Thank you to Hector Martinez for sharing these amazing never before seen videos from his personal collection of The Last Dragon memorabilia. Hector’s Berry Gordy’s The Last Dragon collection is easily the largest in the world and these video’s are some of the rarest and coolest pieces of 80’s nostalgia he has.
The videos were given to him by his friend, Martial Arts Legend & Actor Ron Van Clief aka The Black Dragon, who worked on The Last Dragon as fight coordinator and stunt man. Van Clief was one of Eddie Arkadian’s hired thugs fighting Leroy in the Final 7th Heaven fight scene. Footage was shot during the 1984 filming of The Last Dragon outside of “Daddy Green’s Pizza” on 182 Avenue C between 11th Street and 12th Street in New York City. “Daddy Green’s Pizza” was actually Village East Pizzeria at the time then later Villagio’s Pizza.
