It is terribly unfortunate the circumstances surrounding that fateful day/night for Lee. Even immediately after death, he was just left... alone.
He called him when he was working in Manila and told him about the headaches he'd been having. They continued through the 20th until he collapsed at Betty's place. Alkaloid chemicals in the cannabis were causing it. Dr. Wu told him the next time it would worsen because he was under a lot of pressure. The last time Bruce saw him was in June and had no complaints. Bruce should have went to Dr. Langford. He had his business card with him the 20th when they went through his clothes. Unfortunately...

The first one was a Buddhist service and 30,000 people were present. The largest funeral Hong Kong ever had. Bruce was covered with white silk up to the chin. It was gray and distorted, despite the heavy makeup. They had his head and upper body resting lower down. His chin was close to his chest and you could see the swelling in his face. The top of the coffin was covered with glass, so no one could touch him. Later, the silk-lined folding door to the coffin was opened all the way, as seen in some photos. The Seattle funeral was private and they had him in the second coffin and wearing a new wig. He was laying opposite and they had his upper body resting higher up than in the first coffin and mourners could see his blue kimono, with his broken glasses in the suit. James Coburn said in 1993: "It looked like someone put a mask over his face."

Yeah Coburn said just a masked bruce...

Why didn't he just go to the doctor, if the damned headaches were that bad?! And Betty...WTF?! Dude goes into convulsions and collapses, and you don't call for an ambulance?! This is HK's current biggest star, you stupid...!

Man, Linda was a special woman to not have gone postal on that ass!
But then again, maybe she was growing tired of all the b.s. too...

Has that pic been confirmed that it is indeed the last one taken of him alive? He honestly doesn't look any thinner than he did in his fight with Sammo.

Alot of the stuff you've written I have not read anywhere and didn't even know about

Its very very interesting indeed

Thanks
I really do not see how a person can be called ill (physically) when he was given a complete check up in usa and given a thumbs-up. He might be mentally 'ill' or disturbed at that point in his life, I can agree but not physically.
So an allergic reaction coupled with the stress he was in did him in or of course poisoning. He was not physically deteriorating. Many actors and business people (etc) have said that at many points in their life they had to work extra EXTRA hard and lost weight. Bruce did it almost all his life and more near the end of it.

Exactly he looks in good shape. Maybe overworked and tired but still good shape. He is tight etc.
Also how can he be seriously ill if he was given a clean bill of health after comprehensive test in USA. his rapid decline or instant death could only be attributed to an unlikely but possible event like an allergic reaction (coupled with an already reduced immune system due to stress) or murder (like poisoning).
He might be mentally not fully stable in those days, that is also likely. but how unstable can he be - he was so creative with Game of Death and enter the dragon ....
Actually he reminds me of Michelangelo (the divine artist) as far as personality and creativity.

It would be interesting to know which ones were the final photos taken of Bruce when he was still alive after his last HKTV appearance on July 10th. Could be family or studio pics. Comments?

So no way for that bullshit from R. Chow that Bruce was ill at his last days. R.Chow poisoned Bruce because he created his own company was going to make films by his own (and was gonna get money for that films of course). Chow and mafia thought that after murdered Bruce they put any guy in his yellow tracksuite and continue making money...but it wasn't the case...Bruce Lee is just one and no one could be as good as he. Period.

I do believe the heat was turned up on Lee...
I also believe Chow and Lo Wei were at the center of the situation.

I wondered about the odd death famous Bruce Lee...why the heck, he looks so healthy and energetic in ETD and sudden died after only some months as finished the film. Read a lot about his last days, flashbacks of his friends, his wife, doctors and other people. And the only conclusion I got that Bruce Lee was murdered (more likely poisoned ) by people who wanted to control him in order to make money. But the problem Bruce Lee was really a hero not only at his films, but in life too...and go alone against very bad but powerful people of moviermaking business in Hong-Kong those time.

In the picture, take a look at his arms.. There's nothing there.

Yes, he looked strikingly different here in this photo than he did in The Big Boss/Fists of Fury. It would be interesting to know what diet and methods he was using to get down to such low weight.
