Iconic in both his martial arts craft and film portrayals, Bruce Lee sparked the popularity of the Far East fighting technique. These (3) movie posters were issued for theatre display during an early-1970s era in which Lee ranked among the biggest box office attractions. Includes:
The Chinese Connection measuring 28x 22”, this thick stock display depicts Lee in a series of colorized action poses; the rated “R” 1972 film was basically a tale of revenge sought for the killing of his teacher. Suitable for framed display, this scarce example is affected by a series of minor creases.
Game Of Death measuring 14 x 36”, the poster shows the principals (both good and evil) for the 1972 production in which Lee would star posthumously (the film was not released until 1978). Pictured and listed among the cast members is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a one-time student of Lee. The item showcases sharp edges/corners and presents beautifully.
Enter The Dragon a 27x41 US 1 Sheet theatre poster, this pop culture artifact was issued to advertise Lee's last film before his death (the movie was released in Hong Kong just six days after Lee's passing). The item features normal compacting folds and exhibits expected wear from theatre display. There is a series of minor wrinkles and tears, two of which have been mended by vintage transparent tape strips.
