    22 - Ho Chung-Tao (a.k.a., Bruce Li)

    Of all the Bruce Lee imitators of the '70s, Ho Chung-Tao was the best...not because he looked or moved like BL (he didn't really), but because he was a good all-around performer who could not only screen fight, but could act. He didn't like the 'Bruce Li' gimmick, though, and to his credit, he was able to make some movies without the BL imitation stigma. The interview was conducted at the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall/Park in Taipei, Taiwan.

    23 - Yasuaki Kurata

    (On meeting Bruce Lee)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDTU1rg0pas

    Yasuaki Kurata was the most prolific Japanese actor to appear in Chinese films; an excellent actor who was also one of the best screen fighters of all. He's still active in the business and can still move with the best of them.

    25 - Lo Lieh

    The late Lo Lieh was one of the most prolific actors in HK cinema, usually cast as villains, but played heroic characters as well. His roles have been too numerous, but some of his most famous films include: King Boxer (Five Fingers of Death), 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Executioner of Shaolin, and Clan of the White Lotus (Fist of the White Lotus). In both Executioner and Clan, Lo's portrayal of the Priest Pai Mei (Bak Mei) inspired Quentin Tarantino to include the character in Kill Bill 2.
