Zatoichi and the One-Armed Swordsman(新座頭市・破れ！唐人剣,Shin Zatōichi: Yabure! Tōjin-ken), also known as Zatoichi Meets the One-Armed Swordsman, is a 1971 Hong Kong-Japanese wuxia/chambara crossover film directed by Chinese film director Hsu Tseng Hung and Japanese film director Kimiyoshi Yasuda. The film stars Jimmy Wang Yu as the "One-Armed Swordsman" Wang Gang and Shintaro Katsu as the blind masseur Zatoichi. This film is a crossover of the One-Armed Swordsman and Zatoichi film series.
It is rumored that there were originally two different endings where one ending is Zatoichi winning the fight and alternate ending is Wang Gang, the One-Armed Swordsman winning the fight, however this has yet to be verified.
