A lost classic from the early days of the Chan films.
21 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I can't help but search anywhere and everywhere I can for this film or at least some stills from it. This is one of 4 Chan films that are believed to be lost. I hope that this becomes a case such as some silent films that were believed to be lost but then a print was found. I would like to see this lost classic from the early days of the Chan series recovered and restored.
