Saxony, an Italian American, has appeared in more than 200 films and TV series and is famous for his Westerns and horror films. In 1973, he appeared in the film fight the dragon as Roper. In the film, he and Bruce Lee boarded the island to participate in the martial arts competition, and had a wonderful duel with the martial arts star Yang Si.
It is understood that Sakson had studied martial arts, including judo and karate, before taking on the role of fight between the dragon and the tiger. However, compared with Bruce Lee, Yang Si, Shi Jian and other experts in fight for the dragon, Saksons martial arts level is only superficial. But he saw it as a rare opportunity in his acting career, because he could finally combine martial arts with movies.
If we just took a fight scene, we might have to do it 10 times in full, sachsson once recalled. I really underestimate the effort to play this role well. We even worked for 10 hours for a single shot to find the best elements. Although Sakson lacks enough experience in martial arts, he and Bruce Lee have a good time working together. Bruce Lee even respected his opinions. In an action design, Sakson made suggestions on Bruce Lees movements, and Bruce Lee followed his advice.
