78 years old

 

This is the age Bruce Lee would have been today . I can´t help but feel sad every year thinking what great things he would have accomplished by now.

Yesterday there was an article in the paper. It does not stop to amaze me how people come with new theories about his death 45 years after his passing. What the article was about is not worth mentioning,  they did not even have their facts right,  so I won´t talk about it. After 45 years I don´t believe in new so called theories , whether I believe in the official story or not is not to be discussed here, people should believe what they want but what is important here is what he did with his life.

So today is a celebration of the date of birth of Bruce Lee, the greatest martial artist of all times. I had the chance to visit the hospital where he was born and even stand outside the door of the room. This was in 2010 at the Chinese Hospital in San Francisco, and this is during this trip  that I met his family and some of his friends , this was  one of the best experiences of my life.

Raymond Chow

It is important to know about the story of Bruce Lee and the people who had an impact on his life. We just learned about the passing of Raymond Chow and I  took some some highlights out of the Guardian,  published on nov 3rd.

“Raymond Chow, Hong Kong producer who found Bruce Lee.

Chow made Lee and Jackie Chan stars after deciding to break away from the low-budget ethic of kung fu genre

Legendary Hong Kong film producer Raymond Chow, who introduced Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan to the world and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the big screen, has died at 91.

Chow was a journalist who became a publicist for Shaw Brothers Studios, which churned out hundreds of films and popularised the kung fu genre. Studio founder Run Run Shaw soon moved Chow to the production side of the business after Chow complained that the movies – made on low budgets and short schedules – weren’t good enough.

He soon outmanoeuvred his former employer to grab the actor who would become synonymous with kung fu movies. Chow signed Bruce Lee in 1971 after seeing him on a Hong Kong TV variety show.

Golden Harvest signed Lee to a three-picture deal, with each breaking all Hong Kong box office records.

Those movies were followed by Enter the Dragon, the first Chinese martial arts film to be produced by a major Hollywood studio, Warner Bros. Lee died days before the film’s release in 1973.”
