Summary Chronicles the rise and fall of the Hollywood Shorties, a basketball team formed in 1949 from an insular group of recognizable-but-typecast dwarf actors. Begun as a rare outlet for these little people to gather publicly, the Shorties evolved by the early 1980s into niche entertainment akin to the Harlem Globetrotters and became the vanguard of a revolution to represent little people as something other than objects of curiosity.
Note Special features: Commentary track; SXSW Q&A; deleted scene; photo gallery; Shorties trailer; Junkfood Jenny's letter; Shorties vs. San Gabriel.
