Shaw Brothers on DVD – “Sword Masters: Death Duel”


Well Go USA returns to it’s Shaw Brothers releases under its Sword Masters series banner with Death Duel. This old school wuxia film was originally released in 1977. The release is set for January 28, 2014.

Death Duel / 三少爺的劍 / Sān Shào Yé Dè Jiàn stars Derek Yee. Directed by Chu Yuan.

Synopsis: This martial arts spectacular showcases 20-year-old Erh Tung-sheng (a.k.a. Derek Yee). Even Variety noted: “Erh’s charismatic screen presence should take him to superstardom like his older brother, David Chiang.” The prediction proved correct, and his performance as ace swordsman Third Master is just what any producer would want. He fights evil, saves damsels in distress (including a kindhearted prostitute played by Chow Yun-fat’s first wife, Yu An-an), and duels rival swordsmen to the, well, death. Via HK Cinemagic
