One-Armed Swordsman is a 1967 martial arts film. It's a Hong Kong movie -by Shaw Brothers Studio- directed by Chang Cheh. It is an example of the wuxia sub-genre. It stars Jimmy Wang.

watch it here: says,
it’s not hard to see why audiences flocked to the theater back in 1967. This film is a rousing crowdpleaser, introducing perhaps the first handi-capable hero in movie history.
DVD Verdict says it's not a classic despite its influence, but that it "is a clever and thoughtful film in some ways and, of course, there is camp appeal." Hong Kong Cinema says, "One Armed Swordsman's place in history is assured. ... this is where it all began in its primitive violent form."
