THE ROLLS ROYCE

Van Bullock's Rolls Royce

Van Bullock's car in the movie, a Rolls Royce, was in fact Anders' own car and
"M-HM 1634" his original license/number plate. The "M" stands for Munich,
the town he was living at the time in Germany.

 

KOMO'S SHOES

Komo's High Heels

In most of the scenes, Komo (Fernando Bilbao), wears shoes with about 2 inch heels to
appear larger. I guess that's the reason why he somehow moves insecure and clumsy...
(e.g. in his first scene he bumps his head when leaving the Rolls Royce)
When the endfight starts the heels suddenly disappear ;)

 

KOMO'S "SECRET"

In the English version it is said that Komo is castrated (!)
whereas in the German one he is not.

 

MOVIE LOCATION

The movie was shot in Madrid. It was Sean Connery, who helped Anders with the production
and suggested the Spanish movie company O'Dell to him.


FIRST GERMAN MARTIAL ARTS MOVIE

Roots of Evil was Germany's first "real" martial arts flick. Anders wrote the script,
made the directing, sang the theme tune, composed the music,
played the leading role and did the stunts as well.

 

SYCHRONIZATION

Dubbed by Manfred Seipold - German voice of Chuck Norris

Although Christian Anders (Austrian) speaks perfect German, his voice was dubbed
for the German version by Manfred Seipold - the German voice of
Chuck Norris (!) from 1977-1988.

 

KARATE SCHOOLS

In real life, Anders also led karate schools in Munich and Fürstenfeldbruck.
He even trained the Munich police for a while.

 

PRODUCTION COSTS

Producer Leo Kemkes invested more than 1.200.000 DM (Deutsche Mark)
in the movie.

 

DEEP ROY'S AGE

Deep Roy's Bio

Deep Roy was only 22 (!) years old when he played
