In Monterey, the good-natured bankrobber Dakota (Lee Van Cleef) wants to relieve Uncle Wang of his fortune, but all he finds in his safe is four photographs of Wang's mistresses' asses and a fortune cookie. But what's even worse, when attempting to open one of Wang's safes, Wang runs right into the explosion and dies, even though Dakota tried to stop him ... and for that, Dakota is arrested for murder (which he didn't even commit) and sentenced to a hanging.

Meanwhile in China, a warlord, learning about Wang's death, artrests Wang's family and tries to force them to tell him where Wang's fortune is, which was actually only a loan he wants returned. Since the family doesn't know,it is decided to send one of them, the fierce and courageous fighter Wang Ho (Lo Lieh) to Monterey to try and retrieve the money ...

In Monterey, Wang Ho has himself arrested at first to speak to Dakota face-to-face, and after Dakota has convinced him he didn't kill Uncle Wang (in the true sense of the world), Wang Ho saves Dakota from the gallows, and now the hunt begins for the four asses on the photographs, which each contains one fourth of a Chinese scripture leading to the money.

The first ass is that of Wang's American mistress (Erika Blanc), who is married to crooked preacher Yancy Hobbitt (Julián Ugarte) - and therefore wears a chastity belt -, who needs a little convincing before he lets his wife show her bottom to the two men. Unfortunately though, Hobbitt is quick in putting two and two together and he soon figures out that the secret to Wang's fortune is hidden on the four mistresses' asses, and thus he goes after our heroes.

The second ass is that of Wang's Russian Mistress (Patty Shepard), the wife of rich casino owner Paradine. So Wang Ho, genius mathematician, figures out a way to foretell the numbers at roulette to blow up the casino's bank. Paradine is devastated, so when Wang Ho wants a peek at his wife's ass in exchange for his winnings, Paradine is more than happy to oblige (his wife less so). However, there is no tattoo on her butt, but on the butt of her promiscuous twin sister, who shows her butt to anyone for a tenner, and encourages people to sign her ass as well ...

The third tattoo is on the ass of Lord Barclay's (George Rigaud) wife (Femi Benussi), but Barclay is so rich he can even afford his own train, so how to convince him to let Wang Ho take a peek at the butt of his wife ?

Pretty easily, actually, as Wang Ho poses as a physician from the east healing her migrane by accupuncturing her behind ...

Wang's fourth mistress is Chinese Lia Hua (Karen Yeh), and when Wang ho stops by her place, he is warmly welcomed by her and her father, so out of courtesy he dares not ask her to show him her butt. And actually, Wang ho has also fallen in love with her ...

But unfortunately, Hobbitt has since caught up with Wang ho and Dakota, and soon enough he, supported by a gang of Mexican gangsters, kidnaps her and kills her father. It all ends in a big shoot-out - that also involves a machine gun - and martial arts fight between our heroes and Hobbitt and his men, at the end of which only Wang Ho, Dakota and Lia Hua are left standing.

And Uncle Want's fortune ?

It turns out that Wang has hidden it in a statue and sent it back to the Warlord in China long ago, in the shape of stocks in a railroad company - the value of which has since multiplied ...

 

Blood Money is an easy-to-like blend of Eastern and Western, directed by Antonio Margheriti with great attention to detail and competently staged action (and as much could be expected from Margheriti), and the involvement of Shaw Brothers as co-producers secured for decent martial arts and beautiful authentic Chinese sets and first rate Oriental actors. That's not to say Blood Money is the best film ever, in fact it's well-made, well-played ... but hardly remarkable. At the same time though it's good, basically harmless entertainment.
