Big and Little Wong Tin Bar (大小黃天霸/大小黄天霸 in Chinese, also called 橫掃江南七霸天, translated to Seven Little Valiant Fighters) is a lost Hong Kong martial arts film from 1962, notable for being Jackie Chan's film debut. The film featured the Seven Little Valiant Warriors, including Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung as children. The film follows the life of a child learning martial arts to become a Kung Fu warrior.
For years, it was thought that the only remaining footage from the film was the short clip shown in the documentary Jackie Chan: My Story. However, on August 23, 2012, a 9-minute excerpt from the film was uploaded on a Chinese video site called Youku, by a user called "富士蘋果". On December 2, 2015, a YouTube user called oraTAXI (深宵影院) uploaded a 25-minute excerpt from the film. On December 23rd of the same year, oraTAXI uploaded the entire film on YouTube, but the film appeared to be washed out in terms of picture, which had a sepia-colored tone, and has a watermark on the bottom left, bearing the screen name of the uploader (深宵影院). On May 6, 2016, the same user who had uploaded the 25-minute excerpt and the watermarked version of the entire film uploaded a version of the film, which was in black and white (as seen from the excerpts) as well as no watermark from the uploader. This upload appears to be the original untouched version of the film.
