Duel for Gold (US: Huo bing ) is a 1971 Hong Kong martial arts film directed by Chor Yuen and produced by Shaw Brothers Studio, starring Ivy Ling Po, Lo Lieh, Chin Han, Wang Ping, Tsung Hua and Chen Chun. The screenplay was written by Ni Kuang.
Six swordsmen, including two sisters and their husbands, a ranger and a security man, are after millions of taels of gold stored in a secure vault in Datong Prefecture, and betray and outwit each other during their quest.
Two sister acrobats, Meng Yu Yieh (Ivy Ling Po) and Meng Yu Ying (Wang Ping), arrive in a town known to be rich in silver and gold. They do street performances and dangerous sword stunts until Yieh is apparently injured. In the emergency they are taken into the nearby treasury house. Chief treasury guard Wen (Richard Chan Chun) determines her injuries are fake and a fight ensues.
The film's original Mandarin title was Huo bing, its Hong Kong Cantonese title was Fo ping and the working English language title Thieves Fall Out. After release the film's worldwide English subtitled version was titled Duel for Gold.
