Day 19

Charlie Chan is an awesome character.  He’s subtle, smart, unsuspecting and original.  If you haven’t read any books featuring him, I’d suggest starting with his first appearance, “The House Without A Key.”  It’s a classic slice of American life in the 20’s in Hawaii.  Good stuff.  Above is a tribute to the Charlie Chan of the movies (played by Swedish actor Warner Oland… yes, Swedish).  Lots more stills from the films here.
