    Description

    Game of Death (Columbia, 1978). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Bruce Lee died while "Game of Death" was still filming, so the producers scrambled to finish it any way possible. They used outtakes, shots from other Lee films and substituted a stand-in with dark glasses. Since his character fakes his death, they even used shots of Lee's real funeral as part of the film. The end result is something of a mishmash of segments, both good and bad -- fights with Chuck Norris and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar being the highlights. This one sheet has two extra horizontal folds, fold wear with wrinkling, edge tears and an edge chip. The poster features Bob Gleason artwork of Lee (in the jumpsuit that inspired Tarantino for "Kill Bill"). Fine+.
