David Decoteau on

Released 1975
Distributor New World Pictures

“You’ll know you’ve been kissed by her ebony fist when the blood from your face stains her diamond necklace!” This kind of doggerel was common in selling ’70s black action movies (that line is from the radio spot). Jeannie Bell, Richard Burton’s foxy then-girlfriend, stars in this Filipino epic for which the entirely fictitious Ebony Fist award was invented and bestowed on Ms. Bell by those rascals in the New World publicity department.
