Episode 105: For Y'ur Height Only (1981)

It's all about the Weng Weng when it comes to this classic Filipinosploitation flick about a miniature secret agent.

We're joined by Andrew Leavold, associate producer of Machete Maidens Unleashed! and the man behind the documentary The Search for Weng Weng!

  1. Excellent Podcast! Reminded me of the St. Jack podcast, where the guest told a story of his fascination with a particular film, and his search for the story behind the making of St. Jack. This time around, it was a head-spinning film starring a 2'9" tall leading man as a secret agent/martial artist/ladies man - Weng Weng! As with Saint Jack, the guest then went on a personal journey of discovery trying to get to the 'real story' behind the diminutive Weng Weng.
    Mr. Leavold's interview really drew me into the podcast - I was anticipating a big reveal as to what happened to the late Weng Weng, why his film career fizzled, but the podcast ended without it. I realized that Mr. Leavold was saving that for the planned documentary, so I logged in and made a $20.00 donation - to get the whole story! Thanks for linking to "The Impossible Kid" on Youtube. I downloaded it to my PC using Realplayer, burned it to a DVD-R, will watch it 2nite.

    1. Frank,

      Glad you dug the show and learned something new! Amazing stuff that Weng Weng! Very cool about supporting the documentary. I'm looking forward to seeing that as well!
