FORUM SCHEDULED DOWNTIME

For those unaware, the launch of 36STYLES.COM is coming next week! This means we will be moving the forum to its new home. The new link to the forum will be https://www.36styles.com/kungfufandom ... bookmark it now!

The site as a whole, including the forum, will be down on Monday, March 2. To minimize the forum downtime, I plan on bringing the forum back online, even before implementing the new features, as setting these up will probably take some time. I will send out an email to all registered members once the forum is back up. 

Some exciting times are ahead for KUNG FU FANDOM!

Well...The quoting didn't work...The picture shown in the post I wanted to quote is exactly the one I found this morning on ebay and for which the seller asks for a crazy price...

This wuxia picture and the others taken at the Shaws' studios make me think that it would have been great to see Bruce Lee in a wuxia movie, and I'm sure that he would have been excellent ! Too bad that it never happened...

700 USD as a buy-it-now item, and around 90 or 100 USD as a bidding item, if I remember well.

Didn't you take a look to the ebay link ?

From what I remember, it wasn't signed.

I'm no expert but it might be an orignal picture taken from the actual negative?, rather than a reproduction.

Taken from the Shaw Brother's studio costume/screen test photo shoot. This had no connection to the earlier Golden Harvest period movie project.

There was also a period movie planned with Golden Harvest ? Are there any pictures of the project ? What would have been the plot ?

I recently got a movie poster magazine with all (I think) the pictures that have been taken at Shaws' studios, and I think that it's really too bad that Bruce Lee didn't have the luck to live old enough to be able to play in these period movies, it would have been great to see him in a wuxia movie...

Well, it seems that I'm not very skilled when I want to quote a picture in a post...

I can't believe what is written in this French page...Bruce reading an article on French boxing techniques and savate and deciding to learn them and transforming them in Jeet Kune Do...Who can believe this, here ?

Maybe I'm too suspicious and it's true, but it's difficult for me to believe this...

I'm under the impression there were a number of costume movie projects/idea's. Northern leg Southern Fist being one such example, the plots a little complicated to condense down into just a few sentences. The were period costume screen test shoots at both Golden Harvest in 1972 and later at Shaw Brother's in 1973.

 

The following excerpts from Steve Kerridges Bruce Lee Forever magazine, will be of interest to you. You might still be able to pick up a copy of the magazine special, they are taken from?.

Any pictures featuring this red brick back-drop, re-used from the Fist of Fury set. Were taken at Golden Harvest in 1972. You will also note that Bruce Lee looked fuller in the face, and was much healthier here.

That's the pictures I have.

So, I was mistaken. I was absolutely convinced that these had been shot at the Shaws' studios instead of Golden Harvest (I must confess that I haven't had time to read the text of the magazine...).

Quote

Bruce Lee is a national hero in China for the way he embodies Chinese pride and nationalism in his movies. Yet many in mainland China missed him the first time around – in the early 1970s – because movies such as Enter the Dragon and Fists of Fury were banned by Chairman Mao Zedong's Communist government as spiritual pollution and rightist sentimentality.

Out in Hong Kong with his wife Linda, sporting the hip Western 70's look that up-set the Hong Kong press so much. Long hair, flowery loud shirt, beard, and sunglasses.
