Hopefully good news - this film will be released on R1 DVD by BCI on March 4. Fingers crossed that it will be better than the German disc:
After the spectacular success of Enter the Dragon in 1973 many Western producers realized the potential of incorporating chinese kung fu with their adventure films.
Producer Stenio Fiorentini of Italy enlisted the cooperation of Hong Kongs largest film studio the Shaw Bros. and secured the services of their contract actor Yueh Hua to join a trio of actors that formed the Supermen.
Set back in an ancient time when Greek cultur ruled the world,the story deals with the conflict between a race of warrior women, the villagers whom they hold in bondage the three men who dedicate themselves to setting them free.
A Caucasian named Aro (Nick Jordon), Tago,a giant son of Africa (Marc Hannibal), and the Oriental,Chang (Yue Hua) take on a whole army of Amazons using their amazing agility, knowledge of martial arts and their ability to invent strange machines of war, the heroes proving themsleves to be a match for the warrior women.
Filmed entirely in Itay,Amazons and Supermen enjoyed great box office the world over.
The Shaw Bros. were so confident in it's result they set forth with another co-production with Hammer Studios of England called Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires in the same year.
