The Big Boss Part II, released in 1976, was a sequel to the 1971 Bruce Lee film The Big Boss. The film starred martial arts stars Lo Lieh, Bruce Le and Chan Wai Man. The film is often confused for another film known as Big Boss II, also released in 1976, however that film stars Bruceploitation star Dragon Lee, and is unrelated to this film.
The film was never released on home video or DVD, and it has not turned up in any bootleg format online. However at least one print of the film, dubbed into English, is known to exist and is owned by a Zambian cinema. The previous South African owner of said print has posted ten minutes of the film on YouTube, but has refused to release the entire film to the public.
Members of the fan forum Kung Fu Cinema attempted to get this South African print released in 2010, however the master reel was subsequently sold to the aforementioned Zambian cinema, and the film remains effectively lost. An English dubbed trailer for the film exists, and multiple posters and magazine scans exist, but no other print of the film has been found.
Edit: Another print, unfortunately 50 seconds long contains a fight scene in a Thailand ice factory, with an extremely rare Mandarin Chinese print. No other video is found, but the footage from the Mandarin print is on Vimeo.
