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 1962 Hong Kong martial arts film, notable for being Jackie Chan's film debut. The film featured the "Seven Little Valiant Warriors", including Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung when they were 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 a short clip shown in the documentary Jackie Chan: My Story. However, on August 23rd, 2012, a 9-minute excerpt of the film was uploaded on Chinese video site Youku by a user called "富士蘋果". On December 2nd, 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 then uploaded the entire film, but the footage appeared to be sepia-tone, and it had a watermark in the bottom left corner bearing the screen name of the uploader.
Finally, on May 6th, 2016, the same user who had uploaded the previous two videos uploaded a version of the film that was in black and white (as seen from the excerpts) and without the uploader's watermark. This upload appears to be the original version of the film.
oraTAXI's account was later terminated along with the video of the original film, but a reupload was found and placed on archive.org.
