Game of Death II/Fun Facts
From The Grindhouse Cinema Database
- Bruce Lee had filmed over 30 minutes of fight scenes for Game of Death (1978) when work was suspended to allow Lee to work on Enter the Dragon (1973). However, Lee died before he could return. Six years later, director Robert Clouse fleshed out a feature around the original footage with a new cast, including two stand-ins for Lee. After the success of Game of Death in Japan, there was high demand for a new Bruce Lee movie there. As a result, much of the movie is filmed in and takes place in Japan.
- Both the English dubbed and original Chinese versions (not the version on the Hong Kong Universe DVD) feature music scores from other films. The English dubbed versions feature a large number of Denny Zeitlin's music cues from the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, while the original Chinese versions features a large number of Les Baxter's music cues from The Dunwich Horror.
