The letters to Robert Baker show he supplied Lee with drugs including cocaine, LSD and cannabis from 1969 until the star died aged 32 in 1973. They were discovered at a flea market and will be auctioned in the US for around £160,000.

While it was whispered in Hollywood that Lee had a drugs habit, the letters not only confirm it but reveal his dependence on them.

Baker, who died aged 52 in 1993, even went to great risks to ship drugs from the US to Lee while he was away filming in Hong Kong. In 1972, Chinese-American Lee asked his Fist of Fury co-star to send him “a large amount of cocaine”.

He explained he was “stoned as hell” but some coke could help him get into character for an upcoming movie role.
