									Bruce Lee's father Lee Hoi Chuen was a famous
Cantonese opera star; because of this, Lee was
introduced into films at a very young age and
appeared in several short black-and-white films
as a child. By the time he was 18, he had appeared
in twenty films.


Here are some things that Bruce could do, most
normal humans can’t do.
      He could take in one arm a 75 pound barbell
       from a standing position with the barbell held
       against his chest and slowly stick his arms out
       locking them, holding the barbell there for
       several seconds.
      In a speed demonstration, he could snatch a
       dime off a person's open palm before they
       could close it, and leave a penny behind.
      He could hold a v-sit position for 30 minutes
       or longer.
      Lee could throw grains of rice up into the air
       and then catch them in mid-flight using chopsticks.
      He could perform one-hand push-ups using only the
       thumb and index finger.
      Lee could cause a 300lb sand bag to fly towards and
       thump the ceiling with a sidekick.


On 20 July 1973, Bruce was in Hong Kong, to
have dinner with former James Bond star
George Lazenby, then drove together to the
home of Lee's colleague Betty Ting Pei, an
actress. The three went over the script at
Betty's house, and then George left to
attend a dinner meeting.


Later Bruce complained of a headache, and
Betty gave him a painkiller. Around 7:30 pm,
he went to lie down for a nap. When he did not
turn up for dinner, Betty came to the apartment
but could not wake him up. A doctor was summoned,
who spent ten minutes attempting to revive him
before sending him by ambulance to Queen
Elizabeth Hospital. He was dead by the time
he reached the hospital.


There was no visible external injury; however,
according to autopsy reports, his brain had swollen,
from 1,400 to 1,575 grams (a 13% increase). Hs was
only 32 years old.
Bruce's wife Linda returned to her hometown of
Seattle, and had him buried at lot 276 of Lakeview
Cemetery.
