This action-packed triple bill of martial arts mayhem from L&T/Ark Films arrived in Detroit on November 21, 1979.

The second feature, KUNG FU STREETFIGHTER, is DA MO WU YING QUAN, re-released in 1982 by Best Film & Video Corp. as THE TREASURE OF BRUCE LEE. The third film, MEAN KUNG FU KILLER, is HE LAN DU REN TOU, also known as AMSTERDAM CONNECTION and BIG BAD BOLO.
