I don't think Ted Thomas directly dubbed anyone of the character's played by Bruce Lee. Though he can be heard as the other character's such as the cook in Fist of Fury played by Huang Chung-Hsin.

My guess for Fist of Fury and The Way of the Dragon is that Bruce Lee is dubbed by Barry Haigh. For Tower Of Death my guess is Billy Lo is dubbed by Barry Haigh and Bobby Lo by Warren Rooke.

As for The Big Boss there are 2 different English dubs.

Interesting. Just for encouraging discussion, why BB is on your top? And ETD on the bottom?

BB is my favourite one..I liek the whole story, I like the character Bruce plays..also Bruce Lee is still kind of innocent, in his later films hes already too full of himself and Im not talking about the acting... way of the dragon was the first Bruce film I ever saw..also love the story..chinese guy goes abroad, hes a bit of a country bumbkin etc also it was Bruce Lee´s movie, his baby so to speak..so maybe it has the most of himself in it....fist of fury is also nice but sometimes it drags a long a bit..etd is too westernised for my taste... and hes too arrogant in this film...

 

having said all that; I still love all his four and half movies (even god)... its just that order...

 

having said that.. ...  I like some of ho chung tao films better than any of Bruce Lee´s films..hehe but

thtas just me... :D

Somebody over at Nick Clarke's (greenbamboo's) forum stated Louis Delgado, not Joe Lewis, not Chuck Norris, was Bruce Lee's first choice to portray his Way of the Dragon opponent. That's the only instance I've have ever read that. I asked anyone else if they read or heard that claim and got no reply.

Bruce Lee movies: All 6 films ranked worst to best

https://www.goldderby.com/article/2018/bruce-lee-all-6-films-ranked-worst-to-best-enter-the-dragon-fist-of-fury-news/amp/

Lee became a leading man after returning to Hong Kong to make “The Big Boss” (1971). It was the first in a series of martial arts films the actor would headline, including “Fist of Fury” (1972), “The Way of the Dragon” (1973), and the posthumously released “Game of Death” (1978).

Hollywood came calling once again with “Enter the Dragon” (1973), a big budget spectacular that could have launched the actor to superstardom had he not died from cerebral edema three weeks before it opened. (In a sad irony, son Brandon Lee, died in 1993 at the age of 28 while filming “The Crow” when an improperly loaded prop gun misfired.)

Tour our photo gallery above of Bruce Lee movies, and see if your favorite topped the list.

I have probably commented in this thread before but I still have to give top honors to WOTD. It’s a basic story with a decent little twist at the end. But, since it’s the only completed film that Bruce made with a decent fight scene, I have to give it the top spot. Well, the showdown between Bruce and Chuck is a classic. But, my favorite BL work would be the footage he shot for his version of GOD. Otherwise, FOF is perhaps technically overall Bruce’s best film. But, due to a lack of a great fight scene, it ends up in 2nd place. I would place ETD 3rd because it’s entertaining with some great classic lines; not much of a martial arts movie though. In last place for me is TBB. Nothing about that movie interests me except Bruce himself. It really is sad that Bruce died so soon as he was just getting started with WOTD and GOD.

We finalized the location for the shoot to complete the Game of Death, the right way. The owner and resident is a retired lawyer, so wish us luck in the negotiations and the permitting process. We will do it right.

Been a bit of a setback, maybe this won't be produced after all.

Anyone seen a Bruce Lee movie where Ted Thomas dubs his character's voice?

I don't recognise any of the voices on the 2nd, more well known, English dub for The Big Boss.

The original/rejected English dub however has been uploaded to Dailymotion:

 

I've not watched the whole thing but still, it sounds like rather appropriately Ted Thomas is the big boss, as for Bruce I'm not sure of his name but it sounds to me like this guy:
