TMC PRESENTS BRUCE LEE: THE LEGEND
On November 27 Sunday, TMC presents a marathon of Bruce Lee’s movies from 8 AM to 6 PM, in remembrance of the legendary martial artist on his would-be 76th birthday.
Commencing the special presentation is The Big Boss (8 AM), the film that made Bruce Lee famous across Asia. In this 1971 classic, Lee plays a man who never engages in violence because of a vow he made to his mother. But when his cousins are brutally murdered, he makes a new vow to avenge them.
In Fist of Fury (10 AM), Lee plays Chen Zhen, the protégé of a martial artist master who is believed to have died from an illness. When his memory is insulted by Japanese martial arts students, calling the Chinese “weaklings” in comparison to them, Chen readily defends their honor, especially when he discovers that there was foul play in the death of his master.
In the action comedy The Way of the Dragon (12 NN), Lee plays Tang, a martial artist asked to help protect a restaurant in Rome from gangsters. Tang finds himself pitted against Japanese and American karate experts. This record-breaking film was produced and directed by Bruce Lee himself.
Various stock footage of Bruce Lee are seen in his posthumous movies The Game of Death (2 PM) and Tower of Death (4 PM). The first film, which came out 5 years after Lee’s death, tells the story of a martial arts movie star named Billy Lo who is hunted down by a syndicate. He manages to fake his death and goes after his enemies. In the sequel released in 1981, Billy Lo meets his death and his brother Bobby must avenge him.
