I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.
– Bruce Lee, My Definite Chief Aim (Jan. 1969)
This Friday marks the 40th Anniversary of Bruce Lee’s final film Enter The Dragon, which premiered in Hong Kong 6 days after the actor had passed away (he was 32). Its box office success would posthumously bestow on Bruce the Hollywood superstar status he craved but had always eluded him.
