@Ozzie, thought this might be of interest to you, with you living in Carlifornia, and having an interest in BL related locations.

From the old photo of a check stub with Bruce's home address printed on said stub dated August 16, 1966, I was able finally to record where "THE LITTLE DRAGON" lived when "THE GREEN HORNET" premiered and showed across the land. His address was BARRINGTON PLAZA APARTMENTS- 11740 WILSHIRE BL, APT A-2308, LA, CA... "THE GREEN HORNET" TV show was shown from SEPTEMBER 9, 1966 TO JULY 14, 1967. I found said address from an always "WISHED FOR" WEBSITE THAT I THANKFULLY FOUND- "WWW.BRUCELEEWASHERE.COM!!!....

I'm guessing this image was taken, around the time Steve McQueen was training with BL?.

I don't know who the instructor in the Black Belt is?.

Apparently, according to Getty, it was taken in San Francisco during the filming of Bullitt. The name of the instructor was not given

Ok, so I think I might have find the answer to my own question, at the start of this thread.

Here's a question for fellow fan's. Is this a Lee with his son, and a celebrity students/friends daughter?. I'm not sure of the location of the house, but I figured this photo was taken around the time of the Green Hornet?.

Take a look at the image above, then look at the far right of the picture below, I think those might be the same steps the BL picture was taken on?.

Another Bruce Lee martial arts student was screenwriter Stirling Silliphant, who wrote Lee into the James Garner gumshoe mystery "Marlowe" (1969). Silliphant later wrote a character for Lee to play in the TV series "Longstreet," who imparted wisdom to the blind investigator played by James Franciscus.
