The Armour Of God Poster Original Daybill 1986 Kung Fu Jackie Chan
Rare Daybill Poster. Armour of God is a 1986 Hong Kong action-comedy film written and directed by Jackie Chan, who also starred in the film. The film co-stars Alan Tam, Lola Forner and Rosamund Kwan. The film features Chan's kung fu, comedy and stunts, with an Indiana Jones-style theme and deemed a cult classic. Chan came the closest he has ever been to death in this film during a relatively routine stunt. During a second take (after a successful first) he leaped onto a tree from a ledge, but the branch he grabbed snapped, sending Chan plummeting 5 metres and cracking his skull on a rock which forced a piece of bone up into his brain. As a result, he now has a permanent hole in his head filled with a plastic plug and slight hearing loss in one ear. Footage of the accident is shown during the film's ending credits. Commercially and critically Armour of god was a success. The film was the highest-grossing film in Hong Kong at the time.
