对于许多人而言,他就是武术的代表。李小龙让许多观众眩目,并且带进新的东方文化自觉到西方。在他最终死后42年,一项李小龙纪念拍卖会,将在此他被抚养长大的都市举行。

Hong Kong—the city where Bruce Lee spent his most formative years. Many still consider him to be its greatest export.
香港,是造就李小龙的都市,许多人仍然认为他最伟大的是将功夫出口至西方。

This Saturday, an auction here will be held of 13 items belonging to the legendary kung fu master.
本周日,此间将举行一项拍卖会,有13件是属于传奇功夫大师的物品。

[Anna Lee, Auction Spokesperson]:
“Bruce Lee definitely is popular. The media always quote him as one of the favorite sons of Hong Kong. His following is so big that I think the legend will continue, definitely.”
拍卖会发言人李安娜小姐说:“李小龙一定是受欢迎的。媒体一直称他是最受喜爱的香港之子之一。他的跟随者如此的巨大,因此我认为这项传奇将会持续,一定的。”

Items to be sold include signed student membership cards to Lee’s kung fu schools, a martial-arts book inscribed by the actor, and a fur-lined coat made for the film, “Game of Death.” Lee wore it just before his death in 1973.
要拍卖的项目还包括李小龙功夫学校亲手签名的学员卡,一本由这位演员所题赠的功夫书,还有一套为电影《死亡游戏》订作的毛边大衣,就在1973年李小龙死亡之前他所穿的。

[Anna Lee, Auction Spokesperson]:
“Actually, I think the most important, the best item, I feel, is the three-page letter, hand-written letter by Bruce Lee and it talked about his early days in Hollywood and how he taught megastars how to do Kung Fu and all that. And it’s a letter written to his confidante in Seattle, his student, and his long-time friend. So I think it’s quite good that he talked about his life in Hollywood."
拍卖会发言人李安娜小姐说:“实际上,最重要的,最棒的项目,我觉得是3页的信件,是李小龙的亲笔信,谈到他在好莱坞的日子,以及他如何教导超级巨星怎么练功夫等等。这是一封李小龙写给他在西雅图也是他学生的知已女友,并且也是他的长期朋友。他谈到在好莱坞的生活,所以我认为很棒。”

The letter is estimated to sell for around 40-thousand U.S. dollars.
这封信预估会卖到4万美金。
