1973, Warner Bros., 97 min, USA, Dir: Robert Clouse

Widely hailed as the legendary Bruce Lee’s finest film, ENTER THE DRAGON also helped break down the doors of American mainstream culture for the martial arts genre. Spectacular nonstop kung fu action as Lee and co-stars John Saxon, Jim Kelly, Bolo Yeung and Robert Wall compete in a deadly martial arts tournament on the island fortress of drug overlord Han (the deliciously evil Kien Shih). With memorable dialogue - "Boards don’t hit back!" - by screenwriter Michael Allin, and a killer score by Lalo Schifrin (TV’s "Mission Impossible").
