Bruce Lee returned to Hong Kong to further his career in the 1970s, seeking to produce films with high artistic and production values and showcase his martial arts philosophy to an international audience. For this reason, in addition to acting for the camera, he also worked as a screenwriter, director and martial arts choreographer. As can be seen from his manuscripts, Lee would write his own scripts, arrange the mise en scene, draft dialogues and choreograph the martial arts sequences, in his bid to make his production immaculate in every detail.
