Jox i write it before, but no one answered, I saw one pic in Gallery Section for SILT - tItled ON LOCATION - exactly is a screenshot with Dolph smiling with A Red Dragon Face on background. Obviously it is behind the scenes footage - final fight at he parade. Where can we find this video ?

I also check very often ebay for SILT merchandise, google news under it's title, as u do. I think I have pretty solid gallery at my parents house. I remember back in early "90 bubble gums with stickers were very popular, I have a lot of albums with action stars including Dolph. Now they are really rare...

Jox what a pity. I was thinking it comes from one episodes from Hollywood Stuntmakers. On IMDB is indicated that first season of HS from 1991 has just 1 episode called "Fantastic Fights", but i think this is not true. I found on internet 2 more episodes on youtube from 1991, I guess,that are are not listed on IMDB.

First episode is almost entIrEly about JCVD during Double Impact (1991) production, but it feature also Dolph in small sequence during the production of SILT ( hairstyle and he is dressed like Kenner in the movie).

In the second episode there is an interview with Terry J Leonard - second unit director on SILT speaking about career of stuntmen. Interview with Leonard is taken also behind the scenes of SILT- the background is the street of the final fight at the parade and Bansai Club location. U can watch it here -

Terry J leonard interview in on minut 43.

Good find!

Indeed, it could well be from one of the episodes, I haven't seen them all, I bought two tapes from the UK, had not seen these were on Youtube. It's shame that even the Brandon Lee interview and its BTS footage is cut so short and he's only speaking about his father in the clip. And of course Dolph is asked to speak about ROCKY IV...

The vintage interviews I got regarding SILT come from the press kit and magazines such as BLACK BELT, PREVUE, ALL STAR ACTION HEROES (a Starlog publication) and French magazines (mostly CINE-NEWS although they didn't cover it as much as Dolph's previous movies)...

Of course!

I can't tell if it's a photo of the Japanese bath location (which I assume might be one in activity) or a computer recreation?

This pic is included in the portfolio of one of the set decorators who worked on Silt, back in 1991.

Posting this bath pic it remind me a scene from Deadpool 2. where the title character is fighting in the similar location with some guys. It come to my mind how many movies nowaday are copying so many action sequences from old movies.
It is not only B movies. even big franchises are copying scenes from different B movies. One of the example can be Fast&Furious franchise - the last 2 movies copied their main action sequences from Taxi Franchise, starring Sami Naceri, produced by Luc Besson. In Furious 7 (2015) - the drop cars from the plane is used earlier in Taxi 2 (2000), where Danielle Morales is parachuted with the car in Paris trying to save the life of Japanese minister kidnaped by yakuza. In F&F 8 (2017) skying on the snow scene is a rip off from Taxi 3 (2003), where Daniele is following the "Santa Claus" thieves. Universal have bigger budgets, better CGI, effects but concept is the same. And no one is trying to sue Universal and writer Chris Morgan for plagiarism ?

Coming back to the bath pic, in that portfolio is included also another pic:

I never really picked on his body shape for SILT but that's a good thing, because I saw him as being at his "biggest" in ROCKY IV, MASTERS and RED SCORPION. He probably worked with a training to look both pumped and "more normal" in SILT on purpose.

Yes ! But this is for the first time when he has low percentage of fat on his body !! He is very dry in SILT ! This square lines on his face, jaw, was for the first time in SILT I guess. In Rocky, Masters, Scorpion, Punisher, Dark Angel he wasn't like that! Hair style was a good match in SILT too, velvet jeans, leather jacket, t-shirts with open biceps- 100% wardrobe match. It has style...
Only Seagal has that style with characteristic jackets in Hard to Kill, Marked for Death, Out for Justice and Van Damme in Double Impact. Oh, one more Arnold in Terminator 2 ...
