When Tarantino learned that Uma Thurman was pregnant, he postponed filming. Thurman's stuntman was Tiger Chen. Kevin Costner was the first candidate for the role of Bill, but he opted for his own directing, Fellow Armed Forces. More than 400 liters of art were used for the large massacre scene.
When she goes to Japan after the Bride O-Ren in the film, she wears the same coveralls that Bruce Lee wore in the final stages of The Deadly Game. When he cuts off his opponents ’legs with a sword while spinning on the ground, that scene was also lifted from a Bruce Lee movie, Raging Fist. In it, Lee hits the feet of the Japanese warriors with a nunchak, a gun-like weapon.
