Bruce Lee Statue Watch

New, 25 comments

A 7.6-foot-tall statue of Bruce Lee was unveiled in Chinatown's Central Plaza over the weekend (although it's still not quite permanent yet; locals need to find more money for the installation and maintenance). "Lee, a major influence on Hollywood's portrayal of Asian Americans, moved to Los Angeles in the 1960s. While playing Kato in an early television adaptation of the 'Green Hornet,' he opened his third martial arts academy in a studio at 628 West College St. in north Chinatown."
