Enough with the mystery already, here’s the BIG reveal! The subject of my book project is the late actor/martial artist Jim Kelly. For those not familiar with Jim Kelly, he was one of the most prominent African American action stars of the 1970’s. His most well-known film is the 1973 action classic Enter the Dragon, in which he starred alongside genre icon Bruce Lee. Although Enter the Dragon was not his film debut, most aficionados regard it as such. That’s because Enter the Dragon established his action chops with authority, so much so he came close to stealing the show from Bruce Lee (no easy feat). From the moment Kelly appears onscreen, he exudes an undeniable presence and charisma. He balances being a likeable hero, and an individual not to be taken lightly.
