Enter the Dragon is a 1973 martial arts action film, directed by Robert Clouse, written by Michael Allin, and starring Bruce Lee, John Saxon, and Jim Kelly. This was Bruce Lee’s final film appearance before his death on 20 July 1973 at age 32. The film was first released in Hong Kong on 26 July 1973, six days after Lee’s death.
Often considered one of the greatest martial arts films of all time, in 2004 the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. Among the first films to combine martial arts action with the emerging Blaxploitation genre, its success led to a series of similar productions combining both genres. The film’s themes have also generated scholarly debate about how they reflect the changes taking place within post-colonial Asian societies following the end of World War II.
Bruce Lee plays a martial-arts expert determined to help capture the narcotics dealer whose gang was responsible for the death of his sister. Lee enters a kung fu competition in an attempt to fight his way to the dealer’s headquarters with the help of some friends.
