    Details on Indicator's Hammer Vol. 5 set.

    https://www.powerhousefilms.co.uk/pr...eath-deceit-le

    Includes an exclusive double-sided poster only available with direct orders from this website (poster features the original UK Quad designs for THE PIRATES OF BLOOD RIVER and THE BRIGAND OF KANDAHAR, see pictures).

    VISA TO CANTON (Michael Carreras, 1961)
    THE PIRATES OF BLOOD RIVER (John Gilling, 1962)
    THE SCARLET BLADE (John Gilling, 1963)
    THE BRIGAND OF KANDAHAR (John Gilling, 1965)

    Release date: 30 March 2020
    Limited Edition Blu-ray (UK and World premieres on Blu-ray)

    Hammer Volume Five: Death & Deceit collects four films from the early sixties which found the studio looking beyond the horror genre for its next box-office success. Visa to Canton (1961, released in the US as Passport to China) is a torn-from-the-headlines spy thriller; The Pirates of Blood River (1962), starring Kerwin Mathews (The 7th Voyage of Sinbad) and Christopher Lee (The Face of Fu Manchu), is a swashbuckling adventure; The Scarlet Blade (1963, released in the US as The Crimson Blade) is an English Civil War-set actioner which follows the fortunes of Cromwell’s Roundheads; and The Brigand of Kandahar (1965) takes Hammer to the North-West Frontier for an action-adventure starring Ronald Lewis (Taste of Fear) and Oliver Reed (The System). All four films are presented for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, while Visa to Canton, The Scarlet Blade and The Brigand of Kandahar make their world Blu-ray premieres. This limited edition box set is strictly limited to 6,000 numbered units.

    Not 100% sure what the bottom line is here
    Commentary is mis labeled , or there are 2 tracks but only 1 listed?
    Track #1 Norm Track #2 Ted?

    From FB
    Ted Newsom
    Who the hell is Norman Hill?
    ( Norm moderated a track that appeared on the old AB DVD )
    The guy who sat with Monte Hellman in the recording booth? 'cause, by God,
    Bill Lustig and me were the guys who recorded Stuart Whitman.

    Obviously it's got loads more extras but the transfers on the Indicator and Twilight Time Blu-ray releases of Pirates Of Blood River look pretty damn close.
