A special 30th anniversary presentation showcasing nearly 3 hours of footage on the life and career of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Presenting the only official tributes to Bruce Lee by his friends and partners at Golden Harvest studios, this unique DVD package brings together for the first time the acclaimed documentary features The Legend and The Man and the Legend.

The Man and the Legend
Produced in the days and weeks immediately following Bruce Lee’s death, this moving programme includes rare and extensive footage of the Hong Kong memorial service attended by celebrities such as Sammo Hung and George Lazenby and a unique tour of Bruce’s Kowloon Tong home and training equipment. A section of the programme also contains what is believed to be the only remaining Cantonese recording of Bruce Lee’s voice in existence today. This section, which reveals details for an unrealized movie project, has now been translated into English for the first time.

The Legend
Featuring extensive footage from Bruce Lee’s childhood movies as well as famous scenes from iconic 60s TV series Longstreet, James Garner’s Marlowe and extended out-takes from Bruce Lee’s Game of Death, The Legend is an in-depth look at Bruce Lee’s life and career which is underpinned with interviews with Golden Harvest C.E.O. Raymond Chow and Bruce Lee’s leading lady Nora Miao. A specially created section also combines Bruce Lee’s hand-drawn combat illustrations with demonstrations of students showing the practical applications of his fighting art, ‘Jeet Kune Do’.

Format: VHS Tape
Theatrically released in Hong Kong sometime in October of 1973, hence a mere three months after the untimely passing of the great superstar, this is still the most remarkable tribute ever produced in memory of Bruce Lee. It's a raw kind of documentary, actually the very first one dedicated to Lee, in the sense that it captures the local film community and Hong Kong in general experiencing deep grief and bewilderment for the loss of their greatest film star up until that time, namely in the initial footage of Bruce's funeral proceedings. Some critics have argued that Raymond Chow, who produced this feature and all of Lee's famous martial arts themed movies, showed his exploitative vein by boldly 'chasing' the deceased actor's widow, Linda Lee, in the days following his death, and even invading the intimacy of the couple's home in Hong Kong, showing their private possessions being removed, and so on. That sounds way too intrusive for someone who claimed to be Bruce Lee's true friend, aside from being his business partner, and wanted to honour Lee's memory with this film.
Nonetheless, what stands out in this film is the rarity of material and memorabilia related to Bruce Lee, for it shows seldom seen clips of a few of his childhood movies, and dozens and dozens of unseen photographs of several periods of his life. That alone, together with sections of his incredibly popular 'kung-fu' movies being presented, is what the hardcore fans are seeking, and "The Man and the Legend" certainly delivers in that department.

If you're interested in the man behind the films then these documentaries are extraordinary!! Less focussed on Bruce Lee's films, and more about the man, his philosophies and what influenced him. Contained some very rare footage I've never seen before and really opened my eyes to what Bruce acheived and stood for away from the cameras. Only criticism is that quite a lot of footage is repeated across the two documentaries - but well worth a watch!

Bruce at his very best where rare interviews and film clips guide you through separate stages of his life from a baby to childhood to young acting career inspired by his father. His venture into the film industry to the beloved art of kung fu and jeet tue su that carved bruce into the history books with his remarkable concentration for art and style of which we all loved him for.
This is a must for bruce lee fans all over and rare footage show how talented Bruce Lee really was and his own words on what his beliefs and religions stood for.

This DVD is an absolute must for all people interested in Bruce Lee's life. I believe it's the first & only DVD to show honestly how the life behind the screen of the man we know as Bruce Lee really was.

A really worthwhile purchase.
