A bomb fell on Shorty in WWII, turning him into "Ground Round."

Got himself a trench coat, built himself Bully Blinders, Pincers of Peril, and Slick Shoes, became a Goonie and went off to find One-Eyed Willie's treasure!

Isent there a way we can write to Steven Spielburg or Goerge Lucas and ask them to put in a Special Scene in Crystal Skull so that Indy can say what happend to Shorty and Willie, i would go for Willie Adopted Shorty and they lived in America.

yeah, if you send it in within the next 9 hours they should have just enough time to shoot the scenes, edit, reprint and ship all the new versions of the film to the theaters

inn seriousness thought, I would have liked to see them, but it wouldn't have really fit that well i think. David Koepp who wrote the script said he didn't want to make it a 'fan script'. it some of makes me sad because I would love to learn what happened to them and to see them again, but a the same time it may not be very realistic to see characters like that come back all of a sudden

While looking for an appropriate thread to post in, I noticed there was an almost identical one to this.

Long story short I've just been re-watching the marvellous 55 Days at Peking and was struck by a similarity, if not a partial inspiration for Short Round.

In this film Lynne Sue Moon's character, Teresa, is the eleven-year-old orphan of a US Marine captain father and a Chinese mother. Captain Marshall had promised to take his daughter "home" to Illinois, though he was actually having second thoughts: "They'd treat her like a freak back home." Charlton Heston's character, Major Matt Lewis, agrees: she's "better off with her own kind".

After Marshall dies Teresa's dream is still to go to America. Major Lewis is at first reluctant, but by the end of the film his attitude is transformed and he lifts Teresa onto the back of his horse, implying that he will take her with him to America.

In Temple of Doom the reluctance of the leading man to get involved, and his subsequent transformation, occurs at the Indian village. And we know from the expanded universe that Short Round was taken to America.


While Googling some facts another possible inspiration popped up: the 1951 film, The Steel Helmet, which I see Crack that whip noted here some years ago.

In the Korean War, the prisoner of war Sergeant Zack and only survivor of his company is released by an orphaned South-Korean boy called Short Round. The actor playing this Short Round was William Chun, who was 11 years old at the time of The Steel Helmet.

I hope Willie did. Look at the history of Asia. Short Round would've suffered if he stayed in China.

"Stayed in China"? Maybe you mean, "returned to China"?

We saw Shorty escape China. He didn't stay and was on his way to the U.S.A.
