Before the infamous TURKISH STAR WARS — there was 1975’s THE SWORD AND THE CLAW! AGFA’s latest preservation is a wild ride through that same hallucinogenic netherworld, and features genre legend Cünyet Arkin in his most iconic role.

This is CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE — with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals and lunatic dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle.
