Seattle Double Feature and The Taking of Reels 1-2-3

Me and Black Rob invaded Seattle this last weekend with a carload of film to put on a Kung Fu Double Feature. The theater was filled to capacity with an energized audience, Eagle's Shadow brought the house down, and I think a couple people even liked Devil Woman. Before the show we met up with a couple of wild ass print collectors including a guy whose house is literally filled with film. The highlight was the collector who pulled some kung fu odd reels out of a closet to sell to us. The exploitation movie gods smiled upon us and we realized that the reels 1,2, and 3 matched a reels 4 and 5 we've had for a long time. Another Ng See Yuen/Woo Ping classic is saved! We set up the hand rewinds in the hotel room to inspect the fu. Check the photos (click on them for in-your-face action)
