I think you're focusing too much on the movies. And Lee did make entertaining movies, but I'm more interested in his actual research into fighting and cross training.

Up until UFC went mainstream and MMA became one of the fastest growing sports in the world, the only martial books you could find where the author examined Boxing, Grappling and Muay Thai and broke down the pros and cons of each individual style and when and how to utilize the respective skills were written by Bruce Lee.
