Remembering Bruce Lee
The Lees returned to their native Hong Kong when Bruce was only 3 months old. There, Lee spent his formative years learning the Wing Chun kung fu that would become the basis for his own brand of martial arts. His fighting skills, plus a few acting lessons, were the building blocks that would eventually make him a star. Theatrics came naturally to young Lee; by the time he was 18, he had already appeared in 20 Hong Kong films. His first starring role was as Kid Cheung, above, in the 1950 film The Kid.
