    Bruce Lee Handwritten Letter Signed "Bruce" Written to Bob Baker As He Prepares For Filming The Big Boss and Arranges a Secret, Week-Long Visit. Written by Lee to friend, confidante, and fellow Fist of Fury actor Robert "Bob" Baker, two-pages (8.25" x 11"; 210 mm x 279 mm), separate leaves of plain paper. Accompanied by original (9" x 4"; 229 mm x 102 mm) transmittal envelope, postmarked from Los Angeles, CA., 22 June 1971, written in Lee's hand, Mr. Bob Baker / 28625 Rochelle Ave. / Hayward, Cal. 94544. Expected folds with minor stains and handling.

    In this letter, Lee updates Bob on his intense preparation for filming and offers encouragement to Baker stating, "you are familiar with old habits, but why not open the flow in sensing and responding, rather than being the clarity and simplicity of rigidity?" Lee then asks Bob to set up a secret get together to include Lee's lady friend "Teresa."

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