Pychotronic Movie of the Week: FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY (1981)



FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY (original title: For Y'ur Height Only)
1979
Liliw Pictures International
Philippines 

Produced by Peter M. Caballes 
Directed by Eddie Nicart

Michael J. Weldon writes in The Psychotronic Video Guide:

"One of the ultimate spy spoofs stars 2'9" dwarf Weng Weng as Agent 00. He uses James Bond type gadgets and martial arts to battle the bad guys, and he gets the girl. In real life (according to Guinness, "the shortest actor to play a leading role in films") he was a paratrooper and black belt. He also stared in Agent 00 (1981). The bad English dubbing adds unintentional humor."
