Yankee Dawg You Die
"Vincent and Bradley convey the past and contemporary dilemmas that Asian American actors face. While Bradley, a young actor who will not take demeaning or stereotypic roles, can look down on Vincent as a "Chinese Stepinfetchit", [the older actor] justifies his career as a product of historical choice... In the end their viewpoints are ironically reversed when Bradley rationalises his acceptance of a role in an exploitative film, while Vincent decides to perform in an independent Asian feature."--p.xx-xxi.
