double bill part 2 - lots of guts
And the second film was BOXER FROM SHANTUNG, part of the Heroic Grace 2 series at the Cinematheque Ontario. The print was stunning, looking like it was fresh from the lab. Sadly, there was only around 30 or so people. Not too sure what was up with that, but hopefully the numbers will get better as the series progresses. And last night was KING BOXER, and equally beautiful print. We even got an extra treat as a friend of the Fu from Montreal, King Wei, brought along the original trailer for OPIUM AND KUNG FU MASTER which the projectionist lovingly threaded up. And what better reason then to share the two pics of the original posters from my collection. Enjoy.
