I hadn't heard of that book, but it sounds very interesting. What are the most obvious omissions?
So far - Knockabout, Warriors Two, Last Hurrah For Chivalry, Buddhist Fist, Hapkido. But it has got some obscure US, Japanese and Indian titles in also. Only read a bit of it so far but am very impressed and well glad I have it. It's a lovely book and It's highly recommended. It gives info for each film inc a synopsis as well as cast etc and alternative titles. it includes chinese characters of the titles also. Added to this a large number of colour stills. it's really nicely done.
I was familiar with Dr. Craig Reid from the kungfumagazine.com forum and his part in Red Trousers (w/ Robin Shou). He's a friend of John Kreng also. Be good to see if Stoo and the POF guys could interview him or something.
Well worth £15.
