DVD Featurette
16 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Featurette that is on the Charlie Chan in Paris DVD. It basically covers the creation of Charlie Chan. It begins with a biography of Chan creator Earl Derr Biggers. Then it goes on to discuss the growth of Chan in films, from a rocky start in the silent era to the successful Warner Oland series. It was interesting to discover Earl Derr Biggers loved Warner Oland as Chan but hated the aphorisms we all love and associate with the detective. They go over most of the Oland films. They talk about Keye Luke's Number One Son and what he brought to the series. In discussing Charlie Chan in Egypt, they bring up Stepin Fetchit and talk about his very dated and offensive role. Knowing nothing much about the history behind Charlie Chan, I found a lot of this interesting stuff. It's a nice featurette that I'm sure fans of Charlie Chan will enjoy.
