Officials in Chinatown unveiled a 7-foot bronze statue of Bruce Lee to a crowd of several hundred in the historical Central Plaza on Saturday night. The unveiling caps a five-year effort to bring the statue to Chinatown, said Shannon Lee, Bruce's daughter and president of the Bruce Lee Foundation. The statue, created by an artist in Guangzhou, China, is the first such statue of her father in the United States, Shannon Lee said. Though the statue will not be permanently installed until business leaders can raise $150,000 to install seating and a concrete plinth, the timing was right for the unveiling, Shannon Lee said.

Forty years ago, the cinematic landscape was undergoing a seismic shift. Young Turk filmmakers such as George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, William Friedkin and Terrence Malick were exploring unique and challenging themes. The black exploitation film was not only thriving but also enjoying crossover appeal. But probably no one in Hollywood was prepared for the martial arts mania that erupted the summer of 1973 when Warner Bros. released the kung fu epic "Enter the Dragon," starring the legendary Bruce Lee, who died at 32 shortly before the U.S opening.

Bruce Lee's daughter said Friday she's happy that China has embraced her father with a 50-part, prime-time TV series on his life -- even though the late action star was no fan of communism. The series currently airing on state broadcaster China Central Television, which portrays the late action star as a nationalist hero, is China's first movie or TV drama on the late actor. When Lee made his name in the early 1970s playing characters who defended the Chinese against oppressors, China was still a closed country.

Prosecutors filed murder charges Thursday against a police officer who allegedly shot to death a mentally disabled motorist after chasing him down on the highway for failing to pay for a tank of gasoline.

"Water can flow, and it can crash. Be like water, my friend." That was one of Bruce Lee's principles of combat, and it's the inspiration behind "The Nature of Water," an exhibit that opens Saturday at Nucleus ([626] 458-7477), the sleek gallery in downtown Alhambra. Four dozen artists channel the singular legacy of Lee, who died nearly 35 years ago at age 32. Daughter Shannon Lee will be at the opening, which includes a Bruce Lee look-alike contest. Sounds cheesy -- though I might change my mind if the winner can do push-ups on his thumbs the way Shannon's dad used to. . . . Building on a Lee theme, Tuesday is the start of "Under the Influence: A Tribute to Stan Lee," an exhibit of 100 artists dedicated to "The Man Who Made Marvel."

Quiani Lee was 8 when her Uncle B.J. was killed when he fell off the roof of his home. The two had been very close. She saw him almost every day, and called him her uncle even though he wasn't a blood relative. They went to movies together and hung out at family barbecues. Yet Quiani didn't react when she found out B.J. was dead. She didn't cry and she wouldn't talk about it. "For some reason, it didn't click to her that she wasn't going to see him again," says Shannon Lee, Quiani's mom.
