Overview

One of the 20th century's most famous martial artists, iconic actor Bruce Lee dazzled audiences with amazing stunts. Bruce became a superstar in Hong Kong, where he grew up, and he hoped to find fame in Hollywood. Almost single-handedly, Bruce Lee introduced kung fu to mainstream Western cinema. His crossover appeal also challenged the notion that English-speaking viewers wouldn't want to watch an Asian leading man.
