Brad Pitt’s persona, a stuntman and primitive battle hero named Cliff Sales put, laughs in Lee’s face over the commentary and his behavior, then the two obtain into a “agreeable” contest of who can knock the tons of down three cases with out hitting the face.
Mates and household of the valid Lee (who died in 1973 on the age of 32) said the particular person they knew didn’t act treasure that and, what’s more, in no draw would accept as true with misplaced a fight to Brad Pitt.
Tarantino, doing press for the film in Russia, disagreed, announcing Lee modified into once essentially “form of an arrogant man.”
“The manner he modified into once speaking, I didn’t simply obtain tons of that up,” Tarantino said within the video below. “I heard him thunder issues treasure that, to that create. If other folk are announcing, ‘Smartly he in no draw said he could furthermore beat up Muhammad Ali,’ successfully yeah, he did. No longer most piquant did he thunder that, nonetheless his spouse, Linda Lee, said that in her first biography I ever learn … She totally said it.”
Tarantino furthermore defended the fight between Moh’s Lee and Pitt’s Sales put, which is stopped earlier than both wins essentially the most piquant of three.
“Would possibly presumably per chance furthermore Cliff beat up Bruce Lee? Brad wouldn’t present the option to beat up Bruce Lee, nonetheless Cliff perchance could furthermore,” the Oscar winner said. “While you happen to demand me the demand, ‘Who would preserve in a fight: Bruce Lee or Dracula?’ It’s the same demand. Or now not it’s miles a fictional persona. If I thunder Cliff can beat Bruce Lee up, he’s a fictional persona so he could furthermore beat Bruce Lee up.”
Tarantino then equipped a deeper peek into Pitt’s persona, who is referred to within the film as a “battle hero” nonetheless nothing more is acknowledged.
“The reality of the scheme back is that this: Cliff is a Green Beret,” Tarantino said. “He has killed many males in WWII in hand-to-hand fight. What Bruce Lee is speaking about within the total component is that he admires warriors. He admires fight, and boxing is a closer approximation of fight as a sport. Cliff is now not fragment of the game that is treasure fight, he’s a warrior. He’s a fight particular person.”
Continued Tarantino, “If Cliff were combating Bruce Lee in a martial arts tournament in Madison Sq. Backyard, Bruce would abolish him. But if Cliff and Bruce were combating within the jungles of the Philippines in a hand-to-hand fight fight, Cliff would abolish him.”
