to the present day on YouTube. Pure Egyptians are a lower Mediterranean people and NOT AT ALL Arab or Sub-Saharan[Black]. I have several Egyptian cable channels among other international channels in my satellite dish. Their movies are fun to watch.

Watch former Miss Egypts Yara Naoum, Elham Wagdi or Egyptian film stars Adel Emam, Saleh Selim, Khaled Abol Naga, etc...

Those are PURE Egyptians...Not Arab-Egyptians.

By the way, Egyptians don't pronounce the letter "J"...They pronounce and spell it as "GH" or a hard G sound...Just a little tidbit.

Omar Sharif is actually of Lebanese descent, not Egyptian--his birth name was Michel Shalhoub.

You were right about Pharaoh Ramses II's surviving hair having henna applied to it--I apply henna to my graying hair--but in-depth studies of his hair samples clearly resulted in him having auburn straight, wavy hair in his youth (as did some other pharaohs whose hair samples were also tested). He wasn't from royal stock originally, but of a rural warrior social class...

Anyway, I will not bring this up again as I don't want to go off-topic from your thread's subject : MENG FEI !

06-26-2010, 02:45 AM
here is the place for Fei Fei subjects

I did some research and so far I think The Shaolin Kingboxer (1976) was the only screen teaming of Chen Kuan Tai and MENG FEI.

Since Mrs. YeungLiza didn't respond to my question about FEI Chai being the adopted or biolgoical son of Choy Lee Fut Sifu, Tam Fei Pang, and grandson of Sifu Tam Sam, I must conclude that it was most likely a publicity stunt by the South Sea Film Company.

Mrs. Yeung did mention that FEI's biological father died when FEI was very young and he has no recollection of him. And that FEI's biological father was half-Russian. She further informed us that Mr. FEI has a younger half-brother.

We know that Sifu Tam Fei Pang was pure Chinese...So that part of my researching that title card from Young Hero Of Shaolin (1975) that stated MENG FEI as the grandson of Tsai Li Fu master Tan San[Tam Sam], turned out to be a false lead.

It doesn't lessen my respect for Mr. FEI as a Kung Fu personality, however. But it would have been something if it would have been a biographical fact.

yeungliza
06-26-2010, 04:58 PM
Mrs. Yeung,

I grew up in Los Angeles and my formative years were the 1970's...We youth didn't have any heroes to look up to from the TV shows and films back then...There were the Steve McQueens, Clint Eastwoods, Charlie Bronsons, Lee Van Cleefs, Roy Scheiders, Richard Roundtrees, Ron O'Neals, etc...

But NONE of them were the type of heroes or role models that appeal to young boys like when we came across Bruce Lee, Chen Kuan Tai, David Chiang, Ti Lung, Chi Kuan Chun, Alexander Fu Sheng, and last but not least--Meng Fei...

These guys gave us noble and honorable heroes to look up to and emulate...I think my generation was the last that had heroes of that caliber...

Look at todays "heroes" worldwide...They are all a bad joke! There are no more Bruce Lees or Meng Feis around for the youth of today...

However, I am becoming an Elizabeth Oropesa fan also...No joke. There is quite a large Filipino community here in the U.S. : FIL-AM Association of America...

That was a RARE picture I happened to have found of yourself and Meng Fei which I uploaded here...I am really shocked that there aren't MORE photos of the two of you...!

Here in the U.S. media, photos of celebrity couples are saturated....

It is INDEED a privilege that I managed to upload a photo of celebrities Meng Fei and Elizabeth Oropesa[Mrs. Meng Fei]...Without sounding ill-mannered or impertinent, Mr. Fei clearly appears to be really taken up with who and what he's looking at in that photo (I mean you, of course)...A picture says a thousand words...

Gabriel is 6-ft. 1-in.!? Man, that is tall. It is truly fascinating that you have Apache heritage as well. That is fantastic! So this means Gabriel is Filipino, Han Chinese, Apache American, and Russian! This young man has got to be very, very intelligent, indeed with that mixture. Digital Animation...Excellent. Toy Story 3 just released here in the U.S. and has already broken records for an animated feature...

I also wanted to congratulate you on your great humanitarian work for the sickly...You are truly a remarkable celebrity...Almost NO such showbiz people ever have a second career like the one you have chosen.

God bless you and your son Gabriel. We Meng Fei fans pray that Mr. Fei sees it in his heart to revive personal contact with you in the near future...A family should be together...Even if there is more than one. I was raised Muslim even though my mother's side are all Roman Catholics and I was baptized...Polygamy is lawful in Muslim religion as long as it is done with honor and respect and all families are tended to and cared for with equality--this is straight from the Koran. In the U.S., polygamy is still practiced in the Mormon Christian state of Utah...Please forgive me if I have gotten too personal, but we pray for you and Gabriel and that you are in some way reunited with Mr. Meng Fei. Gabriel looks like a strapping young man and really does look like his Dad...But taller.

Did you ever consider writing an autobiography about your life as a celebrity and as a CLAIRVOYANT...And Meng Fei's wife...? A book has lasting power...It would certainly be a bestseller!

I have one last question for you...As a recognized clairvoyant, can you foresee any reunion or even personal contact between yourself & Gabriel and Mr. Fei sometime in the future...Or is such a vision too personal for even a clairvoyant to foresee with clarity or accuracy?

I also wanted to THANK YOU profusely as a Meng Fei fan (and now an Elizabeth Oropesa fan, also) for coming out and graciously offering information about another celebrity--being a celebrity yourself. You have truly done the UNPRECEDENTED for a former showbiz celebrity!

My Filipino friends would freak out if I told them...

As I related to a friend, us men have a propensity to be self-centered and like to talk about ourselves...But women tend to be more selfless and self-sacrificing...They prefer to talk about those whom they love. As you have about Mr. Meng Fei & his son Gabriel.

Salamat.

P.S.--Viewing your public profile, I found that we share the same birthday...What a coincidence. I have the same username in IMDB and I wrote the only message board post under Meng Fei's IMDB profile. I also added some of his photographs which no one else had added. There is only the few sentences offered by a K JUNO on Mr. Fei's IMDB biography. Maybe, if or when you have some free time, you could add Mr. Meng Fei's biographical info and some more photos...Who could possibly be more qualified then yourself? IMDB is obviously the most widely viewed movie website in the world.






dear slazenger_7, there are no coincidences in life. Makes my heart glad that i'm sharing my birthday with the fan of the man I truly love. I knew a few things about Gabriel before he was born, but most clairvoyants cannot see their own future. Even if It's written in the person's fate, things can still change because of free will, God's gift to us. For example, if a man is MEANT to marry a certain woman because it was written in his hands. These will not happen if he makes the wrong decisions, goes with the wrong crowd and does the wrong things. He will end up marrying the girl he impregnated (the wrong girl) because he's a gentleman, but he got drunk when he was out with the wrong friends. The gift is also our curse. God will never impose. We will always be given the choice. The moral lesson here is to learn from our mistakes.

Boy did I make plenty! But I promise you, I learned from them.

I'm sorry, I do not mean to preach. In my clinic, I ask my patients to pray to whomever they believe could help them, as long as it's not the devil. Religion does not have anything to do with it. In our house in Taipei, there are two prayer rooms. One Catholic, and one Buddhist/Taoist. He would pray to my Jesus, I would pray to Guan yin. I also know how to pai-pai and kowtow using the joss sticks. He thought me how. We would go and hear mass to a Catholic church, and we would also go to his temple and pray. We never had a problem with that. He built my praying room without me asking for it.

He is a very sweet man. And you're right, funny without even trying. I remember very well when I was about to give birth to my son, Gabriel. While I was being wheeled hurriedly to the delivery room (my baby is halfway out) Mr. Yeung came running after me just before the door was being closed. He asked me in a very loud voice: "Mrs. Yeung!! If I pray to Jesus, will he help??" I didn't know whether I should continue screaming or laugh. I supposed I managed a quick nod, and I could hear Mr. Yeung saying "In the name of the Father! The Son! And the Holy Spirit!!" before the door closed on his face. I smiled inside and knew me and my son would be alright.

Wait! That's not the end of it! The following day, I woke up to his smiling face, telling me how big our son was, and very handsome like him. I quickly agreed because I saw my baby right after birth. Then a nurse came in looking for Mr. Yeung... the nurse said my husband have been going to the nursery talking to the wrong baby. And that she is going to bring our baby in a few minutes.

I had gas pains from laughing too much. Of course he had a valid excuse. He said: "You see Mrs. Yeung, I am always teary eyed when I look at the babies, that's why I made a mistake. But you see, when our true baby come, he will be handsomer!". Boy, do I love that man. Especially when he smiles like that. Believe me, this is all true. I gave birth at the Adventist hospital in Taipei. I'm sure he will laugh when he remembers this.

I found the thread because I've been looking to buy a copy of all his movies. My son said I should check this forum he stumbled upon. He tries to get any update about his father. I do too. I remember very well how hard he cried when a chinese friend showed us Meng Fei's picture with another woman and their baby son a few years back. All I could do was cry with him, and hold him close to my heart. I assured him that his father is a good man, and that he was truly loved when we were all together. And that's the only thing he should remember.

slazenger_7, you are very eloquent, but humble. From the way you write, I can tell that you are a good man. Your wife and children are very lucky. Always remember, there's a reason for everything. Meng Fei is also a good man. But even highly evolved souls makes a few mistakes... everybody should learn how to forgive. Again, this does not have anything to do with religion. I'm talking about love.


Buying a scanner tomorrow.

Photos will be posted as promised.

First of all, I did not mean to offend anyone in this thread. If I did I do aplologize. I am an avid fan of Meng Fei and an equally supportive fan of Elizabeth Oropesa. I think she is a beautiful, talented and caring person as a n actor, wife wife, mother and human being. Thank you MS Oropesa for coming here and setting the record straight about a few things about Meng Fei. I guess I was only going by what I read in the papers and heard from others. Some of these people were supposed to be "reliable" sources. We could not have gotten better insight about the man himself. THANK YOU again Ms Oropesa.

Meng Fei has a very interesting background indeed. Very impressive family tree. I have to go now but will check in very soon. I want to again apologize for any negative or hurtful comments I posted. I also want to thank Ms Oropesa from the bottom of my heart for sharing this insite into Meng fei's life with us. We would have never known all this . Take care of yourself and your family.

dear mengfan, nothing to worry about. I don't get easily offended. Don't change your THANK YOU'S, I think they're just fine. You are not being hurtful, I understand perfectly. I think you have a very honest personality and a big heart. THANK YOU very much.

He asked me in a very loud voice: "Mrs. Yeung!! If I pray to Jesus, will he help??" I didn't know whether I should continue screaming or laugh. I supposed I managed a quick nod, and I could hear Mr. Yeung saying "In the name of the Father! The Son! And the Holy Spirit!!" before the door closed on his face. I smiled inside and knew me and my son would be alright.

Wait! That's not the end of it! The following day, I woke up to his smiling face, telling me how big our son was, and very handsome like him. I quickly agreed because I saw my baby right after birth. Then a nurse came in looking for Mr. Yeung... the nurse said my husband have been going to the nursery talking to the wrong baby. And that she is going to bring our baby in a few minutes.

I had gas pains from laughing too much. Of course he had a valid excuse. He said: "You see Mrs. Yeung, I am always teary eyed when I look at the babies, that's why I made a mistake. But you see, when our true baby come, he will be handsomer!". Boy, do I love that man. Especially when he smiles like that. Believe me, this is all true. I gave birth at the Adventist hospital in Taipei. I'm sure he will laugh when he remembers this.

Hello Mrs Yeungliza
This story is priceless. I can imagine the situation, is absolutely incredible funny and sweet. Thank you for share with us your lovely memories.

dear Alexandra, yes I can speak a little bit of spanish, but not very good. My descendants on my mother side are spanish.
slazenger_7 is right, you are very sweet. You cannot offend anybody.
Love, yeungliza

Thanks to you Mrs Yeungliza,
It seems that my point of view concerning some writings is far different from other persons, I am a castillian speaker woman, is very hard to write all the time in english and as a latin one, I have "warm blood" so, my apologizes to all the friends here. Ah, I made a joke concerning your discovery of the thread, I am not a "personality" :smile:

I found the thread because I've been looking to buy a copy of all his movies. My son said I should check this forum he stumbled upon. He tries to get any update about his father. I do too. I remember very well how hard he cried when a chinese friend showed us Meng Fei's picture with another woman and their baby son a few years back. All I could do was cry with him, and hold him close to my heart. I assured him that his father is a good man, and that he was truly loved when we were all together. And that's the only thing he should remember.


Greetings, Mrs. Yeung!

What you related is both hilarious and heartbreaking...

Hilarious about how your husband was talking to the wrong baby...

And heartbreaking when you related how Gabriel felt when he saw the picture of his father with another family...

Again, I am at a loss of words for any further observations on the subject...

My 2nd son was born 9 lbs. 4 oz. and my wife weighed 95 lbs. before her expectancy...And he was born natural, no C-section...The little guy broke his right clavicle upon delivery...I was wondering how much did your son weigh and how big was he at the time of his birth?

Your philosophy about the Almighty and the exercising of our free will (and it's consequences) was truly inspiring...And begs further contemplation.

I said it before, and I'll say it again...I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I knew I had a child of mine out there somewhere whom I hadn't seen since that child was 2-years-old...

Thank you for replying amidst your busy schedule. I mentioned to Alexandra that I don't think there is another MENG FEI site like this one anywhere in the world...So far none of us have been able to locate a MENG FEI website anywhere...I am beginning to wonder if there even is one. I wonder how Mr. FEI gets any fan letters or emails?

By the way, Donsol, Phillippines seems like an awesome place! Whale sharks and all! That gentle giant is the largest living fish in the world!

It is interesting that Mr. FEI is religious and is either Buddhist or Daoist [or both]. This is in contrast to the late Bruce Lee...I had read The Dao Of JKD and had understood that he was pretty much a non-theist[i.e. neither a theist, nor an atheist] like Jiddu Krishnamurthy, by whom he was strongly influenced. Did Mr. FEI ever meet Bruce Lee or what did he think about him in general? I know I had stated previously--one last question...But that was impractical.

What philosophies or famous persons in general did Mr. FEI admire and was influenced by?

Salamat.

I knew a few things about Gabriel before he was born, but most clairvoyants cannot see their own future.

That sounds very interesting...May I ask what exactly did you foresee about your son?

How about Mr. FEI? Did you foresee meeting and marrying a martial arts superstar from HK or Taiwan?

Psychic abilities are a confluence of mind and spirit.

It has been said that most humans utilize only 2 % of our mind's full capability...And that geniuses such as Einstein or Edison utilize about 14 % of the human mind's full capability...

I wonder about those of us who have ever utilized 98-100 % of our mind's full capability...?

I think genuine psychics & clairvoyants (not frauds or charlatans), may be tapping into that remaining 86-98 % of the human mind which is unused...

Yes, is true, as far I know there is not other place devoted to Fei Fei, so I invite to all of you to write, discuss, share, not only in this thread but in the Social Group, this place is a nice and comfy space for share experiences, material, feelings, whatever you want in a respectful way of course. I am thinking in another place that I am designing, as a massive space (maybe in three languages) for Fei Fei. You will have news.

Right! I almost forgot about that one...I had accessed it through Google translation. So there is this ONE website.

This was an incredible find by you Asian Fury, considering nothing else beside this one is available anywhere...Seemingly nothing from mainland China, Hong Kong, or Taiwan from where it would certainly be expected.

Alexandra's MENG FEI thread has uncovered more photographs of MENG FEI than was known to be available...

And to top everything off, Mrs. MENG FEI (Ms. Elizabeth Oropesa) turns up and offers information that was not known to MENG FEI fans anywhere in the WORLD...

She has offered information that even Mr. MENG FEI himself isn't aware of...Such as how his eldest son Gabriel Yeung has been progressing and what he's been up to presently.

No MENG FEI website can lay claim to the presence of Mrs. MENG FEI (Ms. Elizabeth Oropesa), that's for sure...

But we haven't forgotten your effort with finding the Japanese MENG FEI tribute website...Thanks for that!

What has truly surprised me is that more MENG FEI fans here haven't posed any questions to Mrs. MENG FEI regarding the martial arts superstar...I mean who better than Ms. Oropesa to answer even general questions about Mr. FEI?

I mean it would be like Linda Lee Caldwell coming here to Kung Fu Cinema.com forums and answering questions about the Little Dragon which were not known to Bruce Lee fans...Except that Linda Lee wasn't ever a celebrity in her own right--just Mrs. Bruce Lee. Here, we have a major Filipina movie star--Elizabeth Oropesa--no less...Answering questions about Mr. FEI! That would be the equivalent of Demi Moore answering questions about Bruce Willis or Nicole Kidman answering questions about Tom Cruise, here in the States...

By the way, I have seen it in its entirety also...

You know I've noticed one thing, in just about every MENG FEI movie, he gets called "bastard" so many times by the English-dubbed bad guys that I wonder if Mr. FEI holds the onscreen record for a Kung Fu star?

Dear slazenger_7, when I got pregnant, I knew that my baby was a boy. I also knew what he should be when he gets older. But you see, like what I've said before, nothing is written in stone because of free will. I cannot influence him or force him to do anything he doesn't want. I can only guide him and be there for him, when he needs me. Some of the things that I saw, I didn't like. So I tried to make him avoid it from happening. This is my role as a guardian; as a mother.

Meng Fei was a fan of Bruce Lee, but would talk more about Alexander Fu-sheng, how he died, and his wife. He was a friend of Jackie Chan, and I am a devoted fan of Jackie Chan. (My husband is a very jealous man despite his good looks ) We don't talk about Jackie Chan very much.

Meng Fei's english was really bad when I met him. 90% of what he knows, he learned from me. He is a very good student, very smart. Very strong and very determined. Like what I've said before, he only saw me on TV and decided to look for me because he wanted me. He didn't worry at all about him being able to speak only very little english, I mean VERY little. He went straight to my house uninvited and told his filipino producer to tell me who he was. There was a big party in my house at that time, Fernando Poe and Dolphy were there to name a few. These are the two kings of the Philippine cinema. They were all smiling at what was happening while Meng Fei was being introduced to me. After the proper introduction, I whispered to the Filipino producer that: "I thought he was taller".I smiled because he was so full of confidence. I couldn't help but admire him. From that time on, he would wait outside my house as early as 7am with chinese food for my mother and me. Of course I would wake up lunch time and he would still be there, patiently waiting with a big beautiful smile. He would go to my shootings and not embarassed to carry my make-up kit or fan me when it's terribly hot.
Who wouldn't fall in love with a man like that? I left my family. I left my career for him. I followed him to Taiwan. Of course everybody was so shocked. My mother had a heart attack, so I had to come back. We didn't see each other for 10 years. Then all of a sudden he came back, looking for me again.
This time he didn't let me go. We got married. I lived in Taiwan for 7 years.

No slazenger, I did not see him in my dreams. I never bothered looking at my future. I did not think it was necessary, but I saw the house that he built for me in Taiwan before he even came back to look for me. I was sick at that time. and I told my best friend Jenny the details of what my future house would look like. Perhaps the reason why I did not see him is because it would not last very long.



My psychic ability is inborn. What I have did not come from any books. I don't know the difference between people who learned how to do some things that are unusual and from people like me. All I know is that I could see and talk to spirits since I was very young. They were my first playmates.

Enough about me for now.
Meng Fei's fans used to write him letters and send it to CTV. That's the television station that covered our wedding. The station would just let him know and he would pick them up. I don't know if he is 'techy' now, he wasn't techy then. Perhaps that's the reason why he is not into computers.

Believe me slazenger, anyone who will see the Whale Sharks up close would immediately fall in love with them. Their eyes are so gentle. I talk to them a lot.

Love, Yeungliza.

Hello Mrs. Yeung,

First of all, I want to thank you profusely for posting your family photos with Gabriel, yourself, and your husband, Gabriel's Dad...

Words aren't adequate to express what MENG FEI fans must be feeling viewing those wonderful family photos you provided.

When I found all those MENG FEI photos from all over the internet, I thought I struck gold until I viewed the ones you just posted. I also have a deep sense of ambivalence now in retrospect for posting them here in Alexandra's MENG FEI thread at Kung Fu Cinema Forum. I cannot imagine what your son must have felt when he viewed those photos of Mr. FEI and his other family.

Nonetheless, for any MENG FEI fan, Alexandra's MENG FEI thread is unrivalled and complete thanks to your presence.

With all due respect to Mr. Jackie Chan and his accomplishments, in my view, he NEVER came close to some of my childhood martial arts movie heroes such as Bruce Lee, Chen Kuan Tai, David Chiang, Chi Kuan Chun, Ti Lung, Fu Sheng, or MENG FEI...

They were in a class all by themselves. Its just that with the exception of Bruce Lee, the others didn't get the proper U.S.-Canada or worldwide marketing and promotion that Lee had. From research of early 70's Hong Kong cinema, your husband--MENG FEI--was a contemporary rival with the '71 & '72 HK releases of Hands Of Death[The King Boxer] and The Prodigal Boxer.

Bruce Lee was quite articulate in English which helped him tremendously in the West, plus he was a terrific self-promoter. No one MARKETED Bruce Lee better than Bruce Lee...

Up until Five Shaolin Masters, Mr. FEI seemed to be aiming for the stars...I wonder what would have happened if director Chang Cheh would have taken far more interest in him with a career with Shaw Brothers than he had...? Did Mr. FEI ever discuss his doing only the one film with Chang Cheh and Shaw Brothers?

Also, Gabriel looks so much like his Dad, I wonder how Mr. FEI would react if he saw him now? We pray that this inevitable meeting takes place soon, Inshallah[God willing]...

Your life story is truly fascinating...!

Salamat.

Dear Yeungliza
Thanks for the fantastic pictures posted! I have many questions (as all the fans) about the tragical death of Alexander Fu Sheng. We are close to the tragedy day (7 July) and for me (and of course for the others fans) is a sad day. Too many versions about how he died circulated in internet or magazines, the family never explained the awful situation and the whole thing is a fog of speculations.

I guess if Fei Fei was a fan of Fu Sheng... Well, not too many question for today. Thank you.
Hug!

Ay Dios mio... you Slazenger shot the arrow in the target. I need (really as an actress) I need to think a little bit... about which one is my favorite Fei Fei performance (I prefer to watch the performances in detail). I noticed too the replay of "bastard" word but is necessary to hear the native language and understand the exact meaning of the word used and the context where this word is utilized with the complexities of the mandarin and dialects language.
Hug!

Hello MS Oropesa. I can't help but marvel what a remarkable and honest woman you are.

You said you sense an honesty in me. I do try to be as honest as I can be because at the end of the day, I have to live with my actions ans my conscience. One can't help but marvel at what a devoted and wise mother you obviously are. Please continue to steer Gabriel away from foreseen danger, that is all that you can do. You are quite a lady. When high profile marriages end, there is so much blame and bitterness. You seem to have forgiven Meng Fei completely for any fault he may have had in the breakdown of your union. It takes a heart filled with love and forgiveness to to that.
I read your loce story with Meng Fei and I am kind of sad that such a strong and beautiful love could have gone wrong. Your pictures tell a story of a family that loved each other deeply and unconditionally.

You know Ms Oropesa, this thread has benefitted so much because of you. You have given us so much insight into Meng Fei the man, father, husband, and human being, not just the celebrety. That sort of knowledge is priceless. We can never repay you. We can only thank you from our hearts. I personally want to say THANK YOU..

How many celebrities such as yourself would give us the time of day. Yet here you are being kind to us and filling in so many Meng Fei gaps in this thread. It shows a humble and human side to you which many celebs do not posess. I will never forget this, and will always be grateful. It is safe to assume the other members feel the same way.

By the way Ms Oropesa, you created history too!!!. You were married to the most handsome kung fu/martial arts actor in Meng Fei.

All this history is giving me an idea to start a real thread on Zhou Chuan Xiong, the greatest Asian songwriter with the sweetest voice in the asian community, who produced the greatest chinese song titled Huang Hun.

I wonder what Meng Fei would think of that song. I am sure the whole chinese community has heaed that song.

I really was unconscious when I opened the thread, I only desired to make a tribute, with a space into a huge Forum, devoted to Meng Fei. I wont nothing in return. It was my admiration and appreciation for his life and career that moved me to open this space and the Social Group. In my concern, I don't mind if there are other sites devoted to him (I can't read chinese or other south east asian languages), bravo for all of them if they exist because Meng Fei deserves fansites, websites, good databases, etc. If this space, helps in any way, to show and spread to all the people the magnific career of Meng Fei, is enough for me. And of course here is Mrs. Oropesa, I am very glad for all the precious information, the touching stories about her life, is a great honour.

Hey Slazenger_7, how are you?. I cann't take the credit for being Meng Fie. The last time I checked I was a girl:smile: The reason I have such kind words for Lady Oropesa is because I have been around a lot of Celebrites and they are so full of themselves. Even if they are not, they would never give us the time of day to come to a thread and give the members the wealth of information that Yeungliza has provided about the subject of the thread. In this case, that subject being Meng Fei.

Alexandra, your site is a really amazing one. I don't think there is another site out there that has a celebrity openlly join the site without disguise. You can tell everyone that your site has the former spouse of Meng Fei as a member. That spouse being a celebrity herself, and a great humanitarian.You hold that honour.:smile.

Take care.

I am just fine Mengfan...However, can you prove that you are not really Mr. Fei incognito as Mengfan...Because from the unprecedented information Mrs. Yeung[Ms. Oropesa] provided, some of your posts in this thread point in that direction...Maybe wild speculation on my part, but I have to have proof of some sort for peace of mind...! LOL.

With all due respect, if you're not Mr. Fei, than by chance are you the other spouse of Mr. FEI...The mother of Gabriel's younger half-brother Meng Xiang[Wang Biaxiang]??

If by chance you are Mr. Yang An Tung, then at least Alexandra deserves that open acknowledgment for her being such a crazed fan of Mr. Meng Fei...Wouldn't you agree?

All anyone really wants out of all this is a reunion with Meng Fei & son Gabriel Yang Chin Long...And of course, I personally want to hear that Alexandra LITERALLY FAINTED upon this revelation...Can anyone imagine? She wasn't apparently getting along with the real Meng Fei in her own Meng Fei thread all this time...!!! Maybe only the real Meng Fei would pull something that "cheeky"...

The late, great Alexander Fu Sheng is gone from this life, so Alexandra had no chance of contacting him personally...But MENG FEI, thank God, is still around and can still be contacted, somehow, some way. This would be a coupe de grace for Alexandra and other Meng Fei fans...

By the way, when I showed Mr. Meng Fei's photos from Kung Fu Of 8 Drunkards (posted by MarsHarmony here on this thread) to some kids, they thought he made the Johnny Depps and Ashton Kutchers look like car salesmen or shoe salesmen at a mall shoe store...

Apologize for what?

Well, OK, so I have to believe that you are NOT Mr. Fei. Alexandra will be disappointed for now...But since you were the catalyst that prompted Mrs. Meng Fei to unexpectedly show up here...Maybe you can be instrumental in getting Fei Chai on board with us here, also...No matter how briefly.

Any ideas on that?

Most importantly, how to convey to Mr. Fei that a fansite of his has recent pictures of his wife & eldest son plastered all over it for the benefit of his ardent fans...Like Meng Fei fans know something about his first family even he doesn't seem to know: their CURRENT status. For a martial arts screen icon like Mr. Fei, this could even be somewhat embarrassing.

Please, for my mental health... if Fei Fei (the real) is in the Forum (is not an impossible dream) I promiss to all of you that I really (literally) die. And other promisses that I keep in mind ...in secret for now.

Hey everyone !

While I know it has been covered before ( several times maybe) but mostly in the
Social Group ...Let us (re) list our Favorite Meng Fei Movies ?

Please list any way you want to , as many as you want too ( Maybe I should not say that as I could easily list all myself LOL !!)...

But have as Main Focus " Overall Best Meng Fei movie", not only best fight , or best acting , best storyline or best quality etc.

You know more along the line of "the movie(s) we put on and watch over & over" type of thing ?

I like all , but big personal favorites are :

THE GUY WITH SECRET KUNG FU -- Just a cool (sexy ! lol)character he plays !
THE GREEN JADE STATUETTE -- Great performance !
UNBEATEN 28 -- Very charming !
5 SHAOLIN MASTERS -- Classic Shaw, Fei was underused ...
SNAKE CRANE SECRETS -- Different ...


I am looking forward to others choices !
Athena...;)

Now, the BIG question...So far, which is your favorite MENG FEI movie as opposed to your favorite MENG FEI performance?


Weeeeeeell
Just few words
Speaking strictly about acting, the best or more complete performance, in my opinion, was done in KFo8D. The wide range of expressions, both facial and corporal, are amazing.
As a charming one, I can see "glances" of good acting in Unbeaten 28.
More later

My favourite Meng Fei movies are not necessarily in order...
The Guy With The Secret Kung Fu
Shaolin King Boxer
Snake Crane Secret
Boxer's Adventure (this was hilarious)
The Prodigal Boxer
Kung Fu Od Eight Drunkards (so funny)
King Boxer (his first movie)

I forgot to add Secrets Of The Shaolin poles and The Green Jade Statuette to the list.
My personal all time favourite is Enter The Whirlwind Boxer. It was the very first movie I saw with him. Who can forget the cheeky, yet confident smile, thepearly white teeth that complimened his white robe and fan. Has anyone ever noticed his facial exxpressions during his fighting scenes?. The way he pots and curls his lips. His elegent body movements?. One can say he has his own signature style. :smile:

I meant the way he pouts his lipp. I also spell a few words wrongs. I also meant pearly white teeth and expressions.

Hello again mengfan !

Yes I totally agree with you here, his seriously amazing expressions while fighting is exactly what makes Meg Fei cool through and through.

Meg Fei is cool ...As opposed to trying to act cool (!) ...
I can think of many actors who belong in the 2ND category instead ...
Hugs to all fans ,Athena ;)

But on the bright side, Your post triggered me to start looking again !

You don't remember where you got it do you ?
Thank You Athena ...;)
