Default Anyone remember "Enter the Dragon"?

It's been 40 years since the Bruce Lee classic hit theaters and made him a star in the USA. Ironically on the 40th anniversary of the film, co-star Jim Kelly passed away today. Kelly was a championship level martial artist in real life, and didn't need special effects or computer generated graphics on screen with Lee and John Saxon. RIP JK.

Bruce Lee was great in that movie. Jim Kelly and Chuck Norris too. The rest of the movie kind of sucked but Bruce Lee was like nothing we had ever seen. After that movie everybody was Kung Fu fighting....

I loved that movie! There was nothing else like it back then.

I am sorry to hear that Jim Kelly passed away.

It was a masterpiece in it's own special way. Hope both Bruce and Jim are resting in peace. Ed

Chuck Norris wasn't in "Enter the Dragon". He starred with Bruce Lee in "The Way of the Dragon".

Correct. He is probably thinking of John Saxon.

Rest in Peace Jim. I also liked him as a soldier in: Pork Chop Hill.

I remember that. He had the pleasure of having his neck snapped by Bruce Lee.
