Did You Know?


The story "Made in Chinatown" was in part inspired by writer Mark V. Wiley's love of elements in four films: The Pope of Greenwich Village (1984), Big Trouble in Little China (1986), The Freshman (1990), and Kiss Me, Guido (1997). This was merged with his obsession with the Shaw Bros. classic '80s kung-fu flicks, featuring Meng Lo and Feng Lu. See more »
