A mystery caper of devilish fun, Temptress Of A Thousand Faces proves a femme fatale can match any man in wickedness. A mysterious thief has been committing crimes across the city. Always disguised and ever elusive, woman detective Chi Ying cannot find any clues for a good lead. But her reporter boyfriend Yu Ta is always supportive and understanding. Reversing the standard role stereotypes, it is the man here who then becomes the damsel (or dude as the case may be) in distress. Constantly frustrating her police woman foil, the temptress manages to make a game of outwitting her nemesis.

A pulpy Shaw Brothers caper/spy hybrid that has jewel heists, a villain who can swap her face, henchwomen in catsuits, hidden lairs, and (of course) skillfully choreographed fight sequences. It is all super colourful and kitchy in that fun 1960s sort of way. Most of the women are awesome badasses while the dudes are clueless and incompetent. Delightfully campy.
