I first got hooked on the detective from Punchbowl Hill while watching his films on a weekly "Charlie Chan Film Festival" that aired late night on a local Boston TV station back in the early 70's. I was in my early teens, and I so enjoyed watching Charlie on my 13" B&W Panasonic TV set. The film was always preceeded by the host providing a brief synopsis of the film that was about to air.
Curious if anyone here is from the Boston area, and if so, do you remember catching Charlie Chan on WCVB-TV? I recently purchased a set of Charlie Chan flicks, and it's like catching up with an old friend.
