Actually, Oland had portrayed Charlie Chan at least 4 times before he played Nick in Mandalay. Three of these movies are among the 4 that are considered "lost", but, we've seen him do his Chan thing as early as 1931, in The Black Camel. I meant to give everyone a heads up on Mandalay, but, I goofed and let it slip by. It was great to see him as Dr. Yogami in The Werewolf of London, on Svengoolie's show a few days back. ...Ed K.
