This "Wong Fei Hong and the Jook Lum Temple" movie was produced in 1954, Hong Kong, not 1956.
The producer was Zheng Guang Hai, who was a student of Wong Yook Gong's Kwongsai Mantis in Pingshan Town.
The tall main Mantis actor is Zheng Zhen Hua who was a Chu Gar Mantis student of Chu Kwong Hua, successor to Lao Sui (www.chugarmantis.com) whose successor is Cheng Wan Sifu aged 85 in 2009.
Chu Gar Actor Zhen Hua later became a grandstudent of Kwongsai Mantis under Wong Yook Gong.
Although, the movie calls and shows the banners of Kwongsai Mantis, the actors were Chu Gar. The film also features a prominent Hung Gar Sifu of the era who fights against Mantis in addition to Kwan Tak Hing and Shek Kin.
The movie theme is conflict between Wong Fei Hong the Jook Lum Temple. But after Shek Kin (evil Dr. Han), the villain, kowtows to both Wong Fei Hong and the abbot of the Jook Lum Temple the story ends on a high note!
It is said that the late Kwongsai Mantis Master Wong Yook Kong, 1916-1968, (kwongsaimantis.com) played a crucial role in the editing of the film and left rolls of footage on the cutting room floor.
This is the infamous movie that started the myth that Lao Sui had a student who separated and created the Jook Lum Temple stream. That myth was then widely publicized in Martial Arts of China magazine 1991. It was a myth.
The clip commonly seen here on youtube was originally posted on www.chinamantis.com in 2005.
At present, both the Kwongsai and Chu Gar Mantis are well preserved in China and Hong Kong with "museums" and shrines dedicated to each. Annual events and celebrations regularly include Kwongsai and Chu Gar Mantis side by side today.
The whole of this movie will be coming soon, along with footage of all three branches of Southern Praying Mantis in China.
