This is a not so rare colorized photo of Bruce Lee coaching Sylvia Lai (aka Sum Sum, ex-wife of Robert Lee).

According to Sylvia and some HK fans, Bruce did a short demo with Sylvia on HK-TVB’s Enjoy Yourself Tonight Show (circa 1970). This is probably a preparation for the show. In Bruce’s letter to Linda on April 3rd, 1970, Bruce just brought Brandon to the HK amusement park in the daytime. As can see from the photo, Bruce and Sylvia’s clothing were the same as the ones taken in the amusement park. So, this is definitely taken on April 3rd, 1970. Bruce would later appear in HK-TVB’s EYT show on April 7th followed by RTV’s Golden Hour show on April 10th.

Hi Ivan, do you have any impression on this HK-TVB show segment where Bruce and Sylvia performed JKD demo?

Yes, she did appear in a short demo with Lee in either the show hosted by Tam Peng Man or Michael Hui. Sylvia was also known as Miss 3 cents for her commercial in EYT.

Exactly is this photo taken in Robert Lee's Apartment rooms. Sylvia was at that time a well-known TV actrees in HK.

There are many more of similar shots taken there. Lee returned to HK and stayed in his family's house in Apr 1970.

Sorry, Ivan. I've overlooked your reply.

Thanks very much for your kind reply. It's cool to learn that Sylvia had performed a short demo with Bruce.

Yes, agreed, either it was in Apr 7th, 1970 with host Michael Hui or Sep 3rd, 1971 with Tam Peng-Man. I would think it's the 70's appearance because I got the appearance article on the 71, it didn't mentioned about this part. Also, the photo of Sylvia and Bruce practising JKD was on April 3rd, 1970, just 4 days before his TVB appearance. They were likely rehearsing for the show.
