After Billy Lo is killed while seeking the murderers of his friend, his brother Bobby goes all out to bring the perpetrators to justice.
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 Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) and one or two from Jerry Goldsmith's score for Alien (1979), while the original Chinese versions features a large number of Les Baxter's music cues from The Dunwich Horror (1970).
Tower Of Death guard:
Hey! Who are you?
Bobby Lo: Me? Jack the Ripper.
The lion fighting Bobby Lo is a laughable fake.
A third cut of the film exists, but it is extremely rare. It is the official South Korean print of the film which uses more footage of Korean actors Kim Tai Jong (Lee Chen Chiang/Lee Chen Kuo) and Hwang Jang Lee (Chin Ku), including an extended sword form demonstration with Hwang's character. This cut also downplays the Bruce Lee angle as most of the stock footage featuring Lee has been cut out. Outside of theatrical release, the only confirmed home release of this cut is an old full screen South Korean VHS release. Despite the rarity of the full film, the opening 7+ minutes are available for viewing on YouTube under the title "Tower of Death Korean Version". Whether or not the original widescreen film sources still exist is unknown.
