Snake in the Eagle's Shadow (1978) Poster

Alternate Versions

There are two English language versions: The first is similar to the Hong Kong one, whilst the second features new (copyright-friendly) music, an introductory voiceover, replaced opening credits (including changes to cast names), and re-titled 'The Eagle's Shadow'; this was for release in the US by distributor/producer Serafim Keralexis.
Two versions exist in Germany. The first was cut by ca. 3 minutes and has a "Not under 12" rating; this version was shown on TV and released on VHS by Polygram. The second version is cut even more (ca. 3,5 minutes) and has a "Not under 16" rating; this version was released on DVD by Splendid.
The UK version is cut to remove the Cat/Cobra fight as it contravenes the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937.
