Re: Non-Chan depictions of Charlie Chan (as in Murder By Death and others)

Tenman,

I remember seeing the VW ad on TV when I was a kid! In the commercial we see Marvin Miller appear as Charlie Chan. Miller had a very distinguished career on radio, film, and television. He starred in "The Millionaire" TV series (1955-60), which I used to watch!, he was the voice of Robbie the Robot in "The Forbidden Planet" (1956), and interestingly, he played Dr. Yat Fu in the 1949-50 TV series "Mysteries of Chinatown." Although his portrayal in the commercial was tongue-in-cheek, I feel he looked good in the part!

Take care...thank you, again...

Sincerely,
Rush

Thank you for sharing this one, Lou. This was another one that I am pretty sure I saw "back in the day"!

We could start a collection of these!

Sincerely,
