Description
Inspector Charlie Chan of the Honolulu Police was the first Asian detective hero in American literature. Earl Derr Biggers introduced the Chinese-born sleuth in 1925, and Hollywood soon capitalized on his popularity. He was originally played by Warner Oland, and then Sidney Toler took over the role; ironically, they were both Caucasian. Released in 1944–45, these three films are enjoyable genre mysteries in which the sleuth is "aided" in his crimesolving by his bumbling children in order to find the master spy responsible for an inventor's murder; run a gauntlet of funhouse tricks to help a damsel in distress; and cope with a meddlesome family while solving the murder of a brilliant scientist.
