Movie Ad of the Week: TREASURE OF THE GOLDEN COBRA (1984)

Taking a break from their long run of Shaw Brothers acquisitions, World Northal launched the stateside release of Antonio Margheriti's I CACCIATORI DEL COBRA D'ORO in New York City as THE HUNTERS OF THE GOLDEN COBRA in March 1984. Four months later the movie turned up in Jackson, MS on July 13th, 1984 as TREASURE OF THE GOLDEN COBRA, with the new title pasted onto the existing one-sheet (see below). The second feature was SHOGUN WARLORD, the 1981 re-release of the really weird Shaw Brothers-Wolf C. Hartwig merger VIRGINS OF THE 7 SEAS, which Film Ventures had first released in the U.S. as THE BOD SQUAD and we reviewed here. In theater one, an Italian muscleman pic from Cannon, THE SWORD OF THE BARBARIANS, which has never been released on home video in the U.S.
