    Linda Lee Handwritten Letter Signed "Bruce + Linda" Written to Bob and Bev Baker Regarding Bruce's Completion of "Jing Mo Moon" (Fist of Fury) and His Meteoric Rise as a Filmmaker. Written by Linda Lee to friend, confidante, and fellow Fist of Fury actor Robert "Bob" Baker and his wife Beverly, one-page, front and back, (6.5" x 11.25"; 165 mm x 286 mm) printed blue Par Avion Aerogramme self-folding, postal stationery, transmittal envelope, postmarked from Kowloon, Hong Kong 19 Dec 1971, written in Linda Lee's hand, Mr. + Mrs. Bob Baker / 28625 Rochelle Ave. / Hayward, Calif. 94544 / USA. Expected folds and tears with minor stains and handling.

    Bruce Lee's wife, Linda, writes to Baker and family on 17 December 1971 informing them Bruce is "busily preparing the third script which he is writing, directing and starring in". She informs them that both she and Bruce had seen a rough cut of Fist of Fury and Bruce was very satisfied with Bob's convincing performance as the "mad Russian" and believes the film's success to be a sure thing. Linda continues by giving a surprisingly in-depth account of the impact of Lee's film career, performance and how he is changing the expectations of Hong Kong audiences. She shares that Bruce is extremely excited about his upcoming picture, training faithfully every day for it. "It's his creation and his baby. He has all the power to do what he wants his way which is a rare opportunity for any man."
