Movie Reviews

LONG LIVE INSPECTOR CHAN OF THE HONOLULU P.D!
Ghoulchick | Bronx, New York United States | 03/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's been 3 years since Charlie Chan films were knocked off the Fox Movie channel thanks to the meddling of the P.C. special interest groups. Well, the wait has paid off as these films are coming to dvd. This first collection will not only consist of four great films: Charlie Chan In London (1934), Charlie Chan In Paris (1935), Charlie Chan In Egypt(1935) and Charlie Chan in Shanghai (1935). But among the bonuses, we get Eran Trece, a Spanish Language Charlie Chan film made in (1931) Here's a list of all the extras in this set:

The Legacy of Charlie Chan Featurette - 15mins
In Search of Charlie Chan Featurette - 20 mins
The Real Charlie Chan Featurette - 20 mins
Eran Trece Fullscreen Feature (1931) - 79 mins

Eran Trece Theatrical Trailer

Kudos to Fox Home Video for having the backbone to finally release these films to us mystery lovers. Hopefully, Mr. Moto will soon follow.

Fox comes through!

"The Charlie Chan series was one of the most successful in Hollywood history and remains very popular today.

Several years ago, Fox spent over $2 million restoring all of their Chan and Mr. Moto films. Based on the limited TV airings they received, these films look and sound the best they have in years. Given Fox's stellar reputation for high quality transfers and their recent conversion to using original poster art for covers, these DVDs will be a wonderful addition to a classic film library.

Although all the Fox Chans benefited from strong writing and high production values, these early films were clearly "A" level productions with elaborate sets and strong supporting casts including Ray Milland and (in an early role) Rita Hayworth.

Kudos to Fox to recognizing the high demand for these films. Let's hope the remaining Chans and Motos will be fast tracked.

Urgent plea to Amazon - please remove the numerous listings of bootleg Chans. If this set is to succeed, consumers can't be confused by illegal wannabees."

"AMEN THE GREAT CHARLIE CHAN IN A DVD BOX SET

Charlie Chan has always been a mystery hero of mine. This box set has four of the best Charlie Chan in a box. Included in the collection is Charlie Chan In London (1934), Charlie Chan In Paris (1935), Charlie Chan In Egypt(1935) and Charlie Chan in Shanghai (1935). Eran Trece, a only Spanish Language Charlie Chan film made (1931) is a bonus to this collection.

I bought some of the loose Chans that MGM released a few years ago. Films titles like Meeting at Midnight, Jade Mask, and Chinese Cat were good, but the masters transfers to DVD didn't seen clean enough copies.


My history with Charlie Chan began about thirty years ago. I remember seeing all the Chan in late 1970's on WDCA channel 20 on sundays. They would run an marathon afternoon of entertainment which started with a Chan film , then a Blondie movie (which are not a DVD yet), and then finally either a Ma and Pa Kettle or a Francis the Talking Mule or a Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes.

From those sundays, I was hooked on the Hawaii detective with his children-especially his number one or two sons. The mysteries were classic whodunits, the audience were playing along with the Amazing Chan

So Charlie, welcome to DVD-so when is the other 38 films to be released on DVD in a box sets

Hey Fox, it's about time!!
The Purple Heart | USA | 03/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Fox studios finally decided to tell the P C folks to go take a ---- and please the mystery movie buffs who see nothing but pure, wholesome mystery entertainment in these great, old, films. I must make you aware that the pics of the litter will be the ones from 1931 to 1938. In this release " The Black Camel ", you will see Bela in a small supporting role and appearing very non - Drac. The studio did put more cash into each of those efforts in that period when Warner Oland potrayed Chan.

The following years when Sidney Toler took over the reins as Chan the budget was smaller, the story lines not quite as good, and the rating for the Chan of 1939 - 46 should actually be 4 stars. So this rating is a mixed bag by circumstance.

I do have all the Chan movies ( taped off TV ) and seldom watch the Roland Winters / Chan efforts. Jimmy Chan and "Birmingham" Brown do lend a hand but the plots and productions show a lesser effort. Just buy the groups that make you happy and "light up a mystery" for the whole family."
