Monumental non-profit film library, the American Genre Film Archive, is back with another rousing retro title for fans of trash cinema to celebrate and collect. Late actress Renee Harmon’s performance in James Bryan’s 1981 film, Lady Street Fighter, is now up for grabs from the Alamo Drafthouse’s niche shingle and with an official Blu-Ray release set for August 14, and specs are now public domain. Have a read!
She makes the bad guys bleed! Written and produced by exploitation demigod Renee Harmon (FROZEN SCREAM) and directed by the legendary James Bryan (DON’T GO IN THE WOODS), this is the story of Linda (Harmon), a tough-as-nails karate cop on the trail of the ruthless scumbags who murdered her twin sister!
From the outrageous fight scenes to Harmon’s incredible outfits, LADY STREET FIGHTER is a joyous blast of no-holds-barred chaos from one of the most important female filmmakers in genre history. Don’t miss the special appearance by Trace Carradine, the most elusive Carradine brother of all!
“Renee Harmon will now be finally recognized as the low budget genius-in-the-rough that she always was,” said LADY STREET FIGHTER director James Bryan. “Her great day has arrived!”
