Big Dong is also based on an old Chinese movie poster I found. Min-Hsu Wang, who stars as “Little Chong,” was able to find it for me – a 1977 comedy called “Winner Takes All!” Part 1 of these lobby cards is here, and Part 2 is here.

She wolfed down a can of Purina’s finest in between yelps; I was certain she would not have lasted another […]
