Thank you very much for posting this! :D I didn't know Chiquito appeared as another Chinese character apart from his Mr Wong.

I am Gershom Chua po, a student taking up my Masters in Film in UP Diliman, and I am presently doing my thesis on the Chinese Filipino and film. I was hoping to ask if you'd know if there are still copies of this film around? Thank you very much! May God continue to bless you and your great work! :D
