"Game of Death"

Happy Birthday, Bruce Lee! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing "Game of Death," released five years after Lee's death in 1973 and containing only 11 minutes of footage from the original production.

Released five years after Bruce Lee's death, this elaborate salvage job incorporates only 11 minutes of Lee footage from his original production, which he had put on hold to star in Enter the Dragon. The rest of the time his character is played by heavily disguised doubles, while the majority of the cast play auxiliary roles in what amounts to an entirely new story. There are varying international versions of this film as well as several pseudo-sequels and ripoffs.

    A very well done reconstruction of the surviving Lee footage was done several years ago. It gives the idea of this being one of the great unfortunate lost masterpieces of action cinema.
