The Industry


Bruce Lee and Bruceploitation 101

Season 3, Ep. 10

When Bruce Lee died on June 20, 1973, Hollywood and Hong Kong scrambled to replace him, creating a misbegotten genre called "Bruceploitation."

But Bruce Lee was, of course, irreplaceable.

On the latest episode of The Industry, Dan Delgado details the rise of Bruce Lee — and the foolish, quixotic attempts to find any actor who could match him in terms of fighting prowess, charm and charisma.

All together now: Good luck with that.
