A frame from the 1971 movie The Ghost Sword starring Chiang Nan (left). Note the Youtube link to this scene [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkK9qzcjMjg ]. The two-tined fork is one of two weapons being wielded by the same opponent – he is also holding the short handled double crescents halberd (immediately to the right of and slightly behind the fork) in his right hand. Sadly, neither the holder, halberd nor the fork distinguish themselves in the skirmish. Now if the movie had been named The Ghost Fork

As far as I know, Chiang Nan is still alive (95! – so he was 48 at the time of the filming) although he has not been active as an actor, director or producer in many years (1981).
