Bruce Lee Auditions for The Green Hornet

Here’s where the legend of Bruce Lee all began (at least for American audiences). Back in 1964, Lee, only 24 years old, was invited to audition for The Green Hornet. And he nailed it, landing a starring role on the short-lived ABC television series. During these eight vintage minutes, Lee gives you, the viewer, the theory and practice of kung fu. It’s all rather enjoyable to watch, unless you’re the slow-reflexed man sharing the stage with him. The real action begins at the 4:05 minute mark.
