(a) The 1977 film is Silver Hermit from Shaolin Temple 碧血冼銀槍 (produced
in Taiwan; 導演 田鵬, 編劇 秋風, 監製 李清源, 演員 田鵬 田鶴 陳星)
(b) Not to be confused with Shaolin Temple (1982 film)
I think the reporter made a mistake. The 2011 remake,
(an updated version of Jet Li's film debut, The Shaolin Temple)
, and the 1982 film share two actors (Andy Lau and Jackie Chan)--the 1982
film starred Jet Li, who is not in the remake.
