Bruce Lee is a major influence on modern cinema. During his incredibly brief acting period, he made films that changed Asian cinema and proved that Asian actors could become Hollywood stars. In episode 19, I cover the life and films of Bruce Lee.
From his childhood he was destined to be a star and a force to reckoned with. He was driven and ambitious and never gave up. A lot of the things that have become cliched in modern martial arts films come directly from Bruce Lee.
This episode I cover Fist of Fury aka The Chinese Connection, Way of the Dragon aka Return of the Dragon and Enter the Dragon.
