He experienced success as soon as he went home with a movie he helped create called: "Fist of Fury," which there's a cool fight scene between he and Chuck Norris. Besides being an actor, Bruce also had skills in producing, directing, and script writing/In his next film (Game of Death), he taught Kareem Abdul-Jabbar how to fight. It was interesting watching one man who's twice as tall as the other, get into a fight. Spoiler alert: Bruce kills Kareem. :) Warner-Brothers came crawling back sending people to see Bruce in Hong Kong and convincing him to star in a movie that ended up being the greatest performing martial arts film of all time: "Enter the Dragon."
Lee came to America to start Kung Fu training studios (an unheard of concept then), but because Hollywood snagged him up and so many male actors were getting one-on-one coaching from him, he never got to achieve this particular dream.

He had just finished wrapping up "Enter the Dragon. " He was 32 years old at the time. and had a wife and two children, a boy and a girl.
