Good morning! I tell ya, I think someone should create a series of videos similar to this that ridicule all those familiar cinema archetypes we talk about so often... there might be a goldmine there. Thank me later, whoever you are :)

I wrote about this 1961 British film exactly a year ago, July 2010, on the old S & A website, and now it's been announced that it's coming out for the first time on DVD on Sept. 20, through VCI Entertainment (in it's original 2:35 Scope aspect ratio). I thought I would go back and repost what I said about it a year ago, since I think it's a worthwhile, but largely overlooked and forgotten film that deserves to be seen.

Been awhile since there's been any news about this project - RZA's feature directorial debut, The Man With The Iron Fist. Principal photography ended earlier this year, but we haven't seen anything of it; no stills, no clips, no nothing. So, as of right now, I don't think anyone knows what this baby is going to look, sound and feel like. Even plot revelations have been slim, other than the official synopsis.
