QR – Cure – Quizzing Realms – 263

X and Y are two films starring the same person. X was released in 1971. However, X’s intended name, which was very near to a Gene Hackman film that was released shortly before, was intended for it because of the theme of drugs in X. However, the initial names of X and Y got somehow interchanged. It was only in 2005 that the names were changed back again. As a result, Y came to be known what X was originally released as, but to reduce confusion, an alphabet was dropped from X’s original name, and the result became Y’s new name. X, on the other hand, came to be known by a different name. Give me the present names of both these films.

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!


Looks like this one was a real toughie! No answers yet! Lets clear the air, then.

X was supposed to have been called The Chinese Connection, after Hackman’s The French Connection. but came to be known as Fists of Fury. It’s now known as The Big Boss.

Y was supposed to have been Fist of Fury (not Fists…), but was erroneously called The Chinese Connection. It’s now reverted back to Fist of Fury.
