    He did a few films after that. He was the baddie in the 1975 Kung Fu classic 'The Man From Hong Kong" aka "the Dragon Flies" and had one of the most memorable demises in cinema.

    Don't be a fucking tit all your life.

    George Lazenby is this fucking thread-winner.
    It meets ALL the criteria prefectly.

    No-one, except a cunt like you, has even heard of this fringe-category movie let alone seen it.

    So, fuck off and post something inane in the Political thread.






    Then kill yourself.

    Had numerous and famously well-known movie and TV roles before and an equally famous movie after.

    Ultimate fail.

    George lazemby is a good one. For the record I thought he was a better bond than all others not named Sean Connery

    GTFOH!

    TMFHK or The Dragon Flies is a freaking Kung Fu classic that if you have never heard of it then you might be a teenager living in your mom's basement. I watched that film when it was released on 1975 and watched it two more times after that. After all this was Jimmy Wang Yu stepping into a role that was written for Bruce Lee so the curiosity factor was very high. It was a freaking entertaining film for its time and the theme song "Sky High' by Jigsaw became the #1 radio hit simultaneously.

    Enter The Dragon is by FAR his most famous movie. None are "equally as famous."

    word.

    Still His previous films were well known by people who specifically love that genre. The Big Boss, and Fist of Fury have huge followings. Way of the dragon also.

    Game of Death is only worth watching for the 26 minutes of Bruce Lee original footage (three fight scenes). The rest of the revamped patch-up edited, disgustingly amateurish film, was shit. They couldn't even bother to do Lee's original plot treatment which was more interesting than 'actor Billy Lo seeking revenge for his own faked death'.*vomit, puke* The only decent about that film, besides Lee's fight scenes which were inferior to ETD, was John Barry's musical score. Better than what the film deserved.

    Yeah but it's since become a well-known movie...and incredibly iconic, e.g. the yellow tracksuit...the pagoda fight scenes with 'level bosses'...

    You mean the RESTAURANT fight scenes (remember: they changed the plot and it was ridiculous). Heck, they even added the Chuck Norris 'Way of the Dragon' fight scene just to cash in on the popularity of Norris, who publicly trashed that move as he never consented to have a screen credit and much less be part of the film's publicity.

    Heck look at this reenactment of Lee's original treatment and tell me if this wasn't a better plot:

    Geez are you naturally THAT dumb or a moron by choice? the freaking Pagoda concept was from Lee's original story that is in that video I posted that you refused to watch. In the abortion that was released on 1975 there was no pagoda in the plot but the baddie's five stories RESTAURANT...which was freaking stupid as didn't resembled a freaking restaurant because it was a pagoda! Do you get it now?

    Nobody questions that the original Lee footage is iconic, BUT as a whole the movie was shit with the lousy Bruce Lee clone and the shitty editing job. I watched the film in its entirety when it was released on 1975, but can't stomach to watch the whole thing again. I prefer the documentary 'Bruce lee: A Warrior's Journey' that shows the original concept plus a better editing job without cutting out the other actors, Chieh Yuan & James Tien, fight scenes. Have you watched that superior version? (that clip you posted is from that documentary btw)
