Mystery Movie solved! THE SWORD AND THE CLAW (1983)
Three and a half years ago we put up a Mystery Movie post about THE SWORD AND THE CLAW, the main feature on a martial arts triple bill from William Mishkin Motion Pictures that opened on August 26, 1983 at the Rialto I on 42nd Street. What we thought was a kung fu movie actually turned out to be the wacky Turkish action-adventure flick KILIÇ ASLAN (1975), better known as LION MAN, which was a Movie Ad of the Week just a month or two back. Big thanks to Sebastian del Castillo of the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) for helping us with this one.
