Bruce Lee made several 'firsts' in the Hong Kong movie industry whilst making this. It was the first Chinese film be made in the West, and he was the first Hong Kong director to view daily 'rushes' in color. He insisted on doing this so he could ensure exact color - matching in editing, due to combining the location shots in Rome with the studio footage at Golden Harvest. He also refused to use the standard 'canned' music and commissioned a new score. See more »
While Tang is fighting thugs in the alley with his nunchaku, he swings them several times hitting the thugs and the nunchaku swing all the way round fluidly. In reality, when nunchaku hit a solid object, they will bounce off the object struck and go in the opposite direction, forcing the operator of the nunchaku to change his or her swinging and wrist motion.

Please, we are friends! Tang Lung is our enemy. Please wait for our boss to come back to decide which one of you will take care of that chinaman. Okay?
[the Japanese fighter spits, which enrages Bob Fred. They start fighting again]
Ahhhh! Ohh, oh, no, don't, stop it! Oh, ohh, stop it! Stop it!
[the fighting stops. Bob Fred spots Colt with the Mob boss and walks over]

A true classic from the greatest martial artist of all time.
This is the best Bruce Lee movie, period. The single reason is that this movie shows him off a lot more than the other ones.
In this film, the one and only Bruce Lee made his directing debut. Not only the movie showed the world why he is the greatest martial artist to ever live, it showed that he is way ahead of his time. This film showcased his astounding skills, agility, and charm much more so than the brilliant classic "Enter the Dragon", and this film will show how truly fast and nimble Bruce Lee is with his fists and feet (the people had to accelerate the frame rates of all his films in order to catch his movements properly). The fight scenes are unbelievable, and it is already widely regarded that the final Colloseum battle between Tang Long (Bruce Lee) and Colt (Chuck Norris) is the best fighting sequence ever filmed for a movie.
Do yourself a favor by watching the original Way of the Dragon with all it's original fighting noises intact. Those who are content on only watching the English-dubbed version are missing out on a lot!!!! Any true fans of Bruce Lee can attest the massive difference it makes in experiencing the real voices of Bruce Lee when he is fighting on-screen.
