I love old movies, and I love mysteries, so I really enjoy this series. Each DVD also has interviews/commentary on e.g. the actors and the social context in which the films were made. Really fascinating.

Boris Karloff was 49 years old, Warner Oland was 57 years old when "Charlie Chan At The Opera" (1936) was released. Policeman William Demarest has the line "No Chinese cop is going to show me!". He even calls Chan "Chop Suey" so often you'd think that was Chan's real name. Whatever happened to the good old days when people could joust with each other without a protest group crying over it?

It's just another wonderful Warner Oland
Charley Chan story.

For me, there is no better Chan.

I also love the Sidney Tolers, although those ten to be a bit looser in the plot but just as cute.

The Twentieth Century Oland movies
are, in my opinion, the best of the whole
series. bar none.

When Fox went to Sydney Toler, the general
superiority and attention had to drop a bit.

However, the cuteness of the plots, and the characterizations simply got looser and better.

I treasure Charlie Chan even from the dregs of Monogram.

It's the spirit that will not die.
