Wednesday marks 43 years since Bruce Lee died from an allergic reaction to a painkiller on July 20, 1973, at age 32. Lee is considered the greatest icon of martial arts cinema, and is known for his roles in "Enter the Dragon" and "Fist of Fury," among others, as well as for playing the sidekick Kato in the short-lived '60s TV series "The Green Hornet." Raised in Hong Kong, Lee came to America at age 18 and made a career teaching martial arts before he became an actor.
