Bruce Lee filmography

He’d also made appearances in several TV series but is best remembered for playing Kato, the sidekick of the titular superhero, in ABC’s Green Hornet (1966–1967).
While many documentaries and videogames have paid tribute to the Chinese icon, there are far fewer that have ventured to present his lfie on film or television. Bruce Lee died in Hong Kong on July 20, 1973, aged 32.
