Game of Death is a Hong Kong martial arts movie starring Bruce Lee. Lee started working on the movie in 1972, however he got an offer to star in Enter the Dragon, so he stopped working on this, and although he intended to finish the movie, he died suddenly in 1973. The movie was finished in 1978 by Robert Clouse (the director of Enter the Dragon) using the footage which Lee shot in 1972, and using a look-alike for the other scenes. It should be noted however, that the story of the finished movie is different from the original story written by Bruce Lee.

In the movie Bruce Lee is Billy Lo, an actor who becomes the target of the mob after he refuses a contract. After an attempt on his life Billy fakes his death (using actual footage of Bruce Lee's funeral) and goes to Macau to get the head of the mobsters, Dr. Land (Dean Jagger).

The following guns can be seen in the movie The Game of Death:

Smith & Wesson Model 19

Smith & Wesson Model 60

Ann (Colleen Camp) has a Smith & Wesson Model 60 in her bag when she tells Jim (Gig Young) on the phone that she'll kill Dr. Land. Later, Jim takes the gun away from her. When Ann is at the martial arts tournament in Macau, she pulls out the Model 60 to kill Dr. Land and Stick, but Billy, who is disguised as an old man prevents her from doing it.
