Enter the Dragon is my kind of multiculturalism, as I’ve said many times.
Sadly, Bruce Lee’s memorable co-star, Jim Kelly, has just passed. If his line readings left a bit to be desired, Kelly certainly made up for it:
Six foot two with an explosive Afro, Kelly made an indelible impression in 1973’s Enter The Dragon by holding his own against the film’s massively charismatic star Bruce Lee. Kelly’s character, Williams, was somewhat of a symbol of the Black Power movement in America at the time and Kelly’s look, defiant demeanor and no bullshit attitude fit the role perfectly.
