Charlie Chan Curse Of Dragon Queen (11/8) specs or info?

This is the awesomely cheesy 80's movie with Battlestar Galacticas' Richard Hatch right? Anyone have any info, such as anamorphic, etc. It's from Trinity Home Entertainment which I don't think I've seen before, so I don't know if they do anamorphic or not? They also have Octagon (Chuck Norris) on the same day with no specs.

I just found Trinity's website, & it is that movie. I remember Angie Dickinson & Peter Ustinov, but I forgot about Michelle Pfeiffer. Unfortunately, they don't have any specs- just this info-

must be a price drop because that came out 09.07.04 according to amazon, I thought it had been out longer than that I see it in store every day. Can't comment on the disc myself because i don't own it.

I have this DVD from the prior release. Excellent picture quality although it is a 4x3 picture. It's probably open matte since there are no obvious P&S effects. There is a trailer along with a very well done documentary on the studio that produced this as well as those equally cheesy Chuck Norris flicks from the 70s. For the price I paid ($7.50 at Walmart), this was a good purchase.

I assume you know this really isn't a Charlie Chan picture? It's a parody and should be viewed with that in mind. What makes it worthwhile and fun to watch is the great cast. In addition to those mentioned above, Brian Keith plays a crusty policeman.

Yeah, I used to watch this on HBO way back when. I think I even had some kind of photo/ comic book for it. I wish I still had all of those. I had a Grease book with photos & comic bubbles for dialogue. I also had a cool Buckaroo Banzai comic.
