Arrow Charlie Chan

Murder by Death (76) -Peter Falk...

The first Charlie Chan film was The House Without a Key (1926), a 10-chapter serial produced by Pathé Studios, starring George Kuwa, a Japanese actor, as Chan.. A year later Universal Pictures followed with The Chinese Parrot, starring Japanese actor, Kamiyama Sojin, in the starring role.. In both productions, Charlie Chan's role was minimized.. Contemporary reviews were unfavorable; in the words of one reviewer, speaking of The Chinese Parrot, Sojin plays "the Chink sleuth as a Lon Chaney cook-waiter...because Chaney can't stoop that low."..Three Spanish-language Charlie Chan films were made in the 1930s and 1950s. The first, Eran Trece (There Were Thirteen) (1931), is a Spanish-language version of Charlie Chan Carries On (1931)..During the 30s and 40s, 5 Chan films were produced in Shanghai and Hong Kong..On radio, Charlie Chan was heard in several different series on 3 networks (the NBC Blue Network, Mutual, and ABC) between 32 and 48.. Walter Connolly initially portrayed Chan on Esso Oil's 5 Star Theater, which serialized adaptations of Biggers novels.. in china shop is gentle creature compared to detective who make pass at man wearing glasses..3 murders.. All different.. Dog cannot chase 3 rabbits at same time.. Manning Case like modern highway..Sooner or later come to detour.. You are like turtle.. After everything all over...
