Filmed almost entirely on location in Hong Kong, “Enter the Dragon” was the first “kung fu” film produced by a major Hollywood studio, Warner Bros. With a score by six-time Oscar-nominated composer Lalo Schifrin, “Enter the Dragon” brought the martial arts film into the American mainstream.
I'm definitely going to check this out. For more information about the screening, visit the Academy website. For more details on the exhibition Kick Ass!: Posters from the Stephen Chin Collection, go here.
