Enter the Dragon outtakes and bloopers – RARE footage
1973’s ‘Enter the Dragon’ starring Bruce Lee is essentially the quintessential martial arts epic. There is even an argument to be made that Enter the Dragon, and specifically Bruce Lee, may have helped to launch the martial arts craze in the west.
In the following video, we see some very rare and seldom seen footage of some bloopers and outtakes from the classic martial arts flick.
Compared to many other big-time movie sets with egos bigger than their budgets, in Enter the Dragon, the cast and crew were clearly having a good time with it and loving every minute of it.
The legend himself, Bruce Lee, in particular, seemed to be having a blast on set and compare him and his attitude to the primadonna actors and actresses of today who are so quick to throw meltdowns over trivial matters.
That wasn’t Bruce’s style though and it really is too bad he passed away when he did as he still had so much more to accomplish, both in the martial arts world and in film.
So check out the video below to see some behind the scenes footage and outtakes from this classic martial arts film, including one blooper involving an extra that actually still made it into the film.
