An "inscrutable" series!
8 March 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I came across the other review as I was viewing the screen record of James Hong who was acting in 2008 version of The Day the Earth stood Still. Looking at Hongs' Screen Career and all the early TV series he appeared in is like looking at a Who's Who of Television? He has appeared in such revered episodes as Sugarfoot with Will Hutchins, Cheyenne with Clint Walker,Wagon Train with Robert Horton,Have Gun Will Travel with Richard Boone,Rawhide with a young Clint Eastwood and Bonanza with the late Lorne Greene and Michael Landon to name a few. In Charlie Chan with J.Carrol Naish he was always the Number One Son who helped Naish right the wrongs and I imagine Hong has NEVER been unemployed in his life.A wonderful actor,never THE star sometimes sad,funny or serious but always so watchable.
