Hong Kong movie legend Shih Kien, who spent decades playing the enemy in dozens of martial arts films including the Bruce Lee classic 'Enter the Dragon,' has died at age 96. Shih died Wednesday afternoon at a Hong Kong hospital with his children by his side, the Ming Pao Daily News reported Friday. The cause was kidney failure, the Apple Daily newspaper said.


"With his death, Hong Kong has lost an outstanding performing arts talent," Acting Hong Kong Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Gregory So said in a statement.


Shih made his film debut in 1940 and went on to act in about 350 films, most notably playing villains in films about Chinese folk hero Wong Fei-hong, according to Ming Pao.


He was best known to Western audiences for playing the evil martial arts expert Han in "Enter the Dragon." In the movie, Lee's character is hired by a foreign government to infiltrate Han's island and seeks to avenge his sister's death by Han's bodyguard.

Combining auto-erotic asphyxiation with bear claw masturbation. Neat.

No one ever said that he wasn't a talented fellow.

People were making David Carradine jokes at training today. The best was regarding the suspiciousness of a 70 year old man going on holidays in Thailand.

"Here, little girl, try to take this boiled sweet from my hand."

He was actually working, a film called Strech, I believe.

I find it interesting enough that he still had the energy to put that much effort into rubbing one out. Dude was all man to the very end.

Dude, once you hit middle age, it's effort just to keep it beyond the horizontal.

Or so I'm told.

I'd just like it officially noted how much self restraint I showed in not making a joke about this.

Oh, I know. You have no idea what was going through my head. I started to edit my post, twice.

LOL. I guess Thrill Bill might not see a theatrical release.
