In memoriam to Patrick Swayze, I’m Netflixing the Patrick Swayze movies I’ve loved over the years. To Wong Foo started up, and I had a question on trivia that I haven’t yet been able to find online.
In the movie, they are inspired by an iconic photograph of Julie Newmar, on which she has written “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar” (which becomes the title of the film). Now… my question is this. Did the illustrious Julie Newmar actually make that autograph in real life, or was it just a clever device for the film? If it was done in real life, then my question, my *real* question, is… Who’s Wong Foo?
The real Wong Foo, that is. If there is one.
The things I think of.
