The transcript below is from the video “BEST STORY EVER: Jackie Chan Picks A Fight With Bruce Lee… And Loses” by Strombo.

Strombo (The Official YouTube Channel for George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight on CBC):

George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight gets Jackie Chan’s Best Story Ever: for a young martial arts performer, getting to act opposite Bruce Lee was a huge honour – and Jackie Chan got the chance on the set of ‘Enter the Dragon’. But things didn’t exactly go according to plan.

Strombo (The Official YouTube Channel for George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight on CBC):

When Bruce accidentally hit Jackie in the head, he felt awful. Which allowed Jackie to spend a little quality time with his idol.

Jackie’s in Toronto to introduce screenings of three of his classic films, ‘Drunken Master’, ‘Police Story’, and ‘The Legend of Drunken Master’. All three are screening at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Jackie Chan:

“The best story for me I think, when I was young doing, Enter the Dragon, fighting with Bruce Lee and I was behind the camera. Waiting, waiting. Then I just see Bruce Lee…then I just ran after that then, pop! Suddenly, my eyes pop black because he hit just one stick right on my head. He missed it. But I did nothing. I just fell you know, little dizzy but it’s okay. I look at Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee doesn’t do anything. You look at everybody and keep acting.”

Jackie Chan:

“I turned around back until the director said, ‘Cut!’. Then he just saw the two sticks and turned around. Oh my God! He ran to me and lifted me up. ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry.’ And actually, I’m not in pain anymore. Because you know, I’m a young guy, very tough. But it certainly…I don’t know why I just pretended it was very painful. ‘Oh, oh!’ I just want Bruce Lee to hold me as long as he can. I said, ‘Oh!’, during the whole day.”

Jackie Chan:

“Every time he looked at me like this, and I’d say, ‘Okay’, and I think that’s the best moment then. Somehow, he’ll run to me. ‘What’s your name?’ ‘My name Jackie.’ ‘What style are you learning?’ I said, ‘Southern-style.’ Okay, then talk to me, Jackie. Huh. Jackie, Jackie. Okay, my name is Jackie Chan. My best story forever.”
