A Classic

These two scenes are classic female fights in feature movies and belong to "War Goddess" (a.k.a. "The Amazons", a.k.a. "Le Guerriere del Seno Nudo"), released in 1974 and directed by Terence Young, certainly a women combat fan due to the length and quality of such scenes on his films. He also directed two other movies with famous female brawl scenes: "From Russia with Love" (1963) - the gypsies catfight, and "The Opium is also a flower" (1966) - the ring wrestling in a night club.

"War Goddess" has appeared in a DVD double feature and the two fighting scenes have better image quality now. Even with Blogger conversion losses you may see the better results below and enjoy Alena Johnston - the buxon blonde, and Sabine Sun.

The second fighting was cut in many countries in the original release due to its full nakedness.

  2. I will never forget seeing this in a theater. The only sounds aside from the movie were from the audience breathing. This was truly groundbreaking. Thanks for finding an improved version. It makes a world of difference.

  3. GREAT renditions of these 2 scenes all-around ... Very Well Done !!!. (Blogger conversion losses didn't really "degrade" anything for the total effects.)

    (BTW ... let it be said you should just take the above italicized, boldface descriptors and apply them to your blog, overall ... Haven't said so in a lo-o-o-o-ng time but know that this blog is always among The Best of The Best, bar none ...)

    Now, about Young ...

    Thought he did a superb job in directing. The action was exemplary; he [wisely (?)--even though standards might have been more stringent back then] left out a lot of unnecessary, bullshit gore and violence while maintaining great motion and sequence. High Praise for Johnston and Sun. I chopped off the tail-end lezbo junk in Scene 2 but otherwise everything was priceless.

  4. Great fight - it's a shame From Russia with Love wasn't a bit more low budget. Watching this I get the distinct impression he held back with the two gypsy girls. Would have been fun to see them go a little further like the Amazons here!

  5. still one of the sexiest fights ever love gladiator girls xxx Jude
