Police Story is the fifth Jackie Chan film released in 1985. You'd expect him to be flagging. If you sit around for the outtakes that unspool under the credits you'll see Jackie Chan hard at work, directing, acting, micro-managing every stunt. Chan struggles to get a shot of himself kicking a pencil off a desk and into his hand. Take after take for a scene that many distributors snipped out of the various international releases. They didn't see the value in it. Chan did. Jackie Chan is pained, on the clock and full of nervous energy. Police Story is Jackie Chan in compulsive entertainer mode. Chan isn't interested in exploring a scene from a dramatic perspective, he's focused on premises that can inform a physical exchange or feat. A throwaway scene of Chan's character Ka-Kui disappointing his girlfriend May (Maggie Cheung) becomes a death-defying near miss involving a compact with no handbrake. Compared to the films Hung was making at the same time Police Story is heavily compartmentalised with Jackie Chan using a basic law-enforcement scenario to explore a variety of genre situations.

This contemporary young adult novel is rooted in the Greek myth of the sun god, Helios, and his son Phaeton -- only this time Helios is Helen, the fiery-haired chief executive of Aethon Power & Light in Chicago. and Phaeton is Parker, her hot-headed son and only heir. The story is told through the eyes of eighteen-year-old midterm high school graduate Meg Sorenson, the daughter of an out-of-work electrician and an absentee mother.
These four men are noted as “Taken off the Wreck” on the Muster of HMS Yarmouth on 12 March 1778, five days after the destruction of the Continental Navy frigate Randolph on 7 March 1778. (NDAR, Vol 11, pages 853-4). Hantz Wortman, Ab, 1. 1. 7*.... Undoubtedly the greatest catastrophic loss for the Continental Navy during the War for Independence was the total destruction of the frigate Randolph and the loss of Captain Nicholas Biddle and over three hundred of her officers, “picked seamen”... The tragic loss of life surpasses even the loss of the 18-gun Continental sloop Saratoga three years later which disappeared from sight in an instant during a particularly severe squall on 18 March 1781 with all hands lost. Only the four Continental Navy seaman recorded on Yarmouth’s muster (ADM 36/8072) on 12 March 1778 as “Taken off the Wreck” lived to tell the story. On the 7th of March, 1778, between five and six o’clock in the afternoon, his Majesty’s ship Yarmouth (Captain, now Admiral Vincent) being in the latitude of the island of Barbadoes, and about sixty leagues to the eastward of it, the man at the...
