"Sausage Leg" Kung Fu movie title?
February 3, 2008 10:26 PM   Subscribe

Dear Metafilter, Please help me identify and track down a copy of this movie. Somewhere in the early '80s while living in the outskirts of detroit, I, as a young impressionable lass, was obsessed with watching kung fu action flicks.

One that comes to vivid flashes of memory is a fantasy mythic style kung fu flick involving a young hero (with piquant sideburns) and old wizardy master (with white hair and white mustache and beard going down to *there*) and the old wizardy master's assistant that was a midget who at some point gets his legs burned or scalded in such a way as to make his legs look like breakfast sausage links.

I only recall this flick as "Sausage Leg" kung fu.

Can you help me find the real title of this film?

Hmm sounds like The Crippled Masters.

Sounds like the bad dream I'm shortly going to be having. Thanks!

Just had to find The Crippled Masters trailer after reading this. Doesn't look like the wizardly master has a long beard, but one of the characters does get his legs burnt with acid.

While the trailer is awesome, no that is *Not* it.

Any chance it is one of the Shaw Brothers film's Crippled Avengers? It went by a few different names. I can't find a screenshot of the legs that look like something off the bbq.
