Who wouldn’t want to see a movie with a title like that?
This classic kung-fu film (1979) has lots of beautifully choreographed fights, and almost no wire work.
Unfortunately, it was apparently copied from a video tape kept in someone’s sock drawer for many years. Smeary and distorted, and despite being letter boxed, the ratio is still slightly off.
The music is, oddly enough, lifted from “Hang ’em High”! This could tangentially relate to the main villain looking remarkably like Freddy Fender.
I wish I could find out who the woman in the film is–despite having roles in most fights, and most of the lines, it isn’t clear which of the non-starring roles she is.
If this film could be restored, it would be a must see.
