Bruce Lee's final film and probably his most memorable.

Bruce Lee's Final movie was Game of Death.  He died while shooting the movie. Causing some scenes to be shot with a very obvious body double.  Not only that but his character in the movie dies and they use footage from Bruce's actual funeral. 

What makes it real creepy is in the movie. He plays an actor who is killed on set when a prop gun shoots a real bullet.   Which is the same way Bruce's son died in real life.

I always thought Enter the Dragon was the last one.

Well.... Yes and no.  He was shooting Game of Death and took time off to shoot Enter The Dragon.  He died before he could return to Game of Death.  So they used the scenes he already shot, built a story around it and added a body double for some scenes.  

So in technicality Enter the Dragon was the last movie he shot.   But Game of Death was his last movie to be released.

Ironically, Bruce's son Brandon died while The Crow was being made.

Well, it didn't hurt to mention the name of the film.

True.  I guess I've just come to assume that it's common knowledge  Bruce Lee had a son named Brandon who died while filming The Crow.

Enter the Dragon? Pssh, everybody and their grandma's seen that one.

How about a movie where "Bruce Lee" meets Popeye, James Bond, and The Man with No Name?
It's called The Dragon Lives Again, and it's just one of the many, many insane kung fu movies from back in the day.



You can even watch it right now, if you have an hour.

Bruce was a man of wisdom.

That he was.   He studied philosophy in college.
