Dragon--The Bruce Lee Story. As a teenager, the accomplished martial artist seriously injures a British citizen in Hong Kong, and is sent to San Francisco where he was born. While working as a dishwasher, Lee begins to study philosophy, and in time develops a personal martial arts discipline, Jeet Kune-Do, which blends Kung Fu fighting techniques with lessons gained from his philosophical research. Bruce Lee’s career as a movie sensation follows soon after, but with a sad ending. The film is based on a biography by his widow, Linda Lee Caldwell.
