    For anyone who's interested these are outtakes and deleted scenes to Game of Death. It's shocking how much footage was cut from the last fight scenes. You'll need a Real player to view these clips.

    AJ,
    You can't tease me like that! I can't get the links to work!
    I've been waiting since 1973 to see more footage (I knew it exsited)!

    Chris, maybe you can right click on the link and do a 'save as' and save the files to your hard drive. My PC allows me to open them up without saving them but I don't know if that works for everybody. I'm reposting the outtakes link since I can't get it to leave off that [/url] on my first post. Hopefully it works

    These are great clips! Most, I had not seen before. HK DTS version of Fist of Fury has some of these scenes under the easter egg, but it cannot compare to your clips. Your's is much longer in length and comes with the original sountrack. Mine is very short and played to an annoying music.
    Where did these come from. Are they part of the UK's HKL version of Game of Death? I'm curious.
    All Bruce Lee fans must see these clips.

    I do not think George Lazenby ever got to film any of his scenes for Game of Death. The night Bruce Lee died, he and Raymond Chow were supposed to meet with Lazenby and discuss the script and his scenes. Unfortunately Chow got a phone call from Betty Ting Pei(an actress who was rumored to have also been cast in the film) telling him to go over her place, because she could not wake Bruce up from his nap. George Lazenby attended the funeral in Hong Kong.
    The people who knew Bruce and his concept for Game Of Death, called it his best film.

    Good Lord Bruce is fast. The other guys look like they're in slow motion. Thanks for the scenes. They did cut a lot. However, I must say that I prefer the final cut, with just Bruce.

    I prefer the original footage. More Bruce the better. The only reason I watched Game of Death was to see the real Bruce Lee near the end. I really didn't care for the stand-ins or the motorcycle action scenes. HKL Game of Death is now on my must buy list.

    So in U.S. verision there's about 15 min.
    But how much footage is there even without Bruce, like Kareem solo scenes and so on?

    John Little, the man who made the first documentary for the 25th Anniversary Edition of Enter the Dragon, has pieced together another doc using most of the 45 minutes deleted from GOD. It's called Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey. It's coming to the UK next month and the US ?
    Look for it on VHS and DVD. I'll post here when I see it announced in Region 1.

    I'm a big Bruce fan but watching those clips... when (spoiler) Bruce started punching holes in the walls and Kareem acted all like light was his weakness, that part was so lame!! To top that off, the shot with Kareem's uhhh, snake eyes was so cheesy. Not to mention the dubbing. I kind of wish they kept the 70's Game of Death music and not that 80's rock music in the background.

    I have "Bruce Lee, A Warriors Journey" from Region 4 (New Zealand) and watched it last night.
    All I can say is WOW!
    It is a feature length documentary about Bruce and his 'Style of No Style'. It features great interviews with his wife, Kareem, and others. And then it finishes with all the newly discovered footage, edited together from Bruces own storyboards and script.
    It is AMAZING!
    Track it down.

    Thanks for the mini-review. I can't wait until it's released in Region 1!
