THE FLIM-FLAM MAN (1967)
THE GUNFIGHTER (1950) and
WHO IS HARRY KELLERMAN AND WHY IS HE SAING THOSE TERRIBLE THINGS ABOUT ME? (1971)

There are of course, several films from other studios, if I'm to truely complete my transition away from VHS.

Walter,

Do you know for sure that Fox currently controls THE MAN FROM HONG KONG (1975)? I have the film's U.S. theatrical poster, which does indeed sport the Fox logo at the bottom, but the last time it was aired on U.S. cable TV, back in the late 1990s on the Encore Action channel, the film was bookended by the ITC logo. I'd heard a few years ago that the current MGM company controls the films (but not the TV series) from the ITC library. Then again, that info might have been wrong, or rights holders might've changed yet again since then. A widescreen DVD of this cool Jimmy Wang Yu vs. George Lazenby action flick is pretty high on my "most wanted" list.

Does anybody here have the lowdown on who currently holds the U.S. rights to THE MAN FROM HONG KONG? Mark Edward Heuck, care to chime in on this? :)
