    no. i have not found any during my research and fascination of him. i'm not saying they don't exist, but i doubt there are any because of his familie's handling of his funeral and burial. The Dearly Departed tour takes you past the home where he was memorialized, by the way

    Hello big Brandon Lee fan here too, I doubt there is one out there, since Linda Lee mostly has tight control of what gets released and what doesn't. Though going to both his and his father's grave are so surreal. I do remember one time going, and I kid you not a crow landed on top of his head stone. It was our surreal, whoa this is creepy moment.

    Hello everybody.....

    I live in Everett, north of Seattle, and there's the most beautiful cemetery in Seattle I had to drive past to go to my doctor's in Seattle. Come to find out later, it's where Bruce and Brandon Lee are. So I looked it up on Find-a-Grave and went to visit their graves. They're right next to the path, so very convenient to get to. They are turned around so you can't see them from the path, which makes them a little more private I guess. When I went there the first time, there were lots of notes, coins, and little things along with flowers below the stones. Took my husband one time to see it too because he's a huge BL fan. He thinks my "Death-haginess" is a bit weird, but loves me anyway. :-)

    I worked with a guy named Brandon Lee and just a reminder everytime I saw him or saw his name on my phone when calling. My family are huge Brandon Lee fans and watch his movie repeatedly. I feel for Linda and share my condolences. I would love to get to Seattle to his and his fathers grave site. Maybe some day.
    Looking forward to walking the streets of gold.

    I was thinking about Brandon Lee the other day at work. I have a question about his girlfriend Eliza Hutton; Does anyone know what happened to her??
    If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

    Brandon and Bruce have the most amazingly beautiful headstones I've ever seen. If you can even call that a headstone. It's a work of art!

    As for Eliza, the only thing I'm able to find on her is that she has not kept in contact with Brandon's family since his death...Poor thing.
    <3 Rest Well, pvezz. <3

    Nothing happened to her, she simply moved on with her life in the only way she could given the circumstances.

    Eliza Hutton has married and moved on with her life as Brandon would have wanted.

    It sounds like Linda would probadly have the photo blocked,Bruce's death was so public and even today in Hong Kong he still had the biggest funeral in Hong Kong's history.I guess she may have wanted Brandon to have more peace.Bless her heart.

    Brandon Lee Docu Vid

    Here's a docu vid I created as a tribute to Brandon Lee; thought you might enjoy watching it. I call it a docu vid because it's not just a slideshow, but also contains a brief story of his life and unnecesary death. The song is Stairway to Heaven by Led Zepplin.

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=YP1oKz-37JA

    Enjoy!

    Thanks to both of you. We have over 4,000 signatures on the petition, need some 1,000 more--Scott endeared me by putting the petition link on his Brandon Lee profile; thanks, Scott. It's the money that we are way short of. It's $25,000 and we have about $500. Do the math. LOL.

    That was very well done. I had forgotten what a stunner BL was! He's right up there (for me) with Johnny Depp in the "no one has the right to look THAT good" department.

    The beauty of Brandon Lee goes deeper than his physical looks. I've done hours and hours of research on him and, unlike some Hollywood hunks, he was truly a decent guy without a smear on his good name. To wit: he was a real person, not some fake, and that makes his death all the more tragic.

    Brandon Lee



    DRAVEN_SHOT-180x240.jpg
    February 1, 1965 - March 31, 1993
    RIP


    "My dad said time was the most valuable thing a person had...that really struck me. I've made a conscious effort not to waste it." --Brandon Lee, People, September 7, 1992 [


    Six months later Brandon was dead in Wilmington, North Carolina.


    EARLY YEARS

    Gwokho Brandon Bruce Lee was born in Oakland, California, to legendary martial artist and actor Bruce Lee and Linda Emery Lee on Monday, February 1, 1965--the last day of the Chinese Year of the Dragon. He was born with a thick thatch of jet hair which fell out and returned blond; according to his mom, Linda, in her book Bruce Lee: the Man Only I Knew, Bruce declared his son the only blonde, gray-eyed Chinaman in the world. As he grew older, he hair turned jet again. He was all boy, into everything--once actually fracturing his skull--always challenging authority, made worse when Bruce died of a brain edema on July 20, 1973. He once backed his car the wrong way down a one way street, and another time he...um...liberated a car.

    He has been called a rebel with a cause, for he grew up struggling in the shadow of his famous dad. He did not want to be known as Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee. He wanted to be Brandon Lee, the actor--or as someone once put it: he wanted to be Mel Gibson. To wit: an actor with a repertoire of mainstream films, not just martial arts movies. He once said that his dad was a martial artist first and then an actor, but he was the opposite. He always wanted to be an actor, and his mom has said he was quite the ham during his childhood years.


    MIDDLE YEARS

    His sister, Shannon Lee Kessler, was just four when her dad died--even though Linda twice married after Bruce's death--Brandon became her father figure, and he wasn't disposed at reading her the riot act, when needed.

    He was one of those bright students who for whatever reason do not thrive in the formal classroom. For one thing, he defied authority, right and left, sometimes really pushing the envelope. When John Lennon was shot to death in 1980, student union president Brandon Lee dismissed his grade from classes in honor of the fallen Beatle, and was expelled. He attended many schools, including the Chadwick School in Palos Verdes, California, where he was expelled for insubordination, never to return. He received his GED at nearby Miraleste, and went on to attend Emerson Collage in Boston. After a year, he transferred to the Lee Strasberg Academy and joined the famed Eric Morris American Theatre Group.


    LATER YEARS

    Linda has said that Brandonís first role was as a child kicking his way across the set of one of his dadís movies, but his first professional role was in 1986, playing the son of Caine in Kung Fu: the Movie, which he did not want to be in, because he felt like the martial arts scenes would drive him deeper into his dadís shadow. But producers persuaded him to do it, saying this movie would be a foot in the show biz door.

    He did not want to portray the son of Pat Mortiaís character in OíHara (1986), either, but again he gave in to producerís wishes.

    As his dad did before him, unhappy with the roles he was being offered in the USA, in 1986, he went to Hong Kong and made Legacy of Rage, which was most def an exploitation of his dadís martial arts movies.

    In 1990, came Laser Mission. Up to this point Brandon was still coming to terms with that comma behind his name. He was an angry, troubled young man and very difficult to work with. But in 1990, he met the love of his life, Eliza Hutton. At first sight, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her; she didn't think much of him, finding him arragant and intimidating. The second time they met, Brandon turned on the charm, and she fell in love with him. Her love calmed him, made him more easy going, and for the first time he began to come to terms with his dadís legacy.

    Showdown in Little Tokyo was released in 1991, Rapid Fire in 1992--also that year, on bended knee, in Venice, Italy, Brandon asked Eliza to become his wife. She said yes.

    Also in 1992, it is said Brandon began to lobby for the part of Eric Draven in The Crow, and won the part.

    On Monday, February 1, 1993--Brandonís 28th and last birthday--filming began on The Crow. From day one, there were many accidents on the set, and according to Brandon (and an extra that I talked to) working conditions were subhuman; so much so that Brandon sent a formal complaint to producer Ed Pressman, who ignored it.

    Shortly after midnight, Wednesday, March 31, 1993, a domino of human error culminated in the death of Brandon Lee by gunshot from a .44 Magnum Smith and Wesson revolver.


    INVESTIGATION

    How did The Crowís safety net so tragically fail?

    The biggest reason, IMHO, is that it was, in Wilmington, NC, movie crews need not be unionized. and The Crow wasn't. Plus, filming was eight days behind and over budget. All those accidents had eaten up most, if not all, the contingency money, and the bond boys, who are in charge of seeing that a movie stays on budget, were breathing down their backs. Corners were cut. Examples:

    1. when they ran out of dummy and blank bullets and couldnít find a shop in Wilmington that had them in stock, instead of ordering a supply from LA, crew members made their own. Out of a carís trunk in the studio parking lot.

    2. On the day Brandon was killed, the weaponís expert was sent home; because the kill scene was the last shoot Ďem up and they didnít think they needed an expert onset. Prop master JB Jones took over as the weaponís expert, and he has said himself that he knew absolutely nothing about firearms. Duh.

    3. The .44 Magnum revolver was NOT cleaned before it was brought on the set. In fact, only a very few people know the history of that gun before it landed on set, and they aren't talking. Scuttlebutt: some crew members used that gun for target practice, while others played with it. And no one thought to clean it.

    Many rumors are floating around out there about Brandonís death. Early on there were reports of a sniper in the rafters, that the blank's wadding killed him, a live bullet--which it was not. The biggest one is that he was murdered. This is absolutely not true. Impossible, because that kill scene was not planned. When the cast and crew gathered at 8pm on March 30, director Alex Proyas had not decided how Eric and Shelly would die, and in fact rehearsed several different ways before he decided to go with death by gunshot. In order for it to have been murder, a killer would have had to have knowledge about how the kill would come down, but, as I said, that scene was not planned.

    This is what happened. Before the kill scene was shot, crew members prepped the .44 Magnum revolver. They cracked the chamber and shot a closeup of the six bullet ends, then aimed the camera down the barrel and shot filmed as each bullet's tip flicked by. Suddenly there was a POP! That was the sound of a lead tip somehow shearing off and lodging in the force cone. But no one paid attention. The director handed the gun to Mr. Massee, who fired it at Brandon, and Brandon hit the floor, for all intents and purposes, dead right there on the set.


    AFTERMATH

    At first, when Brandon did not get up, everyone thought he was pulling one of his famous pranks, but roughly 30 minutes later they realized something was most def wrong. And they were right. Stunt coordinator and Brandonís best friend, Jeff Imada, went over too him and spoke to him, but Brandon did not respond, just sat there in a corner, his gray eyes staring blankly into space. They laid him flat and pulled up his tee and saw a scratch on the right lower quadrant of his abdomen. (Contrary to rumor, there was no pool of blood.) However, his belly began to swell as he bled out inside.

    He was rushed to Hanover Regional Medical Center, and died there at 1:04pm, some 12 and one-half hours after being shot.

    Brandon Bruce Lee, actor, martial artist, outdoorsman, the Prince of Fun, son, brother, fiancť--who was supposed to marry the love of his life on April 17, 1993--was laid to rest beside his dad at Lake View Cemetery in Seattle, Washington. The next day there was a memorial for him at actress Polly Berginís home in Beverly Hills. Those attending included family members and close friends, plus The Crow cast and crew members, David Caradine, Kiefer Southerland, Lou Diamond Phillips, David Hasselhof, (Contrary to what he would have you believe, Steven Seagal was not only NOT a friend of Brandon, but the Lee family had never even met him. He did not actually attend the memorial, but stood outside and talked to reporters http://youtube.com/watch?v=A5b97PnljvY) and Brandonís close friend Melissa Etherage, who sang.

    I've heard a lot of people talk about seeing crows in graveyards. They seem to hang out in them. Creepy.

    Cindy, do you know why they let him be there for 30 mins like that? Were they still filming or something? That struck me as odd. Even if they thought he was joking, thats a long joke.
    Also, I wonder if the time lapse between the shooting and help arriving would have made any difference in his survival chances....

    Since Brandon was known for pulling pranks, they did at first think he was joking (as a matter of fact when Jeff Imada called Eliza to tell her to get out there ASAP because Brandon had been hurt, she too thought it was one of Brandon's jokes).

    Let me tell you something, Brandon Lee was dead the minute prop master acting as weapons expert JB Jones handed Massee that gun, trust me.

    The following is what happened:

    Mr. Massee waved the gun around, aimed, fired, and Brandon whirled around and slumped down, sitting in a corner near the door. The director yelled "Cut!" but Brandon did not get up. They thought he was pulling a prank, so they just let him be and went on with preps for the next shoot. Still, there was clue that something was wrong, because Brandon did not perform the scene as was rehearsed, but everyone thought he had changed his reaction to being shot, and it was just damn good acting. After a time--and no one is saying how much time went by because they were all busy--when Brandon still didn't get up, Jeff Imada walked over and said "Brandon, are you all right?" Brandon didn't respond, but just sat there, his gray eyes staring blankly into space. A medic walked over and he and Jeff laid Brandon down on the floor. Jeff thought at the time that Brandon had hit his head on the wall and knocked himself out. Jeff noticed a tear in Brandon's tee shirt; they pulled the shirt up and saw a scratch on the lower right quandrant of his abs, near the naval. They still didn't know what happened, of course, never even thought that he had been shot. There was very little blood. So Jeff thought that when Brandon triggered the quib in the grocery sack it somehow injured him. Brandon's belly began to swell with internal bleeding, the medic began working with him, and someone finally called 911. At least thirty minutes went by from the time he was shot until EMS had him loaded and rushing to the hospital. I have heard it was an hour.

    Doesn't really matter how long it took to get him to the hospital, because for all intents and purposes Brandon Lee was dead when that lead tip tore through his body. It ripped through the stem of the aorta where it branches out to feed blood to the legs, lodging in the spine. His aorta exploded like a water-filled balloon, flooding his insides, devatating his cardiovascular system and the surrounding organs, liver, kidneys, etc. were just devastated because of the blood loss. Doctor did all he could, but Brandon never had a chance.

    I too thought that Bruce and Brandon's graves are unique, beautiful works of art. Definitely among the most beautiful I've ever seen, if not THE most.

    Also from on the film set there would have to be the actual film footage of him being shot and his death, before the director yelled "Cut"! Was it destroyed or does it exist?


    That would be amazing to see!

    Part of that very scene WAS included in the movie.

    No, actually, when the cast and crew went back to finish the movie, that scene was reshot.

    Ok, I'm bamboozled and need your help. Let me qualify by saying I do believe in the paranormal; I've seen ghosts, shadow men, etc. But I don't buy the following.

    There's a new member on my Brandon and Bruce Lee forum who claims to have a personal relationship (not sexual--but who knows?) with Brandon Lee's ghost. I kid you not. She claims that when she stands before her mirrow she sees his reflection standing next to hers. She says he often hugs her. She says that she broke her foot the other day and was crying and he appeared to her and said "Don't cry, A."

    Now, I told her that I thought she was lucid dreaming and she said not. So she must be disillusional or eating magic mushrooms or dropping some awesome acid. She talks about it in almost every post she has, and it isn't funny at all (I do giggle at the chick on the internet who says Brandon's ghost hangs out at her local Winn Dixie store, though).

    It's creeping me and another admin out, and we are trying to think of some nice way to be rude to her so she'll put a stop to it. Any ideas?

    BTW she is 29 years old.

    Cindy,

    Wow!! You have a live one on your hands.

    I would do one of two things, or maybe have to do both.

    A private message telling her that although you appreciate her honestly, you are having trouble with others understanding what she is going through. Suggest that her "visit" is a private one that The "ghost" might not want her making public. Tell her Brandon would probably not like it.

    Suggest that she take her story to a web site that is set up to discuss ghosts, suggesting Ghost Hunters, etc.

    Or.... Pretend she is not saying all these things, and hope that her meds will kick in, or she changes the subject.

    Good Luck and let us know what happens.

    Thanks, Katie, I'll do both. I think my biggest problem with this is that I was afraid I was over reacting, good to know I wasn't. I will keep you informed.

    Whoa, that's weird. I can't say I don't believe things like that don't happen but geez that's a strange thing to incessantly speak of.
