1962 / B&W / D Beta / Cantonese / 96min
What started as a petty feud over singing styles becomes a full-on power struggle between dim sum restaurant waiter Chan Chiu (Sun Ma Si-tsang) and dim sum girl Lin (Lam Fung). All too happy to be caught in the middle is their landlady (To Sam-ku), whom both Chiu and Lin are trying to impress for favoritism. The two ultimately learn to put aside their differences and make up when they realise the feud is giving them nothing but trouble. In the end, Chiu even gets to meet his idol (not-socoincidentally also played by Sun Ma Si-tsang) and becomes his disciple!
