Officials have given their backing to the setting up of a Bruce Lee memorial gallery in Kowloon, and two mainland cities are also considering moves to pay tribute to the Hong Kong-born kung fu legend. Local fans said yesterday that representatives from the two unnamed mainland cities are to discuss possible tributes with Lee's last living apprentice, Ted Wong, 62, who will fly in from the US next Thursday, the 27th anniversary of Lee's death. In September last year, the Provisional Urban Council endorsed a plan for a Bruce Lee museum despite a row over his colourful personal life. But the plan fell through after the council was disbanded at the start of this year. Lee fans have also presented a proposal to Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa to have a 4,000 square feet memorial gallery, housed within a proposed film museum, in West Kowloon. The draft, prepared by the Bruce Lee Union, was submitted to the Leisure and Cultural Services and Territory Development departments, which support the idea. Lee died aged 32 on July 20, 1973, while filming Game of Death in Hong Kong.
