The Fan
31 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Chinatown is the setting for this Peter Gunn episode, which really starts off with a dramatic opening. It's one of the more interesting ones I've seen.

Pete has to figure out why someone is so desperate to get their hands on a "fan," the kind used by Chinese dancers.

The interesting characters are led by Vic Perrin's "Silent Sy," a deaf-mute who has a crush on the fan dancer.

The only main character who isn't portrayed by an Asian actor is "Chang Li-Chang," an old man played by Richard Hale. With a good DVD transfer, Hale's makeup is pretty obvious. Otherwise, it is a credible and interesting story with some neat twists.
