The Thai brothel featured in the film was actually a genuine and functioning brothel. The extras who feature in these scenes (excluding Malalene's character) were actual prostitutes who were paid more by Golden Harvest than they would normally receive in a day by their clients so that they could appear in the film.

Uncle, is this it?

Well, Bruce Lee did it: he finally hit stardom with one of the coolest movies that I've ever seen. "Tang shan da xiong" (called "Fists of Fury" in the US) has him going to work in an ice factory after having taken a vow not to fight. But when he discovers slimy deals at the factory, he realizes that he has no other choice.
As one might expect, the whole movie is an excuse to show off Bruce Lee's moves, and they do a great job with it. There's not much in the way of an actual plot here: they get straight down to the martial arts, and I shouldn't even have to tell you what sorts of things he does.
All in all, this movie will remain a classic for all time. These sorts of flicks make life worth living. You're sure to love it.
