The East Meets the West Ep. 1 – Five Deadly Venoms & The Stranger and the Gunfighter

Welcome to the premiere of The East Meets the West podcast!! Here we are on a journey to learn about the Shaw Brothers and their amazing film productions from Hong Kong, particularly Kung-Fu Films, and the genre known as Spaghetti Westerns – western movies produced mainly in Italy – Both from the 1960s to the 1980s! Together we will explore the amazing and fascinating movies of these two genres and decades!

In this first episode, hosts Re-Gor and Spency Domepiece discuss the Shaw Brothers film the Five Deadly Venoms from 1978 and the spaghetti western The Stranger and the Gunfighter from 1974. Venoms is one of the most popular kung-fu films of the 70s, and Stranger is a co-production of some European companies and the Shaw Brothers, so this is a great way to ease into both genres!!

Sit back and enjoy as the films and histories are discussed!
