bruce lee's 70th birthday celebration

Last week in Hong Kong, Bruce Lee's wife and daughter unveiled a special exhibition of the legendary martial arts movie star's personal items, photos and movie posters: Bruce Lee's wife, daughter open Hong Kong exhibit.

The exhibit, which includes a boxing head guard and a pair of sunglasses used by Lee, is part of a tribute to the late actor at the 34th Hong Kong International Film Festival. The festival also hosted a seminar on his work, and screened nine of his movies in honor of what would have been his 70th birthday later this year.
