I can’t find that particular forum topic in the link. Incidentally, I had no idea that people were participating in forums way back in 93! They really haven’t evolved that much in 25 years!

Ah, that's nothing....I once found a 1982 newsgroup on Google Groups (formerly known as Usenet).

Here is a little bit of the `93 transcript...

Marty - April 8: "My personal feeling is that some form of organized crime was involved in both instances of Bruce and Brandon's deaths.  Everyone knows the problems the movie industry has had with triad involvement over there.  Both Lees made movies there and had ample time to p!ss people off by not wanting to cooperate. Especially Bruce.  One has to wonder if Brandon's death was not a result of past dealings with them too."

Troy Shinseki - the next day: "How is the police investigation going? Has there been any announcements? I am very curious what they will turn up. I have a very difficult time believing that having an actual round of ammo in a movie shoot could be an accident. Was Brandon involved with any shady dealings? Was the shooting only meant as a warning? Who would the likely perpetrators be? Inquiring minds want to know!"

Let's not forget Chow's background as a government spy back in Taiwan. He may have bugged Bruce's office to benefit himself and Lo. No matter how private that Bruce wanted the filming of GOD to be, Lo still stole the original title for himself (Yellow Faced Tiger) by copyrighting it a year before he used it in 1974 (the Don Wong movie with Chuck Norris). I always found it strange that he didn't use it for what became A Man Called Tiger.

The following 1993 forum topic was the first time that I had read about the possibility of Brandon being silenced:

I wish that justice had been done like in Perry Mason: The Case of the Shooting Star (1986). Interestingly, the author of The Crow (James O'Barr) said this about Brandon's emotional preparation for the adaptation: "He said he was going to relate the loss of Shelly to the loss of his father."

Hai_Tien that link for the Brandon article doesn't work.

Strange! It works for me. It must be because I posted it from "Desktop Web Browser" as this forum displays.

Anyway, if you go to Google, search for Google groups, type "Brandon investigates Bruce Lee's death" and look for "Brandon Lee (Washington Post article 4/2/93)" then it should be there.

I'm confused, what do those pics of Brandon Lee have to with the Game of Death or Bruce Lee's affairs?
