The movie was Bruce Lee's directorial debut and Chuck Norris's first credited acting job leading to a fruitful career.
The role of Colt was originally given to karate champion, Joe Lewis. He and Bruce fell out and the role was given to Chuck.
The title was changed in America to Return of the Dragon to cash in on the success of Enter the Dragon, even though the film is not a sequel and was made a year earlier.
