Dragon Fist/Fun Facts

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database

< Dragon Fist
  • Like many other Hong Kong kung fu movies, this movie was scored with various musical cues from U.S movies, mainly Jerry Goldsmith's score for The Sand Pebbles (1966).
  • Filmed before but released after Jackie Chan's two Seasonal Productions movies, Snake in the Eagle's Shadow (1978) and Drunken Master (1978). This movie was filmed as a Mandarin-language movie. However, the focus on the dubbing switched to Cantonese, due to the success of the Cantonese-language Seasonal movies. This is why most releases feature Cantonese as the only Chinese dialect option, despite the fact that the harder-to-find Mandarin track syncs up with the actors far better.
