Join us on Saturday, August 1st at 6:15pm PDT/9:15pm EDT as we team with 36 Chambers for a livestream of The Man from Hong Kong. Dan Halsted—head programmer at the Hollywood Theatre—and Brian Trenchard Smith—film writer, author, and director of The Man From Hong Kong—will provide live commentary during this special presentation.
THE MAN FROM HONG KONG (1975) – When Australian police discover a massive drug smuggling ring with connections to Hong Kong, they fly in master crime-fighter Jimmy Wang Yu (MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE) to take care of business. What follows are fight scenes, white-knuckle car chases, and hair-raising stunts. George Lazenby (former James Bond) plays the villain, and he’s a mustachioed expert of martial arts. This movie is filled with non-stop excitement and wild stunt work (coordinated by Sammo Hung and Aussie wild man Grant Page, the stuntman behind MAD MAX).
