Bruce Lee's original Game of Death

Bruce Lee's untimely death is one of Hollywood's great tragedies, and certainly the worst in the history of Kung Fu cinema. Before the filming of what was to be his swan song, the ridiculously awesome Enter the Dragon, Lee was working on a Kung Fu epic that according to Lee was set to be the Citizen Kane of martial arts films. Sadly, funding fell through a little more than half way into its filming, and Lee subsequently made Enter the Dragon in order to fund Game of Death, but was tragically killed before he could get back to it. The footage that remained was eventually spliced into a sub-par version of Lee's vision for Game of Death, which featured excellent fight scenes, but a near incoherent plot. It was the best they could do with what they had, but if Lee had lived to finish the picture it would have been a classic.
