Chang Cheh had his own way of launching new actors to stardom. After Ti Lung and John Chiang had found fame, Chang brought in new comers Chan Koon-tai and Wong Chung to produce the tailor-made film Four Riders(1972). It was then followed by The Savage Five which featured another new addition Danny Lee. In this testosterone-filled film, a group of bandits terrorise a remote village and its people until the five heroes come forward to rebel against the villains in a gruesome battle. Ti and Chiang continued to exude star quality and have commanding screen presence even amidst the ensemble cast.
