I would like to know how many references to Charlie's Chinese background there are in his movies. I recently saw one film where William Demerest refers to Charlie as Chop Suey
To Craig Moore:
I believe the title to the movie you asked about is "Charlie Chan at the Race Track".
Where can I purchase a movie (VHS or DVD) of "Charlie Chan in Egypt"? Why did Fox Movies decide not to show Charlie Chan movies on TV? Why are people offended by them?
Riban, if you click our link in the yellow box at the top of this page, and then click on the Ebay link, type in the name of the video there. There are currently copies of this video for sale. Good luck! Emailed you.
For you folks that don't hang around the Charlie Chan Message Board that often, the Return of the Great Chan Poll is upon us:
The Great Chan Poll:
1. Pick your Top 10 Chan movies of all time; it can be either your favorite films or the ones you consider the best, either way.
2. Place the movies in 1 to 10 order, with number 1 being your favorite/best film and number 10 being your 10th favorite/best Chan film.
3. There can be ties if you wish, such as 2 films being #5...if this happens, then there is no #6, and you start the list again at #7. There can be no more than 10 films total even with ties. Please try to keep ties at a minimum.
4. You must email me your Top Tens at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will not accept any polls listed on the website, as this has influenced folks in the past on their own polls.
5. I will run this Poll for two weeks and announce the results on August 3. I will not post any running totals, as this influences people's votes as well, we want your opinion, this is your poll to choose what you want as your favorite Chans.

I want to say that I absolutely LOVE Charlie Chan films. As a child, I would wake up extremely early and see Charlie Chan doing something in the wee hours of Saturday morning on Channel 2 from Greensboro, NC. Be it at a wax museum or him just keeping Birmingham and his daughter out of trouble for a " Meeting at Midnight " ( my personal favorite... ), I always enjoyed this movies.
( Sigh ) These days, I have to listen to that piece of human excrement Guy Aoki and his inane ramblings about how Charlie Chan was offensive. I'm sorry, but that's just wrong. As much as I love Charlie Chan, to me it's sad that we have to listen to idiots like Guy Aoki, who want to use these classic mystery movies to make a name for themselves.
Anyway, I love the series. Any and all, feel free to email me at Darkmonarch2003@hyahoo.com to discuss this further.
Y'all take care...
First I just want to say that I too love Charlie Chan movies and I just don't understand how someone could think of him as offensive. I guess that being based on a real detective and ,as the character of Charlie Chan, he was a very well known and respected detective world wide that could solve crimes that noone else could ,and taking place at the time when they did with all the stupid prejudices that were around--yes, I guess that would make him offensive ------NOT!!!!!
