Charlie Chan films ...

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if anyone has posted anything about this topic, but I was just curious as to everyones opinion about The Fox Movie Channel not airing any "Charlie Chan" films because of political correctness. I'm not sure if they will ever release any more of the "Chan" films on DVD, besides the "Chantology" that's already available ...

Allie: The films you listed wouldn't be on FMC anyway. Fox doesn't own them, they are the Warner owned Monogram titles.

 

Fox is supposdly going to release their surviving Chan and Moto films on DVD in the next few years.

 

FYI: Chantology is Warner

Warner Oland is the best Charlie Chan, in my opinion, and I'm glad to know that later this year will see the DVD release of four of the Oland/20th Century Fox Chan films...

Warner Oland is the best Charlie Chan,

 

I like Sidney Toler the best, with Warner a close second.

 

However, Roland Winters should be boiled in a vat of oil for what he did to the character.

 

Oh, and Mantan Moreland was wonderful, as was Sen Yung.

 

Dave, you don't want to know my thoughts on PC and what the morons who espouse it should go do with themselves. Just THINK of what they are trying to deny those who have no exposure to the entire Chan experience. It just boggles the mind and I can't do the subject justice without getting very, very, very angry.

Whomever plays Chrle Chan, I'd just like to see them all. Now why in hell doesn't TCM aire them instead of their usual often seen things that for most part ought to be wearing ever so thin...

Lol, I watched all the Charlie Chan films on TV all during my childhood, but I never knew there were two different guys playing Charlie Chan until I was almost 50 years old. The actors look alike to me. Lol.

Oh, suuuure. The old "all non-Chinese actors who played Charlie Chan look alike to me" insult. Watch out! The PC police are everywhere!
