Special Event: Ohana Reunion in Grand Junction CO - March 18, 2017
Kill the Golden Goose
Mr. Parker's most prominent move role was that of Mauna Loa, in Kill the Golden Goose. Debuting in August of 1979, Mr. Parker plays an assassin hired to kill three witnesses, who are scheduled to testify before a Senate Subcommittee. Trying to stop him is another great martial artist, Bong Soo Han.
This is definitely my favorite "B" movie of all time. Yes, it's a low budget movie with bad acting, but on the other hand, it's Ed Parker playing a role he was born to play. He smashes, crashes and kills everything in his path and he does it all with the evil-eye look of a man who really enjoys his work.
You can watch Kill the Golden Goose for free on DailyMotion.
If you would like a larger screen and better resolution, can rent/buy it on Amazon.
Mona Loa sets sights on killing his next victim, but first he must take out Rainer Schulte, who in real-life is a close friend and student of Mr. Parker's. At the time, Rainer was also the head of the International Kenpo Karate Association, for Mr. Parker, in all of Europe.
Mona Loa dispences with Rainer in all of about two seconds . . . so much for all the good it did Rainer to be a friend, student and head of the International Kenpo Karate Association in all of Europe :-)

In this scene, Mr. Olympia (Ken Waller) grabs Mona Loa and calls him a "Coconut Head".
A moment later Mona Loa asks Mr. Olympia a question and says, "Your dead, if you're lying".
This is what can happen if Mona Loa knocks on your door . . . and you open the door.
Various incarnations of Kill the Golden Goose. It was re-released as Kill the Golden Ninja during the Ninja craze and Time of Death was a German release, with a more scary looking cover.
There were several of these Mexican Lobby Cards, displaying different versions of the inset photo.
