Victor Wong (actor, born 1906)

Victor Wong (September 24, 1906 – April 7, 1972) was an American actor. While Wong appeared in numerous films through the 1930s and 1940s, they were largely small uncredited parts. His biggest role was as Charlie the Cook in the movie King Kong (1933) and Son of Kong (1933). Wong's most memorable scene came in King Kong when he finds evidence that natives from Skull Island have been aboard the ship Venture, resulting in the kidnapping of heroine Ann Darrow. As Charlie the Cook, Wong yells, "All hands on deck! Everybody on deck!" This causes panic aboard ship which begins the quest for Ann's whereabouts and the discovery of King Kong. The Charlie character in the sequel Son of Kong was more prominent to the story and included significantly more screen time for Wong.
