Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee remains the greatest icon of martial arts cinema and a key figure of modern popular media. Had it not been for Bruce Lee and his movies in the early 1970s, it's arguable whether or not the martial arts film genre would have ever penetrated and influenced mainstream North American and European cinema and audiences the way it has over the past four decades.

The influence of East Asian martial arts cinema can be seen today in so many other film genres including comedies, action, drama, science fiction, horror and animation.....and they all have their roots in the phenomenon that was Bruce Lee.

Lee was born "Lee Jun Fan" November twenty-seventh 1940 in San Francisco, the son of Lee Hoi Chuen, a singer with the Cantonese Opera. Approximately one year later the family returned to Kowloon in Hong Kong and at the age of five years, a young Bruce begins appearing in children's roles in minor films including The Birth of Mankind and Fu gui fu yun. At the age of 12, Bruce commenced attending La Salle College. Bruce was later beaten up by a street gang, which inspired him to take up martial arts training under the tutelage of "Sifu Yip Man" who schooled Bruce in wing chun kung fu for a period of approximately five years. This was the only formalized martial arts training ever undertaken by Lee. The talented & athletic Bruce also took up cha-cha dancing and, at the age of 18, won a major dance championship in Hong Kong.

However, his temper and quick fists got him in trouble with the Hong Kong police on numerous occasions. His parents suggested that he head off to the United States. Lee landed in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1959 and worked in a close relative's restaurant. He eventually made his way to Seattle, Washington, where he enrolled at university to study philosophy and found the time to practice his beloved kung fu techniques. In 1963, Lee met Linda Lee Cadwell (aka Linda Emery) (later his wife) and also opened his first kung fu school at 4750 University Way. During the early half of the 1960s, Lee became associated with many key martial arts figures in the USA, including kenpo karate expert Ed Parker and tae kwon do master Jhoon Rhee. He made guest appearances at notable martial arts events including the Long Beach Nationals. Through one of these tournaments Bruce met Hollywood hair-stylist Jay Sebring who introduced him to T.V. producer William Dozier. Based on the runaway success of Batman, Dozier was keen to bring the cartoon character of The Green Hornet to T.V. and was on the lookout for an East Asian actor to play the Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato. Around this time Bruce also opened a second kung fu school in Oakland, California and relocated to Oakland to be closer to Hollywood.

Bruce's screen test was successful, and The Green Hornet starring Van Williams aired in 1966 with mixed success. His fight scenes were sometimes obscured by unrevealing camera angles, but his dedication was such that he insisted his character behave like a perfect bodyguard, keeping his eyes on whoever might be a threat to his employer except when the script made this impossible. The show was surprisingly terminated after only one season (twenty-six episodes), but by this time Lee was receiving more fan mail than the show's nominal star. He then opened a third branch of his kung fu school in Los Angeles and began providing personalized martial arts training to celebrities including film stars Steve McQueen and James Coburn as well as screenwriter Stirling Silliphant. In addition he refined his prior knowledge of wing chun and incorporated aspects of other fighting styles such as traditional boxing and Okinawan karate. He also developed his own unique style "Jeet Kune Do" (Way of the Intercepting Fist). Another film opportunity then came his way as he landed the small role of a stand over man named "Winslow Wong" who intimidates private eye James Garner in Marlowe. Wong pays a visit to Garner and proceeds to demolish the investigator's office with his fists and feet, finishing off with a spectacular high kick that shatters the light fixture. With this further exposure of his talents, Bruce then scored several guest appearances as a martial arts instructor to blind private eye James Franciscus on the TV series Longstreet.

With his minor success in Hollywood and money in his pocket, Bruce returned for a visit to Hong Kong and was approached by film producer Raymond Chow who had recently started "Golden Harvest" productions. Chow was keen to utilize Lee's strong popularity amongst young Chinese fans, and offered him the lead role in The Big Boss, (aka "The Big Boss", aka Fists Of Fury"). In it, Lee plays a distant cousin coming to join relatives working at an ice house, where murder, corruption, and drug-running lead to his character's adventures and display of Kung-Fu expertise. The film was directed by Wei Lo, shot in Thailand on a very low budget and in terrible living conditions for cast and crew. However, when it opened in Hong Kong the film was an enormous hit. Chow knew he had struck box office gold with Lee and quickly assembled another script entitled The Chinese Connection (aka "Fist Of Fury", aka "The Chinese Connection"). The second film (with a slightly bigger budget) was again directed by Wei Lo and was set in Shanghai in the year 1900, with Lee returning to his school to find that his beloved master has been poisoned by the local Japanese karate school. Once again he uncovers the evil-doers and sets about seeking revenge on those responsible for murdering his teacher and intimidating his school. The film features several superb fight sequences and, at the film's conclusion, Lee refuses to surrender to the Japanese law and seemingly leaps to his death in a hail of police bullets.

Once more, Hong Kong streets were jammed with thousands of fervent Chinese movie fans who could not get enough of the fearless Bruce Lee, and his second film went on to break the box office records set by the first! Lee then set up his own production company, Concord Productions, and set about guiding his film career personally by writing, directing and acting in his next film, The Way of the Dragon (aka "Return of The Dragon"). A bigger budget meant better locations and opponents, with the new film set in Rome, Italy and additionally starring hapkido expert Ing-Sik Whang, karate legend Robert Wall and seven-time U.S. karate champion Chuck Norris. Bruce plays a seemingly simple country boy sent to assist at a cousin's restaurant in Rome and finds his cousins are being bullied by local thugs for protection.

By now, Lee's remarkable success in East Asia had come to the attention of Hollywood film executives and a script was hastily written pitching him as a secret agent penetrating an island fortress. Warner Bros. financed the film and also insisted on B-movie tough guy John Saxon starring alongside Lee to give the film wider appeal. The film culminates with another show-stopping fight sequence between Lee and the key villain, Han, in a maze of mirrors. Shooting was completed in and around Hong Kong in early 1973 and in the subsequent weeks Bruce was involved in completing overdubs and looping for the final cut. Various reports from friends and coworkers cite that he was not feeling well during this period and on July twentieth 1973 he lay down at the apartment of actress Betty Ting Pei after taking a head-ache tablet and was later unable to be revived. A doctor was called and Lee was taken to hospital by ambulance and pronounced dead that evening. The official finding was death due to a cerebral edema, caused by a reaction to the head-ache tablet.

Fans world-wide were shattered that their virile idol had passed at such a young age, and nearly thirty thousand fans filed past his coffin in Hong Kong. A second, much smaller ceremony was held in Seattle, Washington and Bruce was laid to rest at Lake View Cemetary in Seattle with pall bearers including Steve McQueen, James Coburn and Dan Inosanto. Enter the Dragon was later released in the mainland United States, and was a huge hit with audiences there, which then prompted National General films to actively distribute his three prior movies to U.S. theatres... each was a box office smash.

Fans throughout the world were still hungry for more Bruce Lee films and thus remaining footage (completed before his death) of Lee fighting several opponents including Dan Inosanto, Hugh O'Brian and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was crafted into another film titled Game of Death. The film used a look-alike and shadowy camera work to be substituted for the real Lee in numerous scenes. The film is a poor addition to the line-up and is only saved by the final twenty minutes and the footage of the real Bruce Lee battling his way up the tower. Amazingly this same shoddy process was used to create Game of Death II (A.K.A. "Game of Death II"), with a look-alike and more stunt doubles interwoven with a few brief minutes of footage of the real Bruce Lee.

Tragically his son Brandon Lee, an actor and martial artist like his father, was killed in a freak accident on the set of The Crow.

Bruce Lee was not only an amazing athlete and martial artist but he possessed genuine superstar charisma and through a handful of films he left behind an indelible impression on the tapestry of modern cinema.

Diane McBain

Signed on as a Warner Brothers starlet, bouncy, blonde-coiffed Diane McBain would develop a burgeoning career as lively 60s "bad girl" and "spoiled rich girl" types on film and TV. Born in Cleveland, Ohio on May 18, 1941, the family moved to California while still young and she started things off as a "sweet 16" model in print and commercial ads. Eventually TV got more than just a glimpse of this diverting beauty after a WB talent agent spotted her in a Los Angeles play and signed her on during her senior year at Glendale High School.

After busily apprenticing on various TV projects, Diane made her first big splash in 1960 (age 19) with a prominent role in Ice Palace co-starring Richard Burton, Carolyn Jones and Martha Hyer. Brimming with style and confidence, Diane was quickly ushered into other films as Warner's answer to Carroll Baker, winning parts in two consecutive soapers. The first was Parrish with (again) Donahue and screen legend Claudette Colbert; the other was the title role in Claudelle Inglish opposite up-and-comers Chad Everett and Robert Logan. Neither the tawdry scripts nor the box office receipts were anything to write home about unfortunately, and her leading lady career in films started to flounder with such fodder as The Caretakers with Joan Crawford, A Distant Trumpet, yet again with Donahue, and Spinout. The last was one of Elvis Presley' later vehicles that signified an inevitable fadeout was on the horizon. Significantly better was her dizzy good time girl and socialite "Daphne Dutton" on the hip Warner Bros. series Surfside 6 alongside Van Williams (later TV's "Green Hornet") and beef-cake film star Troy Donahue. The show ran for two seasons.

Diane proved popular with the teen set with her devilish débutantes and snobby sophisticates, even accompanying Bob Hope on one of his USO tours of South Vietnam in 1966/67. On the cult series Batman, she played "Pinky Pinkston" (with pink hair, pink outfits and a pink dog). By the late 1960s, however, her career began drifting into exploitation with terrible titles like I Sailed to Tahiti with an All Girl Crew, Maryjane and The Mini-Skirt Mob (miscast as a biker chick) representative of what she was being handed.

Diane instead laid low and focused on her child, Evan, more or less splitting from the Hollywood scene. A few plays (Amanda in "The Glass Menagerie") and lowbudget films came her way, and in the 80s she was seen a bit more on daytime soaps. The still young-looking and ever-elegant Diane was out and about in the 90s as well, playing good-looking grandmas on such shows as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. The victim of a rape attack in 1982, Diane chose to rise above her traumatic circumstances and help others as a rape counselor.

Gardner Fox

Probably one of the greatest comic book writers of all time, Gardner Fox was born 1911 in Brooklyn. He started out as a lawyer, and practiced law from around 1935-1937. Being a proficient writer, Gardner Fox found there was more money to be made in writing fiction than in practicing law (during the latter years of the Depression), and took a job with DC Comics.

By 1939, he was writing Batman stories, and came up with ideas like the Batarang (which became so popular in the TV series in the 1960s). Gardner Fox also created some of the most enduring characters in the Golden Age of comics, such as: Starman, Dr. Fate, the Flash, Johnny Thunder and his Bahdnisian Thunderbolt, the Sandman (possibly inspired by the Green Hornet), and Hawkman and Hawkgirl (possibly inspired by the winged bat-men of Flash Gordon serials) - however, as Carter Hall & Shiera, Hawkman & Hawkgirl were the first married superheroes in comics (a quarter of a century before Reed & Sue in the Fantastic Four). Not one to be tied down to any one company, Gardner Fox also wrote for Timely (the precursor of Marvel) and EC Comics. Superhero comics thrived during the 1940s, but by 1951 they were replaced by Westerns and science fiction and teen humor comics; Gardner Fox took it all in stride and wrote for these genres, he also wrote stories for pulps such as "Amazing Stories" and "Planet Stories."

In the 1960s, Gardner Fox wrote the interstellar exploits of Adam Strange and his beloved Alanna in "Mystery in Space" comics. In those great years of the Silver Age, Gardner Fox revived many of the superheroes of the 1940s, to new audiences (he used a science fiction device: the earlier heroes live in a parallel universe on Earth-2). He wrote several thousand comics in his career. After 1968, he concentrated mainly on writing science fiction novels, and wrote such classics as "Escape Across the Cosmos" and "Arsenal of Miracles," as well as writing mysteries and sword-and-sorcery adventures. He wrote over 100 novels. In his small amount of free time, one of his hobbies was hunting; Gardner Fox was an excellent marksman and sometimes wrote about hunting and rifles in his novels. In his retirement years, Fox wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Lynna Cooper. He died at age 75; he had 2 children and 4 grandchildren.

At Fox his area of responsiblity included casting such TV pilots as "Batman, " "The Monroes, " "Felony Squad, " "The Green Hornet, " "Custer" and "Judd for the Defense."

He hitchhiked the south eastern states in his teens, before hitch hiking across country to California at the age of 20. His father showed him some Japanese Jujutsu moves at an early age and Green Hornet's Kato (Bruce Lee) movies really inspired him, then in his teens got heavily into Taoism when the TV show Kung-Fu came out and that piqued his interest. Studying Kung-Fu and all other martial arts at the age of 14 was his love and still is to this day. He had the dream of being the kickboxing champion of the world when he had seen in 1975 on the wide world of sports network kickboxing greats Joe Lewis and Bill (Superfoot) Wallace fight.

But one day in 1992 on his Harley Davidson in San Diego, riding with his buddies with a few girlfriends in tow, one of them said they needed extras that had Harleys for a show called Renegade. He showed up and he happened to look like one of the actors and they asked him if he wanted to do stand-in double work and he did for a season, learning on the job, things they don't teach in school or classes he had often stated.

Richard Rivera

Richard Rivera was born in a small town of Hagerman, New Mexico. Raised as a highly athletic and traditionally artistic young man, little did he know that his true talent was in the post production of film. He began the journey into the film world in 2005, when he began attending The Art Institute of Phoenix for Animation.

A year into training in both 2D animation and 3D animation, Richard stumbled upon their Visual Effects program and was hooked. Switching majors, he flourished as a frequent team leader and noted artist among his peers. While still attending college, Richard began work for the Phoenix Emmy-awarded company, Spectrum Video and Film.

Essentially working as a production engineer, asset manager, graphic artist, photographer, editor, and visual effects artist, Richard again distinguished himself within the local film and television industry as a jack of all trades. After graduating with Best Portfolio of his class at AI, Richard decided that it was time for a change. It had been over 2 years since he began working for Spectrum, and sought out a new challenge in his career profile. For 2 years Richard worked as an independent artist, consulting for various independent films and working as a commercial film and video consultant and contractor. Among his clientele at that time, Richard worked with HiPods, Penasco Valley Telecommunications, Three Horizon Films, Square Pictures, Media House HD, and more.

In 2010 Richard moved to California to pursue his passion for film. While there, Richard acquired Mark Victor Hansen (best selling author and co-founder of Chicken Soup for the Soul) and his wife, Crystal Dwyer (noted author and hypnotherapist) as regular clients of his artistic services. Mark and Crystal generously connected Richard to Bill Gladstone, noted Hollywood producer. Eventually this lead Richard to meeting and connecting with Bill's son, Cyrus Gladstone. Cyrus had been working and rising in the ranks of the company Legend 3D, a quickly scaling stereoscopic 3D film conversion company located in San Diego. Eventually Cyrus suggested that Richard join the Legend 3D team as a prep-compositor, and Richard jumped right in!

Richard started in the Legend 3D training division as a compositor in training, and within a few months had advanced to a Stereographer, Rotoscoper, and Compositing Lead. Over that time, Richard had made notable contributions to films such as The Green Hornet, Smurfs, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and much more. When the opportunity arose for Richard to join the team in compositing Transformers 3: The Dark Side of the Moon, he was more than eager to begin. To his surprise, Richard had once again distinguished himself among his peers, and was asked to act as a Stereographer Rotoscoping/Paint Lead over a team of 50 artists for the Transformers 3 project. This lead to his first on-screen credit.

Due to the volatility of the film industry, Richard made the hard decision to exit from Legend 3D. Around this time Richard was expecting his first son, and worked as an independent artist in San Diego.

At the end of 2011, Richard moved back to Phoenix, Arizona, from San Diego, California, to pursue independent clients. Since coming back to the Grand Canyon State, Richard has worked with notables such as Advision Media, Chesworth Films, Winquest World Wide (the mental performance trainers of several Olympic athletes), and debuting author Rico Racosky.

At the moment Richard is relocating to New Mexico, to pursue new film opportunities.

David Tineo

David was introduced to the martial arts not by accident, but by pop culture in the early 70's. Influenced by the Chinese Kung Fu movies and also by Bruce Lee's "Green Hornet" hit TV series and "Enter the Dragon's" success as a cult film. This era promoted the powerful effect martial arts culture had on it's youth. Growing up in Queens, New York. David of Dominican descent was exposed to local Tae Kwon Do and boxing schools in the area. Only to later get involved with street culture and local sports in New York city recreational parks and programs. Some of these programs promoted martial arts like five animals/Gung Fu, Tai Chi and Wing Chun as a basis for a movement. The popularity of Nunchaku, thanks to Bruce Lee. Also, the Bo Staff and Chinese broad swords were weapons that interested David early on. With no formal training in weaponry, he began to experiment and use his Kata to imitate those movements he had observed. As a pretty good street fighter, the boroughs of New York were pretty rough back in the 70's and traveling with locals got old so the way out was through sports. David got through by local sports programs in Basketball and High School. He eventually got a scholarship to SU (Syracuse University). Shortly thereafter, he was exposed to more movement oriented arts. Most importantly, modern dance which gave him a better understanding and credibility as a street dancer. He was introduced to the art of Dunham technique, which gave him body awareness, a strong back, deadly machete training, along with the musicality of hand drums. This inspired him in the 80's to travel and receive a formal dance education and further his arts training in music, dance and acting. The road back to the martial arts was when a friend introduced him to the Chinese school of Eagle Claw Kung Fu in Manhattan. They had formal weapons training with broad swords, staff and other common weapons. It was exciting but short lived because the school closed shortly after joining. In the latter 80's David came to Los Angeles where the focus was making it in Hollywood and hopefully reconnecting with Martial Arts soon. In the late 80's, he was able to further his training in Tae Kwon Do with Jun Chong in LA and at the Krav Maga Institute in West LA. Busy raising a family in the 90's, he was working as a bodyguard and private driver to the stars. Then came his introduction to FMA (Filipino Martial Arts) which was discovered by accident and going to a Dan Inosanto seminar with Guro Dan and Ron Balicki among others. He loved the art of Escrima and thus began his training and further development as a fighter. With the popularity of MMA and BJJ, a lot of places to train in LA and the Valley were available. Still, the FMA was pretty sparse and selective. Then the opportunity came to meet Supreme Grand Master CACOY Canete who is a true legend and among the fiercest fighters ever to come out of the Philippines. It was a true connection and truly awe inspiring to meet this man. Also to share his passion and unique art of Doce Pares. The problem was he only visited from time to time and you could only get good periodic training. So David began to train with various Doce Pares teachers like Guro Anthony Kleeman and others at The House of Champions. Still on the quest for more FMA experience, David began to attend many seminars and fight clubs in the Southern and Northern California areas. His first experience in Edgar Sulite's Lameco style came also with Guro Felix Valencia where the focus was not only on fighting techniques, but sparring with knife and live stick (Baston) with full gear. Guro Felix focused on many interesting aspects of combat. During training, he also included movements of Dumog like BJJ. Edgar Sulite also had a senior student here in LA named Guro Roger Agbulos of Astig Lameco combatives. Famed for his footwork and sparring abilities, this is a fight club he'll always remember and train with throughout the years. Overall, David Tineo wants to thank the fighting styles developed in Hawaiian Kaju-Kenpo/Ryu dojo by Grand Master Bill Ryusaki. A legendary master in kenpo by developing a basis for empty hand striking, also bo staff and the flow of moving. Thanks for the guidance of Kapap and Krav Maga instructors Jacov Bresler and Moshe Galisko. Many many thanks to my friend and training partner Doctor KC Salkinder (Systema/Doce Pares/Sambo) who really helped me create and define my distinct martial art Tres Artes/3 Arts. Tres Artes (3 Arts) is a combination of three fighting disciplines with three different aspects. Empty hands, weapons, and take downs. Whatever it takes to acclimate to the street awareness and survival tactics. The goal is not to fight but to defend. Tres Artes/3 Arts will continue to grow as an art which is based on the basic principals of instinct and basic survival, as well as the principals and flow of movement. The science and functionality of weaponry, if necessary. Overall, to have the right to protect those that you love and care for and always respect humanity.
