Trivia / Fist of Fury

  • Completely Different Title: The Chinese Connection and The Iron Hand (America).
  • Killed by Request: The film originally ended with Chen escaping justice, as his real-life counterpart had done. Bruce Lee insisted that he face the consequences of his actions, hence the Bolivian Army Ending.
  • Looping Lines: Sync sound was not widely used in Hong Kong cinema for a long time so the voices (even on the original Cantonese track) for the film were dubbed.
  • Wag the Director: To make the point that crime and violence don't pay, Bruce Lee insisted that his character must die at the end, but die with honor. In real life, Chen successfully escaped from Shanghai.
