Growing up, I used to watch a lot of movies on WGN each Saturday. For a while, this included martial arts movies of the 1970s. By today’s standards they probably will be silly to most people, but I loved them. In fact, as a child of the 80s I was fascinated by them.

One of those movies that still stands out the most to me is Master of the Flying Guillotine. It has quite a few awesome moments including the ending fight scene below where the master battles the One Arm Boxer.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a clip of the master walking as I remember loving the deep rhythmic music that sounded with each step (very creepy).

Man, I wish they’d replay these movies again.

As a fun fact, the flying guillotine is actually based on a real weapon used at one time. It wasn’t thrown but rather dropped from a tree on people passing by. And yes, it did decapitate them.
