Trivia:

Mel Novak, who portrayed Stick the Assassin in Game of Death, shot Bruce Lee's character with a prop gun during a take. Tragically and ironically, this scene would prove to be a premonition of the death of Lee's son, Brandon Lee, who was killed on the set of The Crow, when a prop pistol accidentally shot him in the abdomen two decades later.
