    Bruce Lee Handwritten Letter Signed "Bruce" and "B. Lee" (On Address Panel) Written to Bob Baker at the End of Filming The Big Boss Discussing Plans for His Second Picture (Fist of Fury). Written by Lee to friend, confidante, and fellow Fist of Fury actor Robert "Bob" Baker, one-page (6" x 11"; 152 mm x 279 mm) printed blue Aerogramme self-folding, postal stationery, transmittal envelope, postmarked from Bangkok, Thailand, 23 Aug 1971, written in Lee's hand, Mr. Bob Baker / 28625 Rochelle Ave. / Hayward, Cal. 94544 / USA. Signed "B. Lee" on the return address Aerogramme flap. Expected folds and tears with minor stains and handling.

    Lee tells Baker of his closing in on wrapping The Big Boss in Thailand and how Paramount is asking Lee to shoot more episodes of Longstreet. His family will be joining Lee for his second movie in Hong Kong, and he's very optimistic that Bob will be coming as well, in part: "I'm pretty damn sure you will be coming - one way or the other. Imagine spending Christmas in Hong Kong. So damn the torpedo, full speed ahead." Lee is excited at the prospect of showing Bob what he's been doing and tells him the "G" in Bangkok is "holy indeed," and it's his understanding Hong Kong's pales by comparison.

    Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA. COA from Heritage Auctions.
