Broadway Observation

While watching Charlie Chan on Broadway today, as I was dubbing it to DVD, I noted that Insp. Nelson asked for a cigarette 5 times. Thought that could be added to the film notes section. I also noticed that when he was being grilled by Burke's Lawyer, Nelson interrupted him by asking for a cigarette. The reason I bring this up is that it seemed to me that he used it as a form of distraction to cause the lawyer to fumble in his thought process. Might be useful in our story project.

Rush, I believe you once mentioned that Bromberg was considered for taking over the role of Chan after Oland's death. Am I correct? I would say that he would have made a good Chan and maybe a good Moto too.
