Actor Jesse Martin had all of his belongings stolen from director Peter McGennis' truck while having breakfast on the morning of his departure. Martin still took time to give autographs to the police at the crime scene.
The "bare" shot on the busy bridge connecting the United States and Canada went off without a glitch until traffic was released a bit too soon in one direction. Folks inside approximately 15 cars got something more than a sneak peek while entering the United States.
Buffalo Bushido is dedicated to McGennis' best friend's brother, Brendan, who died at a young age as a result of a real life car accident. The film supports a scholarship fund in Brendan's name offered through Fordham University.
