Guest Spot: Enter the Dragon (1973)

Martial artist and Hollywood actor Bruce Lee passed away a mere month before the release of his breakthrough film Enter the Dragon. Easily dismissed as a remake of Doctor No that rehashed a famous scene from Orson Welles's The Lady From Shanghai, Enter the Dragon has several puzzling loopholes neither the screenwriter, editor, or director could fix. However, this Hong Kong production cashed in on Lee’s California Connections, his personalized style of Jeet Kune Do, and his absolute determination to finally make a 'western' film his way.

Join Dylan Davis of The Super 70 Podcast as we go scene by scene and discuss how a forgone tragedy turned into not only the film Bruce Lee is most remembered for, but the seminal martial arts movie for an entire generation.
