[quote]The movie she’s watching at the end is “Shogun Assasins”. Ã‚Â Isn’t that the old TV show starring Hattori Hanzo? Ã‚Â B.B. asks if she can watch it, and Bill says that it is “too long”. Ã‚Â The series had 4 seasons worth of episodes. Ã‚Â Watch the “Making of Kill Bill” on the Volume 1 DVD, and watch the part when he talks about the TV show Shogun Assasins – there are actually some clips on there of the old show, with Sonny Chiba.
No, the Sonny Chiba series from the Making Of is called “Kage no Gundan” aka “Shadow Warriors”. “Shogun Assassins” is another name for “Lone Wolf and Cub”. This is a movie-series from Japan just like “Lady Snowblood”. Bloody fights, a mainly influence for “Kill Bill”, especially the House of the Blue Leaves showdown sequence. And in “Shogun Assassins” there’s no Sonny Chiba. He was starring two very big Martial Arts movie-series: “Street Fighter” and “Shadow Warriors”. But not “Lone Wolf and Cub” aka “Shogun Assassins”.
@Awardwinningactor: This Bronson poster in Budd’s trailer is from “Mr. Majestyk”. One of my favorite movies with Charles Bronson.
