  1. Yes this is a nice surprise. Those episodes came out on VHS years ago. I have one where they spliced two together and released it as a new Kung Fu movie. But the two episodes are not part of the same story.

    I bet this will sell well. Lee is more popular now than ever. He has lots of films and TV shows that have been viewed thousands of times on You Tube and his interview on Johnny Carson has been viewed over a million times. Still not sure why it's not complete. Lee talked about several things that are missing including the director of High Noon having lines for him to say. Lee said something like "when Ian MacDonald gets off the train I'm suppose to talk and I went to the director and said, you know I've gone this far without having anything to say in the script and if I open my mouth now it's going to ruin the uniqueness of my character. He said okay so the only racket I make in the film other than playing the harmonica his gunfire. I think I made the right decision."

    And maybe this wasn't part of Lee's segment so it's not cut but when Johnny introduced the next guest, it was a young actress in a sparkly blue dress who tripped and fell walking up to greet Johnny and Lee was up to help her quickly.

    And the main reason Lee was on Johnny Carson? To promote The Master.
