Thanks for the heads-up on PEKING OPERA BLUES, one of my favorite movies. I still remember leaving the theater grinning ear-to-ear the first time I saw it. Did they finally include the text coda at the end? My DVD ends on a textless freeze frame.

Where did you get NAKED KILLER on Blu-ray? I can't find it anywhere online.

Sorry but I mistyped NAKED KILLER - it should have been NAKED WEAPON (perhaps wishful thinking sad.gif ) - now corrected in my original post.

There is a pre-order at Amazon UK for Naked Killer August 2011 claiming to be uncut for the first time, I dunno. There were two UK Hong Kong Legend DVDs, one retail and the other magazine cover mounted which may or may not have been different versions to each other, and according to BBFC 2002 both were 'no cuts' although different running time are listed of 92m 37s and 93m. This new version has an Amazon listing of 92m.

Here the British Video Association has the DVD at 96m but that might be the 24 fps without PAL speed-up?

How many of those blues are region-less and if not they would be region A or C?

From a vague memory of spinning them all, most HK Blues are region free (Yay!) but if not were Region A. Please check though!
