John Saxon - a great actor - May he rest in peace.

As well as pulling together some great fighters, Enter The Dragon also had a collection of some truly impressive physiques. Aside from John Saxon and Bruce Lee, Jim Kelly and Bolo Yeung had physiques many could only aspire to.

What better reason to watch the movie again this afternoon and remember John.

Thank you for sharing this news Peter.

Best wishes,
Tony
