Lee portrays Li, a Shaolin monk who is invited to a martial arts tournament sponsored by Shaolin master-turned-bad Han.

- Game of the Death, Dec 14 at 7:30pm
Bruce Lee’s last screen work (he died during the production), “Game Of Death” is a film that mystifies the man and the legend. Lee plays Billy Lo, a successful movie star, who is shot for refusing to join an international management syndicate. He fakes his own death as an opportunity to pursue the gang in secret. Although the death of Lee inevitably affected the final production of the film, it still contains some of the most unforgettable sequences in the history of cinema. The climax, in which Lee combats different masters of martial arts on each floor as he climbs his way to the top of a pagoda, is a perfect example. And the unique nunchaku battle with Danny Inasanto proves that Lee was years ahead of his time.
