Correct. Nighttime is the 2nd visit, and daytime is the 3rd.

- Director Lo Wei: "The hero of The Big Boss is an energetic young man. When such a man prepares to kill the villain at any cost, he naturally will want to give vent to his desire. So, he goes to the whorehouse and makes love to a prostitute."

What is the source of this quote, specifically? Is it from an interview on a TV show or magazine? Unfortunately the article neglects to clarify the origin of Lo Wei's quote, so I just wanna know where it comes from. If anyone can tell me, that would be great.
A little birdie told me that a Chinese graphic novel adaptation of TBB is on it's way. It's being done by Shing On Tsui, who also illustrated both Way of the Dragon and Fist of Fury.

For further reference, these are the two graphic novels in question.

No idea. Doing ETD would be rather complicated since Warner Bros are the copyright holders and it's doubtful they have much ties to the Hong Kong market, if at all.

The drawings are great indeed. However, I don't think the semi-cartoonish style flows in well with the otherwise gritty nature of TBB. I'm guessing the artist will slightly modify his style for the upcoming graphic novel. We'll see.

No more big boss at the moment. He's taking a break.

From the first Nucleus magazine (published August 1997), a still from the very beginning of the final brothel sequence, where Cheng Chao-An slows down to catch his breath, and coincidentally (or deliberately?) stops outside the whorehouse......you already know how the rest goes ;)

Quite a rare photo that hasn't really been shown anywhere else outside of Jason Hart's Missing Big Boss article. He recently uncovered it again and this time provided the source of the pic, so props for him!

From Ricky Baker's Facebook

I have been working on a big book project in-between the BLF poster mags and scrapbooks, and this will cover the BB in detail. The book timeline is 1969 - 72

Im hoping this will be a 2018 release

Malalene's original name is Malalin Bonnak (in Thai มาลาริน บุนนาค) not Marilyn Bautisa. I've personally asked my Thai tourist and some Thai locals when I visited Thailand in the 80s. They told me she is their local Thai actress, not very famous but most older Thais there know her. She was born in Thailand and her family also got to do with the showbusiness. That's all I could remember.
Bonnak is a Thai surname. Malalin Bonnak's name is officially listed in HKMDB and in Thai cinema website (below) though she also has other alias such as Miss Malarin, Malalene, Marilyn Bautista, etc.
Apparently, Marilyn Bautisa is one of her stage names not her original name.

Below is a Thai website that talks a bit more about Miss Bonnak's Thai movies.

"Malalin Bonnak played in Thai movies during years 1970-1975 She is often played the "ดาวโป้" (actress who always played the girlfriend of the Mafia boss, the jealous woman, the temptress, the prostitute or the woman dressed in sexy clothes) or สาวดาวยั่วเซ็กซี่"
