Lee was a walking one-man army. But even one-man armies know when they might need something to make the fight a sure win. What was the one thing that the authorities would not provide Lee with for the operation?

When Lee asked for a gun, the intelligence group's agent refused. But it was because Han did not allow guns on his island.


Some intelligence agencies have multiple treaties with various groups, so they can exchange information and rely on other groups' support systems when they are operating abroad. What is the basic function of the intelligence group that hired Lee?

He's big, tall, and he can make mincemeat out of boards and blocks. What are the obvious specialties of O'Hara, Han's bodyguard?

Lee was told that there could be someone to help him on the island. But they're​ not sure if the spy is still alive.


What secret did one of the other men tell Lee?

Why does it seem like Williams, the black martial artist, has no choice but to go to the tournament?

The movie shows that Williams has great respect for his dojo. However, his tangle with the cops also shows that he doesn’t mind fighting at all, and probably feels the need to get some respect. It's this stubbornness with authority that gets him in trouble later on.


How do Roper and Williams know each other?

Roper and Williams were war veterans. They served in the Vietnam War together.


Bolo Yeung is a legend in martial arts movies and is known for his hulking frame when he was younger. In "Enter the Dragon," he also plays a big guy. Who is he working for?
