Old School Kung Fu Masters

I haven't posted here forever, but to read and see photos from my unearthing of a massive collection of 35mm old school kung fu prints, go here. You'll see photos like this:

Don't miss out on the Old School Kung Fu Masters film series I'm currently putting on. Tonight is the second movie in the series, Shaolin Vs. Lama. It's one of the best kung fu movies of all time, and the print is in pristine condition (seriously, it could pass for a new print). Watch a drunken kung fu master teach the "Buddha finger" technique to fight back against the non-stop vicious assaults of the villainous Tibetan Lama (not a llama). The other films in the series will be Fatal Flying Guillotine, Invincible Shaolin, and another screening of Seven Grandmasters. The first film was 36th Chamber of Shaolin this last Saturday, if you missed it, hang your head in shame.

Oh yeah, this is what it's all about. I've wanted to show this movie forever, but there were no known 35mm prints. Last month I found a film collector who had dug a print out of a dumpster behind a movie in the late 70's. It sat in his basement ever since, until he sold it to me. The print is in excellent condition, and this is one of the top five kung fu movies of all time! This is Joseph Kuo's masterpiece, and that's saying a lot for the man who also directed Mystery of Chessboxing, 18 Bronzemen, and Born Invincible. The movie is pure, non-stop kung fu mayhem, with all the best old school sound effects, fighting styles, martial arts weapons, and silver-haired villains with huge sideburns and maniacal laughter. It also features the best monkey-style kung fu fight in movie history.

Saturday June 27th at 7:45 on the Hollywood Theatre's 50 foot screen. I don't care where you live, don't miss this!
