United States, Hong Kong 1973 102 mins.

Bruce Lee (in his last role) plays Shaolin master Mr. Lee, who is recruited to infiltrate the island of sinister crime lord Mr. Han by going undercover as a competitor in Han’s kung fu tournament. The Bond-style premise gives Lee ample opportunity to showcase his incredible, almost balletic Wing Chun chops—especially in the now-legendary climactic fight in a hall of mirrors. “The Fred Astaire of martial arts.”—Pauline Kael.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
