Force Five seemed like a good idea in comparison to this:

Force Five was a revised name used back in '75, albeit with a different storyline, but same five people chosen for their respective fields. What Lee did was really no secret back then. Lee was inspired by an earlier film of an island owned by an eccentric millionaire, where anything could happen. Those whom the millionaire of this island invited eventually became his prey, reluctantly, thus the "Game" of Death. Hopefully the word Game is setting in, because it had nothing to do with the willingness of people taking part in a friendly match. Lee threw in a Pagoda because it allowed for the element of surprise, not knowing what to expect next when they made their way up the stairs. This is why no guns were allowed on the island. What people tend to argue about, rather get confused about, was the third installment...

Are you talking about The Most Dangerous Game?

A Game of Death is a 1945 film directed by Robert Wise. It is a remake of Richard Connell's short story, "The Most Dangerous Game", about a madman who hunts human prey on his personal island habitat.

Yes. Robert Wise was an excellent producer and director, and his films were extremely popular. Lee was inspired by Robert Wise's '45 film Game of Death through Silliphant, who himself was an incredible script/screen writer, and admired Wise. A lot of time has subsided Nick, and you've gotten older, so you can finally visualize Lee for who he really was. Many make the mistake of placing Lee in the category of he did it all on his own and needed nobody, and that was never the case. Many were involved. The reason why the script was able to be written and completed is because Silliphant was involved. Lee knew what he wanted in terms of getting his philosophy and fight scenes on the big screen, but Silliphant was the master behind it all in many ways. When Lee died, the project died.

So you say Silliphant was involed and has wrote the script for GOD and not Bruce himself?
Never heard such nonsens like this, Lee wrote the GOD script all by himself off course with the help of others persons friends etc.

But Silliphant was never involed in GOD!

Well first of all you seriously need a reality check. I take it you are one of Lee's fans who think the man was God's gift to script writing? Way of the Dragon must have won an Asian Oscar award in your eyes I take it? Clearly the nonsense sadly lies in posthumous fans such as yourself who miraculously think they knew his every move without even being alive yet. If you can prove, factually, that Lee wrote an entire script called Game of Death, and not just some table notes that anyone can lay claim to in reference to his ideas, then you can argue such a claim. If not, then I would highly recommend just keeping your mouth closed because you sound very foolish. Lee was strung out and lost, his friends seen and witnessed his withdrawals first hand, they seen the strange way he was acting because of it, yet fans like you seriously think he was doing things on his own. Collaboration came from Golden Harvest you think? Oh wait, maybe the more green Concord crew? Too funny.

Wait a minute, didn’t you say that the script was completed with Siliphant? Are you talking about silent flute or game of death??

The basis for Game of Death is not as extravagant as you might think. The problem is what was incorporated into the actual film itself. Nick, watch how Way of the Dragon was made, then understand that Game of Death was made in the same manner. Nothing magical by any means, it was a simple film with a simple story; mysterious island, kidnapping, drug lord, money, crime, good vs evil, martial arts, etc. What made it what it has become were the rumors over the years, but it was a simple story using mediocre methods. You cannot envision and compare Game of Death with that of a 2000 film, which is what many of the kids here are projecting in their minds, it's an old film. Three films tried to emulate Lee's idea for Game of Death, and all of them were very close, and those involved were in the know. It was no secret. Ramon Zamora came out with a Game of Death in 1974, George Lazenby with Shrine of the Ultimate Bliss in 1974 ,Joe Lewis with Force Five in 1981, all three incorporating Lee's original idea, an idea also borrowed for Enter the Dragon because Lee felt it was missing something, so the island, kidnapping and drug concepts were added. It's nothing special. However, the project Silliphant was working on with him, was.
