Nicholas Tse Ting Fung in the film THE BULLET VANISHES (SIU SUT DIK JI DAN) played a hot blooded detective who while in pursuit of a robber who targeted prostitutes jumped from the second floor without any hesitation.
When Ting Fung saw how high the jump would be he could not help but laugh. "I have to jump again? No!" Finally he still personally performed the stunt. In order to display the impact, when Ting Fung landed he threw his body toward the stone wall then limped along as he ran. He landed too hard twice and ran into the cobblestone road. The crew was worried that he was injured. Yet the director did not relent and asked for more takes. During the break Ting Fung also vomited. He was on the wire for over 20 hours and could not catch his breath. This shot took over 3 hours. Ting Fung jumped 9 times but he never complained.
