A romantic comedy classic in every sense of the words, Our Sister Hedy depicts the intriguing love affairs of four sisters who would easily remind one of the four female protagonists in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. But scriptwriter and director Tao Qin was clever enough to update Alcott's novel to contemporary Hong Kong in the late fifties, adding to it "one car-crash, a two-way catfight, three musical numbers and a long series of parties, around which major drama always occur" (quoted from the booking brochure of Back to Dreamland, Cathay Retrospective, organized by the Hong Kong Film Archive). The film features one of the first (and finest) performances of Julie Yeh Feng and Jeanette Lin Cui. The former gives an almost unprecedented portrayal of a nymph-like compulsive seductress in the Hong Kong cinema, whilst the latter, a tomboyish young woman who is more interested in arranging the marriages for her elder sisters than her own. The film won the Best Film Award at the 5th Asian Film Festival. Its enormous popularity prompted a sequel, Wedding Bells for Hedy in 1959.
