Short Round

Kennon Wong, nicknamed Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan), has been through a lot. He’s an orphan from the Second Sino-Japanese War, he earns a living as an 11-year-old driving a taxicab in Shanghai, and he assists Indiana Jones on his mission. But his unique nickname has nothing to do with any of these — Short Round is named after the screenwriters’ pet dog.
