"But the blind acceptance, the enthusiasm is over already." The downfall ot K u n g Fu, he said, is due to overcxposure. "It happened in I t a l y , in Lebanon and the United States." said Shan. "Too many of the films were shown and the market hccame saturated. Now, they w a n t Bruce I^e, but the other Kung Fu pictures lave no where to go." Lcc. who died last year at 33, was the K u n g Fu. superstar. He left hehind a completed picture. "The Way of the Dragon," to he released as "Return of the Dragon" in the United States. Golden Harvest is trying to put an ending on Lee's unfinished film. "Game of Death," in production when he died. Sus- perslilion has hampered Hi completion. With 'the^ eerie coincidence in the film's title, many Chinese actors want nothing more to do with It, NOT NEW The occult and exorcism aren't news in Hong Kong. On i recent afternoon spiritualists a n d priests chanted incantations in a parking lot believed to be hexed by evil spirits. Local newspapers also re' race had Code Of Ethics Statements Due LITTLE ROCK (AP) -About 30 candidates for slate or district office will violate the law unless they submit Code of Ethics s t a t e m e n t s to the secretary of stale by m i d n i g h t tonight. T h e General Assembly enacted the Code of Ethics in 1371 to "establish a heller balance whereby the public can evaluate the p e r f o r m a n c e and accomplishments of public offi- c i a l s and employes." Violation of the law is a misdemeanor and carries a fine of not less than S'lO or more t h a n $50(1. The law allows a j a i l sen teiice of no less than 10 days nor more than 9fl days. Persons who file false statements u n d e r the law can be re Cjiirer] to forfeit public office. Incumbents \vere supposed to have filed a statement ii - J a n u a r y /or the office the hold. Business Notes Elected officials currently lolding one office but running or another do not have to file. f they have filed already for he office they hold. The secretary of state's office ;aid about 275 persons had filed or the state or district public jffices as of the April 2 dead- ine for f i l i n g as a candidate in his year's elections. About flfl state renrcseitta- .ivcs and a taut 17 state sena- .ors arc seeking reflection. Municipal candidates a l s o must file ethics statements, hut :his is done on the county level. The sccreatry of state's office Raymond F. Grimes has been named manager of the Fayette~~ Financial Services office al 1212 N. College Avcutle. Grimes joined C1T in May of 1069 as a customer service representative, lie was promoted to assistant manager of the Fort Smith office in September of 1971. He is m a r r i e d to the former Ann Wilkins and attended the West Arkansas ported the exorcism of a r track where "evil spirits" 1 tripped two horses severely injured in falls. "A lot of film people art su perstitious,'' said Shan. "But fortunately Raymond Chow is not." Chow, Vi, who broke away from the powerful Shaw Bros studio four years ago to found Golden Harvest, is the crown prince of the Hong Kong movie empire. The debonaire Chow, devotee of golf and fast cars, : the antithesis of his onetime boss, conservative movie czar Run Run Shaw. Some say Chow will eventually eclipse Shaw with his more modern approacl to moviemaking. "Golden Harvest is now hal ex-Shaw people," said Shan who spoke for the studio in the absence of Chow, away on a movie project. Last year Golden Harves produced 14 movies, a far sec ond to Shaw's 40. But profits o the two companies were closer Shan said, and Chow is tryin hard to narrow the gap further "We figure we w i 1 1 be in the market this 5'ear and the year after with a better and better product," he said. KEY CHANGE A key difference in the two companies. Shan concedes, is in facilities Shaw's 43-acre mountaintop studio provides suf- icient backgrounds for almost his films. Chow, who has only a few sound stages and of- ices, films everything on loca- :ion, usually in Korea or Tai- ray into the area of binrre documentaries patterned , after "Mondo Cane." In both areas, censorship i« likely to require different v»r stons of the films for domestic and export distribution. "Our censors in Hong KOHJ discourage frontal ' nudity aix explicit sex scenes," said Shati "Sometime we make two v«r ions of a film -- one for con ervative Asia and another fo broad minded Occi ie more ent."
