Memorable Bruce Lee: Collectors' Corner Series II
"A Collection of Insights, Memories and Pride"
Collection of Mr Jeff Chinn of San Francisco, US
18 July 2015 - 14 January 2019
"Excuse me if I seem to talk endlessly about Bruce Lee. He has impacted my life so much that I sometimes get carried away when I'm showing my Bruce Lee collection. Over the past 43 years, I have accumulated almost 10,000 Bruce Lee related items. My collection constantly gives me insights on life, contains my precious memories with my family (especially my father) and makes me proud of my Chinese heritage.
Perhaps you can't come to San Francisco to visit my Bruce Room and hear the many stories behind my collectibles. Fortunately, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum has selected some 230 sets of items from my collection to be showcased in the "Memorable Bruce Lee: Collectors' Corner Series II" section of the "Kung Fu ‧ Art ‧ Life" exhibition. Items include the first edition of Chinese Gung Fu: The Philosophical Art of Self-Defense autographed by Bruce Lee himself, US film trailers for The Big Boss and Fist of Fury among other titles, as well as original behind-the-scene photos taken on the set of Enter the Dragon produced by Warner Bros. Studios of the US. This exhibition gives me a chance to share my Bruce Lee collection in this beautiful city called Hong Kong, where this legend grew up and rose to stardom."
