The Movies Of Cinema Hong Kong
This is a great dvd which comprises of 3 dvds showcasing martial arts, sword fighting and Shaw Brothers Movies. Its a great look back into the 60s, 70s of movie making, and 80s when martial arts movies are aplenty. You will see action stars like Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee and Sammo Hung, their interviews and some clips from their great movies.
