The tragic death of international superstar Bruce Lee in 1973 was a big blow to martial arts cinema. Perversely, it was also a boon as well since various unscrupulous producers did everything they could to cash in on his fame. There ensued several years in which Lee look-alikes, often given names like "Bruce Li" and "Bruce Le," starred in cheap imitative action flicks that did their best to pass as vehicles for the real thing.
