The first entry to a large survey should be a classic. Read this as a suggestion. If you haven’t watched “Way of the Dragon” yet, do so.
Bruce Lee’s skin fits tightly to his muscular system. Squired by a streak of humor he impresses with unfussy effectiveness. Anybody reciting their popular Chuck Norris dictums will be illumed by Bruce Lee’s superiority in a stunning faceoff at the Roman Colosseum.

During the first 25-30 minutes Bruce’s character looking for a toilet is a tiny running gag. I won’t spoil the incident, but I found two details in “Way of the Dragon” astoundingly enough to mention.
First factoid I spotted when Bruce finally enters the restroom. Whilst he had been travelling to help the owner of a chinese restaurant in Rome, which to my knowledge is in Italy, the ersatz signs read very english.

The exceptional tidbit however is the position Bruce Lee is acceding to on the loo. Even in this intimate moment the master overwhelms with his peculiar technique.
