ASIAN HEROES AND VILLIANS II
One mistake in yesterday's blog -- The Charlie Chan films didn't start up in the 1940s. Mark Schreiber informs me that the Chan movies can be traced back to the early 30s. He also sent along an interesting piece of trivia: the first Charlie Chan film was a silent movie released in 1928, featuring George Kuwa, a Japanese-American as the Honolulu detective.
