I don't really know when I first found this group, but it seems like it was quite awhile ago. I enjoyed the posts back when there was far more action on the board and I learned a good bit about the movies and the actors.
I first discovered the Chan movies in the 1950s when they appeared once a week on a channel we could pick up out of York, PA on UHF channel 43. They showed the Monogram Sidney Toler Chans, so for a long time, I preferred Toler as Chan. Once hooked, I tried to catch a Chan movie on TV at every opportunity. I don't recall catching many Chan movies in the 1960s, which I spend mostly in college and grad school. In the 1970s, I again found a TV station that regularly showed Chan movies and I got to see some I didn't recall seeing in the 1950s, including the older Warner Oland Chans.
I was overjoyed when the movies started coming out on professional DVDs.
