Crippled Masters (1979)


The Crippled Masters is a kung fu movie released in 1979. Filmed in Hong Kong, it is about two men—one without arms and another with withered legs—who develop kung fu abilities and fight their evil teacher, who made them disabled. Two sequels were released but have little to no connection to each other.
The movie starts out with Lee Ho getting both of his arms chopped off by the white-faced henchman known as White, while another man named Tang supervises. It is declared that Lee Ho has betrayed his master, Lin Chang Cao, the boss of the Pluahchi organization, and thus his punishment is justified. Tang is congratulated for carrying out his master’s orders and is praised for his loyalty.

Love and Bullets (1979) – Charles Bronson


Love and Bullets is a 1979 film directed by Stuart Rosenberg. Starring Charles Bronson, it is based on a screenplay by Wendell Mayes (writer of the 1974 film Death Wish) and John Melson.

The film was originally to have been directed by John Huston and advertisements were taken out in Variety to promote this fact. Huston apparently did film some scenes but walked off the set after disagreements with the producers. Veteran director Rosenberg stepped in on the troubled production. The resulting movie received almost-unanimously poor reviews.

Scavenger Hunt (1979)


I loved this movie as a kid. It begins with an eccentric game inventor, played by Vincent Price, dying and having his will executed. His will stipulates that the winner of an elaborate scavenger hunt will inherit his estate. The various, potential beneficiaries form teams and each team gets involved in hilarious misadventures along the way. Mildred Carruthers (Cloris Leachman), her attorney (Richard Benjamin), and her son Georgie (Richard Masur) make up the funniest team. Enjoy.

La Luna, also known as Luna, is a 1979 Italian film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci and starring Jill Clayburgh. This controversial film concerns the troubled life of a teenage boy and his relationship with his parents, especially his mother. The relationship turns incestuous as each deteriorates and spiral downward. Watch for a nude Jill Clayburgh about half way through the movie.
