More About Enter the Dragon - Bruce Lee
 
 
 
Overview

Bruce Lee was immortalized in his films as a martial arts master and first-class entertainer. ENTER THE DRAGON was the first martial arts film that American audiences had witnessed, and was actually produced in both Hong Kong and Hollywood. Interestingly, ENTER THE DRAGON also set the stage for non-traditional, culturally specific narratives to make their way into Hollywood. Bruce Lee plays a kung fu master recruited by a foreign government to infiltrate the island of a megalomaniac martial artist named Han. Han's bodyguard is also found to have killed Lee's sister, giving Lee a personal vendetta to fight for. The Hall of Mirrors sequence towards the end of the film is now famous, as are Lee's incredibly gymnastic martial arts abilities. This trend-setting film holds up as an entertaining, engaging action movie, more than 30 years later.

Notes:
Theatrical release: August 15, 1973 After making several Hong-Kong-produced martial arts films, Lee had become a huge star in Asia. "Enter the Dragon", though filmed in Hong Kong, was Lee's first movie financed by Hollywood money, and it was the film that made him an international star. Unfortunately, he had no time to enjoy the acclaim. He died the same year at the age of 32 under circumstances that remain mysterious. "Return of the Dragon," completed in 1973, was released after his death. "Game of Death," the film Lee was working on at the time of his death, was pieced together using outtakes and released in 1978.
