Enter The Dragon
In Linda Lee's book about her late husband, "Bruce Lee: The Man Only I Knew" she mentioned that Bruce was so fast that in Enter The Dragon, they had to slow down some of frames of his fights because they were concerned that the audience may think that the film was sped up to accent his quickness. His fights were either slowed down or shown at normal speed. His movements were never enhanced.
Also, the character O'Hara was Bruce's personal bodyguard. One would think it funny that Bruce Lee even had one, but he had to given his meteoric rise in cinema. I believe at one point, he was the highest paid international movie star of his time. Another interesting anecdote is in the scene when Bruce kicks O'Hara into the crowd, one of the extras actually broke his arm given the force of Bruce's kick while attempting to break O'Hara's fall.
