Jeez he was fast some of that footage is on the Bruce Lee dvd set. Why they put Game of Death and not Enter the Dragon is still a mystery to me.

That's funny, I just had a conversation with one of my friends about the DVD set. I noticed as part of a five disc set, he has all of Bruce Lee's movies except for Enter The Dragon, which many people believe was Bruce's best film. Instead of Enter The Dragon, they included Game Of Death 2.

Why? I have no idea, but I know that's one of the main reasons people get confused by it. Bruce Lee only ever did five or six movies during his entire life. Game Of Death 1 and Game Of Death 2 are actually not Bruce Lee films, and yet they are still being pawned off as Bruce Lee films to this day. I think that should be illegal to do, but, whatever, it's Raymond Chow.

Anyways, I do remember seeing a film called Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey, which is actually pretty good. Some people consider it the 'true' version of Game Of Death, and Bruce Lee plays in it with some amazing actors and martial artists. It is basically the Game Of Death, but done the way Bruce Lee wanted it. It contains some unseen footage that was never in Game Of Death, and Bruce Lee himself is the director of the film.

90% of all Bruce Lee movies are played by Bruce Le, or Bruce Li, which is not the same actor. Bruce Le / Bruce Li is 'not' the real Bruce Lee, and me and my friend had a long argument about that today during one of our conversations. Bruce Lee died in 1973, but Game Of Death did not get released until 1978. From then on you have Bruce Le, or Bruce Li, and during the 1980's we see a lot of films being pawned off by Raymond Chow as Bruce Lee films. The fact is, none of them are Bruce Lee films.

Enter The Dragon was the only movie Bruce Lee ever played in which you hear his real voice all the way through, uncut and unaltered. In every other Bruce Lee film, someone dubs his voice, and translates Chinese into English. Bruce Lee didn't speak much English in any of his movies, except for Enter The Dragon, which is the first time you hear Bruce Lee's true voice without a voiceover. That's something a lot of people didn't know. Enter The Dragon was also an American made filming project, so the quality of Enter The Dragon is actually a lot better than you will find in any other Bruce Lee film.

Another story I hear all the time is that Jason Scott Lee, the man who played in Dragon: A Bruce Lee Story is actually Bruce Lee's youngest son who was kept a secret after Brandon, and all this and that. It's not true, Jason Scott Lee is not at all related to Bruce Lee, so don't believe that. Another thing I hear all the time is that Dragon is based on a true story, and that Wong Jack Man paralyzed Bruce Lee during a fight scene in the movie. Although the movie Dragon is based on a true story, it has been through Hollywood and back, so not everything you see in that movie is 100% accurate. Bruce Lee did fight Wong Jack Man in real life, but it was not in some secret underground Chinese temple. They fought at Bruce Lee's studio in Oakland, and the outcome of that conflict is still debated to this day. Some say Bruce won, some say Wong Jack Man won. What really happened, I don't want to get into that, but Bruce Lee actually broke his back during a faulty training exercise by trying to lift too much weight. Nobody broke Bruce's back, except for Bruce, who of course broke his own back. He just pushed himself way too hard, and that's what really happened.

Nobody ever beat Bruce Lee in a real fight, at least not since he was a child. After he took up martial arts, he never lost a fight. Of course, I can't say that he actually got involved that much in fighting. He was a martial artist, and martial arts is not about fighting, so I don't think he was really looking to fight anyone as he got older. Some people say Bruce Lee fought Jacky Chan, Bolo Yeung, Robert Wall, Chuck Norris, Mike Stone, Gene Lebell, Dan Inosanto, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Jhoon Rhee, this and that. The truth is, Bruce Lee never fought anyone that I know of except for Wong Jack Man, and a few other guys from the Japanese community and the college university that he went to. There was never any fight between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris, or any of those guys like they say. Bruce Lee had a lot of friends in the martial arts community and all of these guys are people who Bruce Lee trained with. They may have appeared in his movies, they may have fought each other during some of those movies, but in real life they never fought. These guys were professional martial artists who respected one another. They were friends, not enemies. Bruce did get into a lot of fights in Hong Kong when he was younger. He actually knocked out the son of one of the kingpins of the Kowloon Triads, and he also became the boxing champion in highschool. There were a few incidents during the making of some of his movies behind the scenes and backstage, but as far as Bruce Lee fighting all the time, and losing to someone here or there, that simply is not true. Bruce Lee didn't fight much, and when he did, he never lost a fight.

Even when he broke his back, the doctor told him that he would never walk again, but Bruce Lee fought and eventually he won that battle. Enter The Dragon was filmed after that had happened, so when you watch Enter The Dragon, well, that 'is' Bruce Lee.

The fight scene in th movie with Jason Scott Lee is as you said pure hollywood. I read a semi autobioghraphical book on Bruce a couple years ago. According to the author when the challenger showed his face at Bruce's dojo, Bruce chased him all around the dojo until the guy was out of breath and then Bruce sat on him. Not sure how true the story is but it did make for a good read and had me laughing for a while.

I don't like to comment too much about that incident. I actually have a friend who trained under Wong Jack Man in San Francisco, who I respect very much as a martial artist. What I can tell you is that I was not there when that particular incident took place, but I spoke to some of Bruce Lee's students and the people who witnessed the fight, and they all say pretty much the same thing, that neither Bruce Lee nor Wong Jack Man were badly injured. It was shortly afterwards that Bruce Lee decided he wasn't going to do Wing Chun any more, and so he developed Jeet Kune Do.

I think the thing i respect the most about Bruce was his view that MA should be available to anyone & everyone who wants to learn. He broke so many cultural barriers. To me that is his greatest legacy.
