Bruce Lee: The Man, The Myth, originally released as Li Hsiao Lung chuan chi and also known as Bruce Lee: True Story, is a 1979 Bruceploitation biopic that stars Bruce Li (A/K/A Ho Chung Tao) as famed martial artist Bruce Lee. The film chronicles his life beginning with Lee leaving China to go to University in Seattle. Most of the benchmarks of Lee's later life (cast in Green Hornet television series, marriage to Linda Lee, stardom in Hong Kong, death) are covered, with a somewhat less tenuous relationship to the truth as in previous Lee biopics. Interestingly, Linda Lee is played by Lynda Hirst, an English women who was an army wife stationed in Hong Kong at the time of the filming. The director, having searched, unsuccessfully, for some time for a suitable 'Linda Lee' among available actresses, came across Lynda Hirst whilst out shopping in a local market and remarked on her resemblance to the late star's wife. On learning she was a 'Westerner' he immediately cast her in the (small) role. Lynda's real life sons can also be seen, very briefly, in the movie as Lee's children.
