Directed and written by Bruce Lee, «The Way of the Dragon» (also known as "Meng long guo jiang", "Return of the Dragon", "Fury of the Dragon") is an Action/Comedy/Crime/Drama/Thriller film, released in the USA on August 07 of 1974 . Bruce Lee is starring, alongside Nora Miao, Chuck Norris, Ping-Ao Wei, Chung-Hsin Huang and Robert Wall.

Storyline:
Tang Lung (Lee) is sent from Hong Kong to Rome to help his friend's niece Chen Ching Hua, and family friends, whose restaurant is being targeted by the local Mafia, which has been trying to force them to sign a contract handing over ownership of the restaurant to the Mafia boss. After their offers to purchase the restaurant are repeatedly turned down, the gangsters resort to intimidation. Tang fends off the local gangsters and wins Chen's admiration, who had initially looked down on him for his naïveté. Tang had earlier been reluctant in putting all his savings into a bank and had even unknowingly gone home with a prostitute while touring Rome with Chen; he had further frustrated her by not being able to understand the Italian and English languages. After the thugs are defeated the first time, Tang becomes friends with the other workers and teaches them Chinese boxing; they, in turn, combine them with their skills in Karate to help Tang fight off the gangsters.
