      Hello David



      The problem with �The Chairman� as a title
      is its too generic. It looks like a board of directors, even back in the 70s
      (on TV not cinema by the way when I think I saw the opening). I think I would
      have gone for a title more appropriate to Hathaway�s predicament for the film.
      After all, it was also released under the title �The Most Dangerous Man In The
      World� which is also vague. Who does it refer to: Hathaway or Mao?? Is there
      any major differences between the book and film before I go after the former??



      I saw a couple of the extras on the DVD yesterday
      including a more explicit scene with Ziena Merton
      which I presume was in the rest of the world cut?? Back in those days there
      were very few oriental or oriental looking actresses, let alone actors, over
      here and these three were the most regularly used. Eric Young appeared all over
      the place, including �The Champions� pilot and the SF film �Invasion� where I
      remembered him most from. Burnt Kwouk was already legendary.
