This afternoon, while watching a Magnum, P.I. episode that was originally aired in Feb, 1983, I saw that a main character was played by our friend Keye Luke. He of course looked older than we remember him in the Chan movies, but younger than I might have thought. In this episode he played a Japanese-American, not a person of Chinese extraction. It's always interesting to see him in non-Chan movies.
Needless to say, in this script there was not a single "Hey Pop!" Luke left us in Jan, 1991, at age 86.
