MOVIES I LOVE - Master of the Flying Guillotine (1975)
I vaguely remember seeing this movie on the Saturday afternoon "Kung-Fu Theater" on channel 5 here in NY.....but I never forgot the the Yo-Yo saw....I finally tracked down this movie on DVD....and it may be my favorite Kung-Fu movie.....It has everything you need...
A one armed hero....who can walk on the wall and ceilings
A crazy blind monk who uses a giant saw blade Yo-Yo to kill people.
A tournament...(fight to the death)...that pairs off 20 of the deadliest fighters in Asia...
Also the video game Street Fighter stole a bunch of characters from this movie...most prominently.. Dhalsim
Lastly the soundtrack makes the movie.....the Guillotine Master march music is just sick..
