The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 

COOL 70'S DUDE: BRUCE LEE




With that taut, lean, sexy physique, boyish charm, and badass swagger that resonated through the screen, Bruce Lee had matinee idol status written all over him. There have been many other martial arts movie actors since his untimely death, but NONE will ever be loved as much as Bruce. Bruce Lee started his film career as a child actor in Hong Kong. He began taking martial arts classes in his teen years to thwart off bullies who targeted him because of his small frame. Bruce became a martial arts ,boxing, and dance champion in Hong Kong and decided to take his skills abroad. He returned to his birthplace, San Francisco (yes, he was born on US soil) to enroll into college and spread his knowledge and love of martial arts to eager Americans. During a karate demonstration he was discovered by a hairdresser from the set of the Batman TV series. This discovery led to his role as Kato on the TV series The Green Hornet. Disillusioned with the way his character was portrayed on television, Bruce went back to Hong Kong to make several successful action films. His popularity caught on in the States and a script was written for the big-budget Hollywood film Enter The Dragon. Sadly Bruce Lee had passed away before the film was released in 1973. He was only 33 years old. The film became an instant hit and solidified his status as a forever-young martial arts god.

Noteworthy Films:
Fists of Fury-1971
The Chinese Connection-1972
Enter The Dragon-1973
Return of The Dragon-1973
Game of Death-1978 (completed after his death)
