The Ultimate Guide to Martial Arts Movies of the 1970s dives deep into the decade that brought martial arts cinema to the masses.

This dynamic guide launches into “martialogies” of 500-plus films, including such classics as Five Deadly Venoms, The Big Boss, Drunken Master, and the Lone Wolf and Cub series. Each martialogy is filled with humor and contains a concise plot summary, behind-the-scenes reel and real history, fight statistics, insights into martial arts choreography and style, and other surprising factoids about each title.

The second part of The Ultimate Guide to Martial Arts Movies of the 1970s is a complete index that lists more than 2,000 actors and movies by all their English variations. It also includes an index for movies by country of origin.

Written by a martial artist and movie fan for martial artists and movie fans, The Ultimate Guide to Martial Arts Movies of the 1970s is an accurate resource, fun read and excellent steppingstone into the world of kung fu movies.

Dr. Craig D. Reid is one of America’s most respected martial arts film historians and critics. In 1979, he became the first regular Caucasian and American stuntman in Chinese kung fu movies and kung fu TV soap operas in Taiwan. Since then, he has accrued credits as a screenwriter, fight choreographer, kung fu scholar, television personality, and university and guest martial arts lecturer.

“Calling this comprehensive encyclopedia The Ultimate Guide to Martial Arts Movies of the 1970s is an apt description. Like the treasure trove of the 500-plus titles it celebrates, the book is a feast.” – John Fusco, screenwriter of The Forbidden Kingdom (2008)
