Bruce Lee Jumpsuit Fetches US$100k at Hong Kong Auction

The yellow jumpsuit worn onscreen by martial arts legend Bruce Lee in the movie “Game of Death” has sold at a Hong Kong auction for US$100,000. The yellow suit with black stripes down the sides went to an unidentified telephone bidder at Spink auction house’s Thursday night sale. It was part of a collection of 14 items of Bruce Lee memorabilia that raised more than US $258,000. Lee died in 1973 at the age of 32 before he could complete the film, which was released posthumously in 1978. —AP
