According to old Taiwanese newspapers, there was a Taiwanese-speaking movie in 1959 called "Luo Xiao Hu and Yu Jiao Long," an earlier adaptation of Du Lu Wang's novel. The old newspapers noted that this version was also a martial arts film. The leading actress, Hsiao Yan-Chiou, was originally a traditional Taiwanese opera actress. After the movie was released, Hsiao married, leaving "Luo Xiao Hu and Yu Jiao Long" as her last movie. The film is thought to be no longer in existence now, and it seems to hold no connection with Ang Lee's "Wo Hu Cang Long," except for the adaptation source.

The Taiwanese VCD for this movie was dubbed. Mandarin Chinese was not the first language for Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh, and it showed in the original movie. This version dubbed them over with native speakers. It can also be distinguished by the addition of background noise such as grunts during the fights.
