Re: OUR CCF MONDAY EVENING CHAT AND FILM VIEWING FOR May 18: “Charlie Chan in City in Darkness”
Yes, Huber's Marcel was a bit over the top! Today, he would probably be diagnosed as being ADHD! Some years ago, Virginia Johnson, in writing to Kay Linaker, actually asked about Huber's portrayal of Marcel. Her answer was something to the effect that it was the director's (Herbert Leeds) "fault"! I guess we can at least see this as an example of Huber's "range" as an actor.
