Fist of Fury likely changed Jackie Chan's life. He served as stuntman with the name Chan Yuen-lau in this film, following in the footsteps of Big Brother Sammo Hung in The Valliant Ones to double for the Japanese villain, played by Hashimoto Riki. Legend has it that his remarkable stunts and dedicated work ethics caught the eyes of producer Willie Chan, who eventually became his personal manager, shepherding his career in the early years. Watching fight scenes featuring Hashimoto, it's not difficult to understand why Willie Chan was impressed. The stunts were phenomenal!
