Re: Keye Luke

It has occured to me that from a career perspective Keye Luke may have been better off not doing the post Oland Chan films.

By playing in a variety of other pictures he got wider exposure than he would have otherwise and probably honed his acting skills even more. As a result he was able to make a comfortable living as a character actor well into his 80s.

Sen Yung, by contrast, never enjoyed that kind of career success post Chan even taking his Bonanza years into account.


Re: Re: Keye Luke

You actually can see Sidney Toler & Keye Luke acting
together in "The Adventures Of Smilin Jack" A very
good serial from Universal....I believe made in late
1942 or early 43....It's the only known pairing of the two actors to my knowledge...highly recommened
