  1. Hi guys,

    I have two answers for two questions, which were asked in the last episode + an extra mention about ”snakes” in Bruceploitation

    1. The first question was if there is any other film in which the Bruce chracter has a child besides of ”Bruce Lee In New Guinea”. I know only one other film: ”Cobra” with Steve Lee / Steven Lee (an indian guy also billed as Bruce Lei, real name is unknown). In that film he has a wife and a daughter . Some crooks trow the girl through a window and then she transforms into a puppet a falls down.

    2. The second question, was asked by your last gast chris. Besides of ”Bruce Strikes Back” a.k.a. ”Ninja Strikes Back”, there is another Bruceploitation film with Harold ”Oddjob” Sakata. The alternative longer version of ”The Chinese Stuntman”, released as ”Counter Attack”, has an extra scene in which Oddjob is hired to kill Bruce Li. In this scene ís a little Oddjob.

    3. When you talked about snakes, you missed a very trashy snake appearence. In ”Bruce, The Super Hero” Bruce Le fights Chiang Tao / Kong Tao and Tao has a goofy snake arm with a snake head. One of the craziest moments in Bruceploitation Cinema.

    1. A snake arm with a snake head? Well, “Bruce, The Super Hero” is now on the Youtube watch list – and the Dynamo BluRay top of the wishlist.

      This movie is hokey, but really entertaining. The Ho Chung Tao (Bruce Li) vehicles on the podcast are now almost done with on the Brucesploitation side, however, I feel he deserves a hat tip (a non-Oddjob one) for the good range of characters in his movies. I find the stories where he’s not playing an attempted imitation far more enjoyable.

      ‘The Man The Myth’ is probably top, but he also diversified into being ‘Bruce’s brother’ (Fist Of Fury II/III), ‘That guy who looks like…you know!’ (Dynamo, Chinese Stuntman), and I really enjoy the slightly darker titles like “The Iron Dragon Strike Back/Gold Connection” and “Deadly Strike”. Some of these were a bit let down by the censors in the UK – Fist Of Fury II is pretty obvious, and Deadly Strike was horrifically chopped to pieces in the UK DVD version I had.

      Anyway, thanks very much for keeping these podcasts going, guys! It’s always been a pleasure to give them a listen over the last few years (!) It really adds to the enjoyment of the films – even peerless titles like “Bruce Lee In New Guinea”.
