The film that cemented Jackie Chan's iconic status as an action hero unlike any other pack a punch and brings a belly laugh in this eye-popping presentation taken from the original negatives! In turbulent China before World War I, the collapse of the Manchu Dynasty fuels violent uprisings and political chaos--the perfect setting for a grand-scale smuggling ring led by an unscrupulous British consul. When the ring plots to steal China's crown jewels only one man, legendary "Drunken Fist" master Huang Fei-hung (Chan), possesses the courage and ferocity to stop the ruthless gang. Contains three different audio tracks, the original Cantonese language track, Mandarin and English. *Note* This new high definition master taken from the original camera negative offers the option of the original English subtitles that appeared on theatrical prints in Hong Kong, as well as other venues, and contain the spelling and grammatical errors as seen at the time. Also offers English SDH sub-titles.

Huh. I wonder how Warner ended up with this. DM2 was a Miramax owned Jackie IIRC.

aspect ratio 2.40:1 … finally correct
original Cantonese language track, Mandarin and English … Cantonese, correct
original English subtitles containing the spelling and grammatical errors as seen at the time... correct
if completely uncut (Which is exactly what one expects from WAC) , this should be a perfect release.

just waiting on a pre-order to go live, the final showdown is of one of the greatest acrobatically feats put to film.

Golden Harvest chief in $101m row​

Per the South China Morning Post in 1999:
https://www.scmp.com/comment/opinion/article/3128134/why-im-sitting-out-xinjiang-cotton-boycott
Golden Harvest boss Raymond Chow Ting-hsing has been accused of flouting a $101 million loan deal with Chase Manhattan Bank after the entertainment company sold its film library and rights to Warner Brothers for US$25 million.
The bank is suing for damages.
It has also filed wind-up petitions against the controlling company of the Golden Harvest Group, WFC Holdings and Panasia Films Production.

The Warner Archive Podcast discussed this aquisition a few years ago.
