Chuck Norris Reveals Secret Behind His Fight With Bruce Lee In Rare Footage

The on-screen presence of Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris remains unparalleled to this day. Both of them have been endlessly mythologised as the toughest movie stars in history, but Norris’ rise to fame began only after his unforgettable collaboration with Lee on the 1972 action-comedy gem The Way of the Dragon.

Lee starred as Tang Lung, a young martial arts expert sent to help out a woman and her uncle after local criminals target them. Chuck Norris is fantastic in his debut screen role as Colt, a skilled martial artist recruited by the criminal organisation to eliminate the enormous threat posed by Tang Lung.

It was the highest grossing film in Hong Kong’s history until it was surpassed by another Bruce Lee work a year later. Recently, rare footage has surfaced on the internet which features Chuck Norris’ comments on the success of the film. “That movie cost $145,000 to produce,” the actor reflects. “It’s grossed over $60 million [over $700 million when adjusted for inflation] worldwide. It’s amazing, huh?”

After watching the film’s iconic fight between Lee and Norris, many believed that they had a real rivalry. In fact, the two had sparred on multiple occasions, and Norris was always in awe of Lee’s speed and power. In one interview, the Hong Kong star even claimed that beating figures such as Joe Lewis, Mike Stone and Chuck Norris was like fighting children.

During the interview featured in the footage, Norris only had good things to say about their collaboration. He commented: “I enjoyed working with Bruce Lee in the film. It was a lot of fun, the fight scene is considered the classic martial arts fight scene of all time. So it’s nice to be involved in a fight scene that everyone [loves].”

The marvellous fight scene of The Way of the Dragon is truly something else, especially when you consider that the scene was filmed illegally because the team did not have the proper permits. Lee had to bribe some of the officials, which allowed the crew to film on location for about an hour before they were required to wrap things out.

“There’s a scene where I throw Bruce to the ground and he grabs the hair on my chest and he pulls it out,” Norris recalled. “I get a letter from this man and he says he and his son had seen [The Way of the Dragon] 26 times… He says, ‘Did Bruce really pull the hair out of your chest? If he did, you’re really a stud.’”

Originally meant to be distributed in Asian markets, The Way of the Dragon became a cultural phenomenon. The reason for the movie’s popularity definitely boils down to the Colosseum fight scene, which was filmed in long takes, letting the audience bask in the poetry of that inimitable fight sequence.

The Ultimate List of the Best Action Movie Hero Names

Arnold Schwarzenegger (aka “Arnie”, “The Austrian Oak”, or “The Govenator”) is an ultimate action movie legend of the first class. Both a former Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia champion bodybuilder and former Governor of California, Arnold has risen to the highest levels of worldly success.

Born in Thal, Styria, Austria, Arnold made his breakthrough into Hollywood action movies originally in sword-and-sorcery with Conan the Barbarian and in sci-fi with The Terminator, early roles which let him hide his thick accent and lack of American acting experience.

However, Arnold quickly found his niche and would go on to helm some of the most critically and commercially successful action movie blockbusters of all time. Including Terminator 2: Judgement Day and the Terminator Series, Commando, Predator, Total Recall and True Lies to name a few. While he has eased up in later years to pursue public office, his legacy remains Arnold strong!
