Enter the Dragon was released 40 years ago—specifically, on July 26, 1973. To commemorate the anniversary of the debut of the most popular martial arts film of all time, we've posted this interview with one of the men behind the movie.
If the revered academy started giving out a Lifetime Achievement Award for Fight Films, Fred Weintraub would be the hands-down winner the first year. His filmography as a producer in the genre is unrivaled: Black Belt Jones (1974), Golden Needles (1974), The Ultimate Warrior (1978), Jaguar Lives! (1979), The Big Brawl (1980), Force: Five (1981), Gymkata (1985), The Best of the Martial Arts Films (1990), China O’Brien (1990), China O’Brien 2 (1991), The Curse of the Dragon (1993), Warrior Angels (2002) and Dream Warrior (2003), among others. For most martial artists, however, his crowning achievement is 1973’s Enter the Dragon. Fred Weintraub recently finished dusting off his fondest memories of the film, along with his interactions with its legendary star, and committed them to paper in the form of a book titled Bruce Lee, Woodstock and Me. Black Belt conducted this interview shortly before it came out.
