Doomed to Die

As authentically Chinese as the Kung Pow chicken at your local mall, it's the great detective, Mr. Wong! So get yourself a bowl of pork fried rice and listen to us chew the fat on an 80 year old wave of Americanized Oriental Investigators. Funny how Hollywood used to have white actors play different ethnicities. Glad we don't do that anymore, right? Don't get us wrong, we love all the weirdness of Wong, and looking back on the hows and whys of how this trend became popularised is some particularly fascinating insight you don't want to miss out on. For better or worse the yellow faced detective has gone the way of the dodo, I guess some fads are Doomed to Die
