Charlie Chan, a Winning Series!

Charlie Chan. To some, that name conjures up an unfortunate Hollywood stereotype. Truth is, the actors that played the character in the 30's and 40's were not Chinese. No matter, all of the performers, had great respect for and I feel, portrayed the character with respect and class. Sidney Tolar was so happy to play the character, that when they had planned to cancel the C.C. series, Tolar bought the rights so he could make more movies! Here is the restored one sheet to one of the best of the Tolar Chans. Enjoy.
