Having watched the Bruce Lee story, it is interesting that Bruce Lee had a hard time getting work afterwards.  He was turned down for the part in Kung Fu, for being "too Chinese".  The next and last television show I saw him in was the James Franciscus  show "Longstreet", where Bruce played a Martial Arts teacher, what else, teaching the blind lawyer defensive tactics. 
Another interesting note is that Van William was so taken by the idea of fighting crime, that he became a policeman.

It was the first show that I saw on our brand new 1966 21" Penncrest color televison(made by R.C.A.)on Sept.9,1966.It was the first episode of the show.
It was played straight,it wasn't like that goofy batman show.It a shame that it only lasted one season.
I watch it now on YouTube,and still enjoy it as much as ever.I still have my old View Master reels of the show along with the small book that came with it.

Never got to see this show when it aired. It came on Friday nights when I was at Boy Scouts. Wished they had VCRs back then!
