* ThrowItIn: In the scene where O'Hara (Robert Wall) is beaten by Lee, Lee delivers a flying kick to O'Hara. Wall and Lee had decided that Lee should deliver a real flying kick to add authenticity to the scene, as Wall knew how to take the hit. They had not planned for wall to go flying back into the extras, knocking them all over and actually breaking one's arm.

** Kien Shih (Mr. Han) spoke no English, so his voice was dubbed by veteran Chinese-American actor Keye Luke (of "Series/KungFu", "Franchise/StarTrek", "Gremlins", and "CharlieChan" fame).

Added DiffLines:

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Shih Kien made a career out of playing various antagonists, most notably Han, but he and Creator/BruceLee got along pretty well off the set. Probably why he got the part.

* CastTheExpert:
** The hundreds of extras needed to play derelicts were real derelicts from the streets of Hong Kong.
** There was a problem finding actresses to play prostitutes, so real prostitutes were hired for the film.



* HostilityOnTheSet: Fights broke out onset between stuntmen and extras hired from rival families of Triads.



* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals:
** The praying mantises were flown in from Hawaii. When they arrived, they refused to fight.
** The crew had a very difficult time getting the cat to sit still on the guillotine.
** When Creator/BruceLee held the poisonous snake that guarded the secret entrance to Han's drug lab, the snake bit him. Fortunately, the snake's venom gland had been removed.
* NoStuntDouble: The only times Creator/BruceLee was doubled for the scenes where he was required to do backflips.



* RealLifeRelative: Linda Lee Caldwell, Creator/BruceLee's wife, has a short cameo as a partygoer at Han's banquet. She appears in a purple dress and is walking around among the banquet servers and entertainers.



* The line "We have been waiting for you" is familiar to fans of the original VideoGame/MortalKombat arcade game.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Future martial arts stars Creator/JackieChan and Creator/SammoHung have small parts. Chan appears three times in the film. He is one of Su Lin's attackers (she knees him in the groin), and twice later, towards the end of the film in the big cave fight scene. Lee grabs his hair for a while before breaking his neck; he is also one of the stuntmen that Lee hits when he wields two sticks (according to Chan himself). Hung is Lee's sparring partner during the fight before the opening credits.
