Description

All 39 episodes of CHARLIE CHAN, starring J. Carrol Naish, in this ten-disc box set. Uncut, unedited and in chronological order. Oddly, the first five episodes were filmed in the United States and the remaining episodes were filmed in England (which eliminated the possibility of notable guest stars), but it’s still a nice amusement. Naish's interpretation of Chan differed not at all, in terms of accent at least, from the character he played as the evil Dr. Daka in a Batman serial. There are few of the famous aphorisms regularly spouted by Chan in any of the series films which is somewhat of a disappointment. A minor drawback is the absence of the famous Charlie Chan goatee and bowler hat replaced by a straight mustache, a straight bow-tie and a fedora. The opening shot of Naish as Chan coming from out of the London fog is still impressive, as are the Chinese titles that change to say "The New Adventures Of Charlie Chan."
