Or you can check at your local public library, a fair number of which
have some or all of the prime Chan titles--see WorldCat. If yours isn't
one of them there's always ILL.

It appears for now that Fox will not be swayed despite the fact the the

overwhelming number of responses to them were in favor of showing the
films

One VERY interesting note in yesterday's New York Daily News ( and I
suspect

elsewhere) claimed that the films were pulled because Rupert Murdoch's
wife

who is Chinese objected. Fox denies this and claims that it was due

to objection by "community groups".

This remains a very sad case of "commercial" censorship of the first
order

and very, very ironic given the rants that ALL Fox media outlets engage
in

when they claim that some "liberal" group is engaging in "PC" politics

If you want to see the Chan films you will have to buy the bootlegs on

eBay (which are plentiful and ignored by Fox)
