The actor's student file from time he spent at Bruce Lee's Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute in 1967 went under the hammer at Nate D. Sanders Auctions on Thursday night (17Nov16).

Lee instructed the Bullitt star and signed his notes, which were filed away at the fight school.

The four-page file booklet features MCQueen’s personal information - his address, phone number, date of birth, marital status, and occupation - written by Lee.

The two film legends became close friends while training together and MCQueen thanked Lee for his instruction by lavishing him with expensive gifts, including a Porsche and a down payment on a house.

And Lee once heaped praise on his friend's work ethic, telling his biographer M. Uyehara, "That guy doesn’t know the meaning of quitting. He just kept pushing himself for hours - punching and kicking without a break - until he was completely exhausted. His gym clothes were completely soaked by the time we gave up."

MCQueen was a pallbearer at Lee’s 1973 funeral.

Bruce Lee's National Karate Championship Plaque also went under the hammer at the auction. It sold for $12,500 (£10,100).
