Original U.S. 23x35 Poster Folded Fine Plus Condition starring Yuen Siu-tien
As best we can grasp, this is a U.S. poster for the film MEAN DRUNKEN MASTER (1979) starring Yuen Siu-tien aka Simon Yuen. In the world of martial arts movies, posters for different distributors, or even distributors who erroneously or even illegally distributed movies, can be confusing. Yuen, however, had a long career in the Hong Kong film industry, and we feel certain that this poster is connected to one of his films, probably the 1979 movie. In any event, we have not seen this poster previously. MovieArt Austin purchased the contents of a theater that played many of the more obscure martial arts films. Most of these films were made in Asia. While online databases can give some information about the films and about the distribution for the films in the U.S. it is also true that some of the lesser known films can have sketchy information. Most of the posters that we acquired were, as we have said, theater-used, folded, and should be regarded as average-used conditions. When a posterÕs condition exceeds this standard, we have said so and also we have stated when a poster has problems that exceed this. What we do know about these posters, including this one, is that all of these posters are vintage and authentic U.S. posters for these films. Sometimes the size may vary from standard one-sheet size, and we will so state when that is the case. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
