|Brian Trenchard-Smith's 1975 film 'The Man from Hong Kong' featured Grant Page as an assassin|
Completed for a total of $13,000 in 1973 self-financed by Brian Trenchard-Smith, this feature documentary takes leading Australian stuntman Grant Page to Hong Kong to find Bruce Lee's successor.
Made just after the death of Lee and featuring an exciting hilltop kung-fu fight, the film examines with humour the cultural phenomenon that Asian martial arts had become in the West.
Along the way, Page chats with Western actors dabbling in kung fu for the first time including the Australian James Bond, George Lazenby.
