Otherwise known as THE SONS OF CHARLIE CHAN
Charlie Chan has been recognized by fans and critics as one of the most famous of fictional screen detectives, achieving prominence both in the novels of creator Earl Derr Biggers and, of course, through a series of popular films made throughout the 30s and 40s: The Golden Age of Hollywood.
Assisting the Chinese master detective in solving puzzling and intriguing cinematic mysteries are his Americanized Number One, Two and Three sons: each eager, well-meaning . . . and occasional bumbling. While much has been written about the movie history of Chan, Scott Allen Nollen’s series is the first to focus on the actors who portrayed his key offspring: Keye Luke, (Victor) Sen Yung and Benson Fong. Through the pages of Volume 1, readers will learn about the backgrounds, early ambitions and the interesting circumstances that landed each their most famous role. In addition, Scott provides detailed information about other early screen appearances and offers a personal look into their lives away from the camera.
Volume I of THE SONS OF CHARLIE CHAN is a fascinating read, an important Hollywood historical reference and an invaluable addition to any film fan’s library.
