    In his “first smash hit movie” (BBC), Bruce Lee stars as a young man who moves to Bangkok to take a job in an ice factory. But soon he finds that the factory is smuggling heroin…and that in order to restore justice to some missing coworkers, he must come face to face with the Big Boss for a climactic showdown!

    Bruce Lee is “powerful, humorous and charismatic” (Leonard Maltin) as a student who vows to uncover how his mentor was murdered. Though all signs point to the local Japanese Martial Arts School, the local police won't do anything…so he decides to restore honor to his teacher by taking matters into his own hands!

    Tang Lung (Lee) flies to Rome to help his friend, who is being forced by local gangsters to sell her restaurant. When Tang proves to be a threat to the syndicate's plans, they hire the best martial artists, including Colt (Chuck Norris). The two men battle in the ancient city's majestic Colosseum in what is “regarded by many as the finest martial arts combat ever committed to celluloid” (BBC)!

    Billy Lo is a young kung fu star with a promising career. Refusing to sign with the leader of a syndicate known for its exploitation of entertainers, Billy's martial arts mastery is put to the test when he is brutally harassed by his men. In a stunning showdown, Billy must “go one on one with each of the villains in some of the most explosive fight scenes ever filmed” (Leonard Maltin).

    BRUCE LEE: THE LEGEND (and the original version BRUCE LEE: THE MAN, THE LEGEND)

    Documentary Presentation (DVD)
    The documentary highlighted Lee's early childhood films and touched on a more personal side of the man. The film also offered a peek into his then Hong Kong home, his studio office and more glimpses from behind the scenes of Lee's two films ENTER THE DRAGON and GAME OF DEATH.

    Ten years later, Golden Harvest revamped the title and added more production value with new interviews, footage from Lee's appearances in the Longstreet TV series and additional action segments, including outtakes from GAME OF DEATH. In the United States, BRUCE LEE: THE LEGEND premiered on syndicated television, along with the other Bruce Lee films. They were a ratings blockbuster.

    I AM BRUCE LEE Documentary Presentation (DVD)
    Produced by Derik Murray, Network Entertainment, Bruce Lee Enterprises and Leeway Media Group, and directed by Pete McCormack, I AM BRUCE LEE delves deeper into the compelling saga behind Bruce Lee than ever before and deftly unravels Lee's fascinating life through his own words and visually stunning actions, as well as through the eyes of his family, close friends and luminaries from the world of sports and entertainment. The film also examines Lee's connections to the modern field of Mixed Martial Arts.

    Among the notable luminaries featured in this film are NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, renowned boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, Academy Award® nominated actor Mickey Rourke, Emmy Award winning actor Ed O'Neill, actress and MMA fighter Gina Carano, multiplatinum recording artist Taboo (Black Eyed Peas), UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, and UFC President Dana White, who calls Lee the “Father of Mixed Martial Arts.” Other interviews featured in the film include celebrated writer and director Reginald Hudlin, boxer Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, and MMA fighters Cung Le and Stephan Bonnar. The people who knew Lee best, his daughter Shannon Lee and wife Linda Lee Cadwell, as well as his friends and associates including legendary martial artists Dan Inosanto, Bob Wall and Gene LeBell, offer unprecedented insights into his private life and career.

    Their candid perspectives, in combination with rarely seen videos, archival photos and footage from Lee's groundbreaking martial arts action films, further establish I AM BRUCE LEE as the definitive look at a man whose legacy will endure forever.
