ENGLISH TELEVISION - J. Carroll Naish
The New Adventures of Charlie Chan - 1950s.
This version is added because of two things:  J. Carroll Naish was the only actor in the series above who went on to play Chan himself. . . .  What makes it even more interesting is he had played the villain in Circus, not to mention James Hong played son Jimmy, the only actor to do so in the series.   Which is a switch when you think of all the movies with Keye Luke, Victor Sen yung, and Benson Fong!
