A martial arts movie star must fake his death to find the people who are trying to kill him.
George Lazenby was originally meant to be in this film and was due to meet Bruce Lee on July 20 1973, the day Lee died. For other reasons, Lazenby was not involved in the final project as directed by Robert Clouse.
Cut! Okay, that's a print. That was great, Billy! Okay everybody...
The camera's shadow falls on people during Billy Lo's funeral.
The Japanese theatrical cut of the film is virtually identical to the American cut, except that it uses Bruce Lee's real battle cries during the fight scenes as opposed to the fake ones by Chris Kent. Also, there is an extra bit of Cantonese dialogue from the second fighter in the finale (played by Ji Hon Jae) in which he warns Billy Lo that he must defeat him to continue. This cut has been released as a bonus feature on the 2012 Japanese Blu-ray from Paramount Japan and the 2013 American Blu-ray from Shout Factory.
