Enter the Dragon is a 1973 Hong Kong-American martial arts film directed by Robert Clouse, starring Bruce Lee, John Saxon and Jim Kelly. The film was produced by Fred Weitraub and Paul Heller, at the companies Warner Brothers Inc., Concord Productions, and Sequoia Pictures. This was Bruce Lee's final film appearance (footage was shot and used in what became Game of Death) before his death on 20 July 1973 at age 32. The film was first released on 26 July 1973 in Hong Kong, six days after Lee's death. Lee was also one of the film's writers, along with Michael Allin
Often considered one of the greatest martial arts films of all time, in 2004, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The film was often thought of as the one that sparked the "Kung Fu Kraze" both in the United States as well as beyond.
