Response to Enter the Dragon Cameraman Charles Lowe Interview

Good interview on Charles Lowe. I think the interviwer is Chaplin Chang, sounds like his voice.

2 things Charles said left a deep impression:

(1) Charles said on the evening of Jul 20 1973, Bruce was supposed to meet him at the Jap restaurant but failed to turn up. He called his house at 6.30pm and somebody said Bruce had an 'accident.' Charles rushed over to Bruce's house and saw '4 students' of Bruce there. They told him Bruce might not be able to return home. Charles asked Brandon where his father was. Brandon said his dad went movie (shooting). Later, Charles left the house.

I know this account is not new and has been repeated many times. Charles is a holy Christian and didn't seem to be lying. If what he said was true, then Bruce might have forgotten about his date with Charles (Bruce was quite forgetful on the last 2 months prior to his death) because he was supposed to meet Raymond Chow and George Lazemby at the Jap restaurant to discuss about G.O.D. on that fateful evening. If they were all meeting at the same Jap restuarant which Bruce used to hang out, then Charles should have seen Chow and Lazemby during that timing (6-6.30pm) but he didn't mentioned about seeing them. Maybe it's a different Jap restaurant.

Also, many would be wondering why the news of Bruce 'meeting with a mishap' had happened few hours earlier? Probably Charles had gotten the timing wrong. Those people in Bruce's house were supposed to be around 10 plus where Chow called Linda to get her to go to the hospital immediately.

(2) Charles said Bruce told him after he came back from States in late June 1973 that his headache was due to a 'tumor' in his head. He said he trusted Charles and told him not to tell anyone about it. Also, after he finished his busy schedule, he asked Charles to accompany him to the States to do the operation to get rid of the 'tumor' in October that year.
Well, the dead report didn't show that Bruce had a 'tumor' but had a brain edema instead. Maybe Bruce guessed that he had a 'tumor' and that was the cause of his headache. Anyway, great info from this cameraman.
