    Good news by way of Quentin Tarantino, he says in a giant interview that
    Personally, I think/hope that he ended up as a a good character actor in smaller movies and the occasional studio picture. Sorta like Lee Van Cleef or Lee Marvin where he kept working in good and bad movies and today, he'd be best remembered for having done some cool low budget movies in the 70's and 80's.

    Also, that interview is a must for any fan of the movie. Here's a link: http://thenewbev.com/blog/2019/09/tarantino-on-hollywood/

    For a 4 season series, isn't 48 episodes an awfully low number for a show of that time? Or was he not on the series every week? (I know it's fictional.)

    Thanks for the link! A couple friends of mine who have gone to see this film at the New Beverly, say that they try to have one of the actors there for a short meet and greet or intro or Q&A before the film. Last week or thereabouts the little girl Lancer actress was there, Julia Butters. My friend who went this week said Mike Moh was there. They showed an extended Lancer episode scene before the movie as an extra treat. Also the theatre has posters around for movies all starring Rick Dalton.

    Maybe I should go a third time! Last time I saw it (in 35mm) at the Vista Theatre, which is approaching it's 100th birthday in a couple years!

    I don't think that Bruce Lee himself would've reacted this way. I think her begging the Chinese government to not screen this inadvertently affects Lee's reputation as a fearless badass more than anything in this movie.

    (We should probably also burn every copy of Game of Death while we're at it, because that is WAY more actually-disrespectful to him.)

    I don't know about that as I can't get into the head of a man that's been dead for 45 years.
