Interviewer: Bruce, as a screen toughguy, you are going to have to suffer what all film heroes have to, that is, challenges from exhibitionists and nuts, to fight them. It's already begun to happen, hasn't it?

Bruce Lee: Yes, it has.

Interviewer: How do you deal with it?

Bruce Lee: When I first learnt martial arts, I too challenged many established instructors and some others challenged me also. And what I have learned is that challenging means one thing - what is your reaction to it? How does it get to you?

As to the old style swordsman movie, Bruce Lee thought that he was not refrained from making it, but he had to be very careful in making it. It was because many swordsman movies were simple and stereotyped. If he were to make one, he must have a good script. Bruce Lee thought that he was not supposed to work with one company and not with other companies. If other companies invited him to make movie, he would consider. However, money was another problem. But there must be a good script. Of course, he would care about the problem of coworkers.

Bruce Lees Values

Bruce Lee came back to Hong Kong to make the first movie. The box record of "The Big Boss" was beyond expectation. It not only strengthened Bruce's interest in movies, but also his confidence in directorship and in establishing his own company.

Under this circumstance, he worked with Raymond Chow. They organized a film company. It was called Concorde Production Company.

In choosing Raymond Chow to be his partner, Bruce said, "He is smart, knows about administration and production of film, but in boxing, I am better than him."

According to Bruce's idea, he would take up the work of screen-play, actor and martial arts director; and Raymond Chow wou be in charge of production and administration.
