WAS KUNG FU STAR BRUCE LEE CURSED?
Kung Fu star Bruce Lee was convinced he was cursed.
The star of cult classics such as, Enter the Dragon, and Fists of Fury always felt that he would not have a long life.
Lee was born in San Francisco in November 1940 but moved to Hong Kong, the home of his family, when he was a child.
As a teenager Lee got into fights like other teenagers.
Then he discovered Kung Fu, the martial art that propelled him to world fame.
Along with the physical skills he mastered he was also interested in the spiritual side of Kung Fu.
It was this that led him to fear invisible demons and he felt that one day they would confront him in a do or die battle.
He was always reluctant to father children in case the demons he felt he was cursed with would be passed onto his children.
The one he dreaded the most was called The Dragon.
Lee found fame first in Hong Kong and later in America.
But in May 1973 he spoke of sensing that the time had come when the demons were ready to battle with him and overcome him.
Shortly afterwards he collapsed on a film set, apparently with a convulsion.
Two months later he was dead at only 32 years of age.
The post mortem revealed a massive brain haemorrhage although rumours soon circulated about the real cause of his death.
To his son Brandon Lee he handed down his love of Kung Fu and the same terror of evil spirits.
Unwilling to provoke any of the demons that he believed claimed his father he refused to play the lead role in a film about him.
Brandon also became morbidly obsessed and took to driving a hearse.
In March 1993, he was set for stardom in a film called The Crow which told the tale of a murdered rock musician returning from the dead.
A stunt went mysteriously wrong when Brandon was shot by a gun that should have contained blanks.
He died at only 27, two weeks before he was due to marry a production worker Eliza Hutton.
Robert Lee, Brandons uncle said: I dont know if our family is cursed but I am seriously starting to think about it.
