The Game of Death (死亡的遊戲) is an incomplete Hong Kong martial arts film, of 39 minutes filmed in 1972, directed, written, produced (☯) by and starring Bruce Lee. In 1978 the Golden Harvest has released Game of Death and other Game of Death movies. The 1978 version uses portions of the original footage married to an entirely new plot. The revised version of the film uses only 11 minutes and 7 seconds of the footage from the original The Game of Death, but after 2000 the original version was distributed in films and documentaries from various parts of the world (from the book Game Over! by Joe Kenney on Cityonfire).
