This list is extremely incomplete. I am expecting that I will hear from everyone with Corrections and additions. Anyone with a Soap Opera List should get it to me to add here. The information in Chinese Big 5 was taken out as my editor was continually corrupting it. I'll try to do a downloadable chinese list shortly.

Kari's "blink and you miss him" List
  1. Bruce Lee: The Legend -- this documentary has some footage from the filming of Game of Death, showing Sammo and Biao rehearsing -- Sammo os getting him to kick like Bruce Lee, but Biao gets the giggles. there's also some footage from behind the scenes on Prodigal Son, but only Biao's ear appears (there is a nice clean shot of Dick Wei and Lam Ching-Ying).
  2. Dragon Lord -- someone who looks a lot like Yuen Biao is in the background holding a broom in the fight outside the temple.
  3. Crazy Tiger, Dirty Frog he turns up as a thug who gets into a fight with one of the leads (I forget which -- this film is so bad I watched it in fast-forward) in a restaurant. he's in the background with a seriously bad hair cut (greasy and slicked sideways across his forehead).
  4. Enter the Fat Dragon -- he's one of the gang of youths who keep breaking up Sammo's uncle's cafe. No lines and no close-ups, but you can see him quite clearly in several places in the fights in the cafe. My favourite moment is the way he looks round to check there's no-one in the line of fire before throwing a table! (Oh, he's sooo evil...)
  5. Carry On Pickpocket -- he doubled the acrobatics and stunts for Dick Wei in the end sequence.
  6. Prodigal Son -- yes, I know he's the star, but he also doubled Frankie Chan for the high kicks and acrobatics in the central fight against Lam Ching-Ying, and is fairly easy to pick out. What I want to know is who did the acrobatics for Frankie Cahn in the final fight. it isn'gt Lam Ching-Ying, he's too small not to be noticeable. I am guessing it was actor/stunt man Chong Fat (who plays one of Frankie's evil henchmen) but I don't know.
  7. The Victim -- he stunt-doubled the villian (Chang Yi, as I recall) but is real hard to spot -- you have to go on body shape and acrobatic skill.
  8. Warriors Two -- he appears in a white wig and eyebrows as one of a pair of sword-wielding two guards near the end of the film; he also crops up in the background of some earlier fights (as does Lam Ching-Ying). Plus he did the acrobatics and spin kicks for star Casanova Wong, and can be seen in a few shots as a result.
  9. Snuff Bottle Connexion -- stunt work only, he turns up in most of the fights, but heavily disguised. No lines and no close-ups. Corey has a dying 'ugh' near the end of the film, too.
  10. Heroes of Shaolin -- he plays one of the grandchildren of the villain (the other two being Corey, and Lung Jung Er) and appears in several scenes. He has a few lines, as well as two fights against the younger of the two leads, and one against a group of soldiers. He also stunt-doubles Lung Jung-Er in her fights.
  11. Invincible Armour -- (one of my favourites!) he turns up several times as a stunt man, notably in the teashop scene (in which he getskilled twice, once with a hat, once without). Towards the end he and Corey Yuen Kwai have small roles as outlaws hindering the hero, and a very good fight scene against the leads. he gets a flashy red costume, silly hair (but not as silly as Corey's) and two swords. I love this film, it's so ridiculous.
  12. The Valiant Ones -- he's one of the fighters who challenges swordsman Bai Ying in the pirates' den; almost no lines, but a short featured combat. Yuen Wah is in the same scene, Corey turns up earlier in a silly hat.
  13. Master With Cracked Fingers -- he can be seen in the background in the sequence in which Jackie Chan has a fight on a dock front. No lines, and looking very young.
  14. Shaolin Wooden Men -- plays a thug who works for the main villain, and first appears about 1/2 into the film in a teashop scene, bullying Lung Jung-Er. He turns up again in a few later scenes. He has a few lines of the sneering bad-boy type, and two costume changes (which is one more than anyone else).
  15. Game of Death 1 & 2 -- acrobatci stunt double and also double for some car stutns. You can see his face briefly in the dressing room fight in G of D 1, but he has no close ups.
  16. Enter the Dragon -- in the line of practising students when Bruce and co. arrive, and again very briefly in the final outdoor fight. No lines, no close-ups.
