a comedy genius who has yet to recieve his recognition
23 May 2001 | by (NY,NY) – See all my reviews

someday Mantan will receive his just due. his comedy could never be duplicated. his films as Birmingham Brown opposite Charlie Chan are classics and should be hailed as so.His other features are well above comedy of today. That chubby little man made my sides ache with his antics."Feet don't fail me now"
