Mr. Giant has kidnapped the brilliant scientist Dr Van Kohler and is planning
to use the Doctor's invention, the N-bomb, to hold the world hostage.
Seemingly, the only one who can foil Mr. Giant's evil scheme is Agent
00, a 3-foot-tall Filipino martial arts master, expert marksman, top-class
romancer and all-around superspy.
The shortest actor
to play a leading role in a movie, Weng Weng (born Ernesto de la Cruz)
became a Filipino sensation after the release of this film. He was the
youngest of five brothers; the only one born with primordial dwarfism.
After a minor role in the comedy film Quick Brown Fox (1980),
Weng Weng began working on his Filipino Western WILD
WILD WENG WENG. His martial arts instructor Peter Caballes took
a script which had been written by his wife Cora for their company, Liliw
Productions, and turned it into Weng Weng's debut (this film
FOR Y'UR HEIGHT ONLY). It's success allowed Weng Weng to finish
WILD WENG WENG [which never found distribution outside of the Philippines]
and appear in various other television productions. A year later, Liliw
Production closed when Cora Caballes entered politics and Weng Weng's
acting career was over. But, in a bizarre twist of fate, Filipino president
General Ramos put Weng Weng through paratrooper training and assigned
him to security duty at the Manila Airport. Weng Weng developed hypertension
after a reaction to crabmeat, dying from a heart attack in August 1992,
a week before his 35 birthday.
