Thirty-two years ago, John Saxon was commissioned for twelve weeks in Hong Kong to work on the first Hollywood produced martial arts motion picture called, Enter The Dragon. He was to co-star with a little known Chinese actor called, Bruce Lee, who was a box office success in Hong Kong, but the west was totally ignorant of his skill as a screen entertainer.
Then once the film was released in the United States in August 1973, the film became a box office smash hit, and sent a tidal wave around the world which started what was to be known as the Kung Fu Craze of the seventies.
Unfortunately, only a few weeks before the film was released, one of the main leading actors died, this was to rock the martial arts phenomenon and make the film the ultimate martial arts film ever to be made, but it never made up for the loss of the King of Kung Fu, Bruce Lee.
Now thirty two years on, John Saxon, a keen photographer, has for the first time allowed the world to share some of his photographic diary, which he shot whilst filming for twelve weeks in Hong Kong on the set of the legendary movie, Enter The Dragon.
This beautifully red bound A4 diary contains some of the rarest photos of Bruce Lee ever taken.
Six unique unseen Enter The Dragon high gloss quality photographs from the John Saxon photographic archive showing Bruce Lee in action on the set of Enter The Dragon. All photos are embossed and stamped to ensure authenticity.
The diary contains a foreword by John Saxon and a exclusive in-depth interview with Hollywood legend John Saxon, discussing his twelve weeks in Hong Kong and his time on the set of Enter The Dragon with Bruce Lee, plus how these rare photos came into being.
With every deluxe hardbound volume of this rare photographic diary, is an embossed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
John Saxon has personally autographed every volume of this limited collectors item, showing his personal endorsement of the product.
This very special diary is a true celebration to the ultimate martial arts movie, Enter The Dragon and John Saxon's personal tribute to his late co-star and friend, Bruce Lee.
Unfortunately due to regulations, the diary is a limited edition to only 2500 copies, which have been published, after these are sold, it cannot be re-printed again.
Due to the nature of this product not only is it an ideal collectable for martial artists and Bruce Lee admirers, but also it is a profitable investment to any memorabilia entrepreneurs, and has the value that matches any of the similar product investments that are in the market place today.
