Film programmer at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon (the Indiana Jones of film archivists) Dan Halsted, presents the only known 35mm print of this martial arts masterpiece! 

 A kung fu teacher sets out to prove he is the greatest fighter by finding and defeating the 7 Grandmasters. One by one, he fights their wide variety of animal styles (tiger, leopard, mantis, monkey,etc.) He also puts a young student through elaborate training, and is followed by a mysterious villain in a weird hat. Featuring multiple silver-haired villains with huge sideburns and maniacal laughter, plus the best monkey-style kung fu fight ever put on film. Directed by the great Joseph Kuo, this is one of the greatest kung fu movies of all time.
