Bruce Lee: The Lost TV Interview

Bruce Lee’s acting career began on television in 1966, when he landed a part in The Green Hornet. (Watch his amazing audition here). But it took another five years before he gave his first (and only) television interview. For 25 minutes in December 1971, the martial arts star sat down with Pierre Berton, a Canadian journalist, in Hong Kong. And their conversation covered a fair amount of ground – Lee’s success starring in Mandarin films …. despite only speaking Cantonese; his difficulty developing a career in a country still hostile toward China; and his work training other Hollywood stars in the martial arts. Berton probably never scored many points for his interviewing style. But Berton is not the point here. It’s all about Lee. via BrainPickings
