Brandon Lee is the son of famed martial artist Bruce Lee who grew to be a talented fighter and actor in his own right. He was tragically killed in an on-set accident at the age of 28 while filming The Crow in 1993; Lee was the film’s lead playing dark protagonist Eric Draven.

The Crow (directed by Alex Proyas) was completed and released in 1994 and was a hit with fans and critics. The film also served as something of a memorial for Lee. The fact that his character, Eric Draven, returns from the dead added eerie irony as if Lee himself was coming back to life for a final “Goodbye”. The film ends with Draven returning to the graveyard he rose from, finally able to rest in peace.
If it’s been a while, or if you’ve never experienced the excitement of 1994’s The Crow, check out the trailer and synopsis below.
The night before his wedding, musician Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) and his fiancée are brutally murdered by members of a violent inner-city gang. On the anniversary of their death, Eric rises from the grave and assumes the gothic mantle of the Crow, a supernatural avenger. Tracking down the thugs responsible for the crimes and mercilessly murdering them, Eric eventually confronts head gangster Top Dollar (Michael Wincott) to complete his macabre mission.
Fast forward to 2021…
Photographer Brian Dale Fall spent months staking out the grave of Brandon Lee, hoping for a “perfect shot”–and he got it. Check out the image below (shared on Facebook).
“I finally captured the pic I’ve been trying to take for months. Nailed It!”Brian Dale Fall
When some commenters accused Fall of using PhotoShop to creat the image, he shared video footage of the crow landing on Lee’s grave as the picture was shot. It’s also worth noting this if this image was PhotoShoped, Fall probably would have removed the peanut he used to lure the bird onto the headstone. In my opinion: It’s brilliant!
