Bruce Lee: The Man, the Myth (1976)
Bruce Lee: The Man, the Myth, The Legend
The film chronicles Lee’s life beginning with him leaving China to go to University in Seattle. Most of the benchmarks of Lee’s later life (cast in Green Hornet television series, marriage to Linda Lee, stardom in Hong Kong, death) are covered, with a somewhat less tenuous relationship to the truth as in previous Lee biopics. Basically, it is a highly fictionalized biography of the legendary Bruce Lee, from his college life untill his death.
This is one of the “Bruceploitation” movies that Hong Kong produced in the 1970’s and 80’s. While this was supposed to a biography about the life of Bruce Lee, it is much more concerned with presenting Kung Fu street fights rumor and gossip, whether based on any true factual reality or not, might have at one time had it said Lee had a penchant for getting involved in.
