Re: Charlie Chan at the Museum of Modern Art - 1968
Thank you so much for posting the brochure of this event on the Chan Family website. A couple of the stills I don't believe I've seen before, which is a gem in and of itself. However, I took special note of the commentary by Mr. Carey on the 4th page of the brochure "It is not the Oriental that is being laughed at in the Chan movies any more than it is the French in Miss Christie's Poirot novels; rather it is our cliche-ridden ideas of the Oriental, the French, that are being given back to us in their proper - ridiculous - perspective. We are laughing at ourselves". I think many of us on this board can attest to that truth.
Thank you again for sharing this interesting bit of Chan history with all of us.
