Enter the Dragon (1973)
Enter the Dragon is a 1973 Hong Kong martial arts action film directed by Robert Clouse; starring Bruce Lee, John Saxon and Jim Kelly. This was Bruce Lee's final film appearance before his death on 20 July 1973. The film was released on 26 July 1973, six days after Lee's death, in Hong Kong. He was also one of the film's writers. Often considered one of the greatest martial arts films of all time, in 2004, Enter the Dragon was deemed "culturally significant" in the United States and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Enter the Dragon was the first Chinese martial arts film to have been produced by a major Hollywood studio – Warner Bros. and was produced in association with Lee's Concord Production Inc. The film is largely set in Hong Kong. Among the stuntmen for the film were members of the Seven Little Fortunes, including Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao. This was arguably instrumental in the trio's further association with Golden Harvest studios, which later launched their careers. The portly Hung is shown fighting Lee in the opening sequence of the movie and Chan shows up as a henchman when Lee is discovered inside Han's underground lair.
