Lee's sudden death stirred a lot of controversy at the time, and there was even speculation that he might have been murdered. His film "Enter the Dragon" was released in the United States one month after his death. It went on to gross over $200 million.
Lee's son Brandon also died tragically after he was accidentally shot during the filming of the movie "The Crow" in 1993. A prop gun accidentally expelled a primer that struck the actor in the abdomen.
