Response to GAME’s screentest & behind-scenes with Bruce Lee


Another rare shot of Bruce Lee hitting the skinny stuntman (choreography) with his ‘deadliest punch’ in GAME’s screentest at the Han’s trophy room.

When Bruce went over to HK to make movies in 1971, he brought along his fighting choreography experience in Hollywood and from his backyard training. During shooting, he taught actor/ stuntmen how to jerk their heads at the right moment when a blow was coming. Too slow in motion would be a contact, too fast would look too fake. The audience would detect it right away if the swing to the face seemed like a mile away or if the actor moved his head too early or too late. “Sometimes, they’d have to shoot over 100 times just to get the right shot,” Bruce said, “and we all expected getting hit in the process from time to time.”

Bruce also had to teach the cameraman how to shoot the choreographed fight scenes. “Without the right angle, no matter how much you practiced, you could never put realism into it. The audience would easily see it.”
