    Linda Lee Handwritten Letter Signed "Linda" Written to Bob and Bev Baker Regarding Bruce Lee's Directorial Debut in The Way of the Dragon and Their New House in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Written by Linda Lee to family friend, Bruce Lee confidante, and fellow Fist of Fury actor Robert "Bob" Baker and his wife Beverly on three-pages (6" x 8"; 162 mm x 203 mm) plain blue stationery. Accompanied by original (8.25" x 4"; 210 mm x 102 mm) transmittal envelope, from Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2 June 1972, written in Linda Lee's hand, Mr. + Mrs. Robert A. Baker / 28625 Rochelle Ave. / Hayward, Calif. 94544 / USA. Expected folds with minor stains and handling.

    Linda Lee writes to Bob Baker and his wife on 2 June 1972 and includes a check "because you have always been a good, true friend and because you really helped us out when we needed it." She relays news following Bruce Lee's return from the location shoot in Rome for The Way of the Dragon, Bruce's directorial debut. Linda Lee writes in part: "Bruce is very very busy right now, so I'm writing for him because he wants to keep in touch and he's concerned about how you're doing. We have seen the film they shot in Rome, and as you can guess Bruce is doing great in his first directing job. Chuck Norris + Bob Wall are appearing in this picture."

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