Just noticed in a few photos you can see that Bruce had a couple of missing teeth. These are photos I'd often seen before, mostly in Hong Kong Bruce Lee Club magazines from the 1980s. But I'd never really examined them closely before.

Photos from this video:



2:40, 2:52 missing upper left molar
6:19 lower right molar

In Jesse Glover's book, he mentioned that Bruce used to like chewing gum, and would often get cavities because he hated the dentist.

Well spotted! Guess he wasn’t wearing dentures or false teeth on those particular days?

Je l'avais remarquer il y a longtemps. Et il a meme une dent de devant qui se chevauche. Mais bon cela n'enlève rien à son charme...

Didnt Lee want to become a dentist......ironic then

Speaking of teeth , when one of the thugs gets kicked in the back alley I couldve sworn a tooth flew out of his mouth lol

Bruce probably didn't have health insurance prior to joining SAG.

I am guessing he lost these teeth in Seattle or Oakland when he didn't have much money.

It would be interesting to read his day timers to see if dental appointments are mentioned.
