SAN DIEGO — Actor Jim Kelly, who played a glib American martial artist in ‘‘Enter the Dragon’’ with Bruce Lee, has died. He was 67.
Marilyn Dishman, Mr. Kelly’s ex-wife, said he died Saturday of cancer at his home in San Diego.
Sporting an Afro hairstyle and sideburns, Mr. Kelly made a splash with his one-liners and fight scenes in the 1973 martial arts classic. His later films included ‘‘Three the Hard Way,’’ “Black Belt Jones’’ and ‘‘Black Samurai.’’ Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
