DEADLY ANGELS (1978) Evelyne Kraft in Shaw Bros Girls-n-Guns pic

Evelyne Kraft in the First Asian Girls-With-Guns Extravaganza

Original Cantonese Title:
QIAO TAN NU JIAO WA [International Female Detective Squad]
also known as BOD SQUAD

director: Pao Hsuen-Li
starring: Evelyne Kraft Yen Nan-Hsi Shaw Yin-Yin Dana Chin Cheng-Lan Szu Wei Hsun Nan-Kung

By all accounts, this was the first contemporary HK girls-with-guns flicks, obviously inspired by America's Charlie's Angels (ABC TV, 1976-82). Produced by the prolific Shaw Brothers, it features a collection of beautiful martial arts divas... a Hong Kong police woman, a Japanese undercover cop, Korean security agent and a British detective (played by alluring Evelyne Kraft, best known for her jungle girl character in GOLIATHON). Horror writer I Kuang (BLACK MAGIC, SEVENTH CURSE, etc) concentrates on fast-paced action, kung-fu fights and a lurid plot involving dead hookers for this story of an elite undercover female police squad trying to infiltrate a gang of jewel traffickers.

Russian-born Evelyne Kraft began making movies in 1972 with a minor role in Ferdinando Merighi's Euro thriller French Sex Murders. She followed that project with numerous German television shows and an occasional film. She answered an International Want Ad posted by Shaw Brothers in 1977 and moved to Hong Kong for a starring role in this film. It was quickly followed by GOLIATHON (MIGHTY PEKING MAN). In 1981 (after appearing in the French/Russian co-production Assassination Attempt), she married and retired from the entertainment business. Evelyne then dedicated herself to charity work in Africa with her own Nigerian construction company. Ms Kraft died in Islisberg Switzerland at age of 57 from a heart attack, January 2009.

A Hong Kong film in English language; widescreen format (16:9), uncut (84 minutes), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT. Extras include theatrical trailers.
