Do you have any footage of Bruce or know of footage that the public has not seen?

It is rumored that there are of hours of behind the scenes footage of ETD. Do you know about that?

Did Bruce ever give you a gift of any kind, or write you a letter? If so, do you still have it/them?

>Do you have any footage of Bruce or know of footage that the public has not seen?<

No. I'm sure if any existed, it would have surfaced long before now.

>It is rumored that there are of hours of behind the scenes footage of ETD. Do you know about that?<

Sorry, I don't have any knowledge of that. I'm sure, as is the case with all films, considerable footage wound up on the editing room floor.

>Did Bruce ever give you a gift of any kind, or write you a letter? If so, do you still have it/them?<

I presume you're asking about memorabilia. While I don't have anything by way of a gift or a letter from Bruce, I do have boxes of memorabilia that resulted from my years of research on Bruce.

All the best

Did Brandon ever talk with you about his fathers death?

You have said that Brandon wanted to reopen his fathers case. To me, that sounds as if Brandon suspected foul play. What are your thoughts on that?

Some say that Raymond Chow is sitting on a ton of BL footage. Your thoughts?

Why didn't Chow want to speak with you when you were in HK researching UM?

What happened to the coffin on the flight back from HK? That coffin was discarded and another was used in Seattle, right?

Thank you for your time.

>Did Brandon ever talk with you about his fathers death?<

No. Brandon kept his thoughts about his father, his memories, and their relationship to himself.

>You have said that Brandon wanted to reopen his father's case. To me, that sounds as if Brandon suspected foul play. What are your thoughts on that?<

To be honest, none really, except that, like his father, Brandon was very inquisitive. As an aside, Brandon surely would have known that Bruce's case can never be officially reopened. And even if there were indisputable proof of foul play, no one would be arrested and tried.

>Some say that Raymond Chow is sitting on a ton of BL footage. Your thoughts?<

I seriously doubt that. Raymond Chow is and always has been an astute businessman. Had there been footage that was marketable, he would have done that long before now.

>Why didn't Chow want to speak with you when you were in HK researching UM?<

I can't speak for Raymond Chow, but my sense is that he probably felt he had nothing to gain and everything to lose. I had not met him previously, and he knew I had been married to Linda and, as a result, presumed I knew more than most. I can see where he wouldn't want to talk to an investigative journalist.

>What happened to the coffin on the flight back from HK? That coffin was discarded and another was used in Seattle, right?<

As is mentioned in the book, Bruce's coffin opened during flight, which the Chinese interpreted as their being "unsettled matters," hence the title of my book. I personally didn't place any importance in Lee's coffin opening. It was stored in a pressurized section of the aircraft and could have opened due to a sudden change in air pressure. As to what happened to the original coffin, I don't know.

Sorry I can't be much help on these particular questions.
