Jim Kelly, yaw! Jim Kelly!

Aintitcool News has a pretty good piece on Jim Kelly!

Want to hear a story you might not know about ENTER THE DRAGON... Originally, the Jim Kelly WILLIAMS character was supposed to survive the film, it was John Saxon's ROPER that was supposed to die. However, Jim Kelly was on his second film that time out, and John Saxon's career was quite a bit more substantial. Saxon's agent did a "If you want John Saxon in this movie, then that Jim Kelly guy... you're gonna have to kill him instead!" So, there ya go. Now, dream of how badass the Jim Kelly vs Bolo Yeung fight would have been. Imagine, Jim Kelly looking up at Bruce at the end and giving the thumbs up... In a parallel dimension... it happened!
