snake in the eagle’s shadow (1978)

End fight scene from Jackie Chan’s 1978 breakthrough. Craziest foley and 70s soundtrack: As well as original music by Chou Fu-liang, the original version of the film features Jean Michel Jarre’s “Oxygène (Part 2)” and Space’s “Magic Fly”. Like many Hong Kong movies of the era, it also includes samples from western movie scores, including A Fistful Of Dollars, You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, and even the Death Star explosion moment from Star Wars.  The English subtitles over (different) English dubbing are great, too.

The full movie is on Youtube, HERE, but if you’re in South Africa, like me, you won’t be able to watch it due to copyright nonsense.
