It's been 3 years since Charlie Chan films were knocked off the Fox Movie channel thanks to the meddling of the P.C. special interest groups. Well, the wait has paid off as these films are coming to dvd. This first collection will not only consist of four great films: Charlie Chan In London (1934), Charlie Chan In Paris (1935), Charlie Chan In Egypt(1935) and Charlie Chan in Shanghai (1935). But among the bonuses, we get Eran Trece, a Spanish Language Charlie Chan film made in (1931) Here's a list of all the extras in this set:

The Legacy of Charlie Chan Featurette - 15mins
In Search of Charlie Chan Featurette - 20 mins
The Real Charlie Chan Featurette - 20 mins
Eran Trece Fullscreen Feature (1931) - 79 mins
Charlie Chan In London Theatrical Trailer
Eran Trece Theatrical Trailer

Kudos to Fox Home Video for having the backbone to finally release these films to us mystery lovers. Hopefully, Mr. Moto will soon follow.

The Charlie Chan series was one of the most successful in Hollywood history and remains very popular today.

Several years ago, Fox spent over $2 million restoring all of their Chan and Mr. Moto films. Based on the limited TV airings they received, these films look and sound the best they have in years. Given Fox's stellar reputation for high quality transfers and their recent conversion to using original poster art for covers, these DVDs will be a wonderful addition to a classic film library.

Although all the Fox Chans benefited from strong writing and high production values, these early films were clearly "A" level productions with elaborate sets and strong supporting casts including Ray Milland and (in an early role) Rita Hayworth.

Kudos to Fox to recognizing the high demand for these films. Let's hope the remaining Chans and Motos will be fast tracked.

Urgent plea to Amazon - please remove the numerous listings of bootleg Chans. If this set is to succeed, consumers can't be confused by illegal wannabees.

AMEN THE GREAT CHARLIE CHAN IN A DVD BOX SET

Charlie Chan has always been a mystery hero of mine. This box set has four of the best Charlie Chan in a box. Included in the collection is Charlie Chan In London (1934), Charlie Chan In Paris (1935), Charlie Chan In Egypt(1935) and Charlie Chan in Shanghai (1935). Eran Trece, a only Spanish Language Charlie Chan film made (1931) is a bonus to this collection.

I bought some of the loose Chans that MGM released a few years ago. Films titles like Meeting at Midnight, Jade Mask, and Chinese Cat were good, but the masters transfers to DVD didn't seen clean enough copies.

My history with Charlie Chan began about thirty years ago. I remember seeing all the Chan in late 1970's on WDCA channel 20 on sundays. They would run an marathon afternoon of entertainment which started with a Chan film , then a Blondie movie (which are not a DVD yet), and then finally either a Ma and Pa Kettle or a Francis the Talking Mule or a Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes.

From those sundays, I was hooked on the Hawaii detective with his children-especially his number one or two sons. The mysteries were classic whodunits, the audience were playing along with the Amazing Chan

So Charlie, welcome to DVD-so when is the other 38 films to be released on DVD in a box sets

Confucius Meets Sherlock Holmes

One of the cultural icons of the 1930s, in print and on screen, was Charlie Chan. As is well known, Chan's creator, Earl Derr Biggers, based the figure upon a real Hawaiian detective,Chang Apana. But underneath the disguise we have no difficulty in detecting the features of Sherlock Holmes. At a moment when Asian characters frequently appeared in Western novels or stage plays as kowtowing houseboys or opium smoking fiends, Biggers showed real audacity in coming up with his sleuth.

But he was tapping into another stereotype, that of China as a land of ancient wisdom populated by oracular mandarins, from whose golden tongues aphorisms from Confucius or Lao Tzu flew like plum blossoms in the spring wind. Charlie Chan is Sherlock Holmes as an Eastern sage. Chan is a man of impeccable dignity and aplomb, who has no bottles hidden in his desk drawers and no blondes lurking in his closet, and who solves crimes by superior skull skills, in the words of Churchy La Femme.

There had been a couple of attempts at transferring Chan to celluloid in the 1920s, but the series really geared up when Fox cast Warner Oland in the role in 1931. Oland, who had previously played Jackie Robin's father in The Jazz Singer and the sinister Dr. Fu Manchu in some early sound pictures at Paramount, was no great actor, but he made the role of Chan incontestably his own. It is just as impossible for anyone who has ever seen Oland as Chan to imagine another actor in the role as it is to imagine anyone other than Basil Rathbone playing Sherlock Holmes.
