There's a guy on ebay offering THE RETURN OF CHARLIE CHAN with Ross Martin as you-know-who, for $12, free shipping. So I got it!
It's taped off British TV, and is an excellent transfer. There's a few commercials not edited out, but even those have interest. No extras, just scene selection. My disc had volume levels so low I had to crank my system up to the proverbial "11", just one short of "Vesuvius".
I love Ross Martin, and he does a creditable job. The plot is VERY convoluted, and hard to follow. Charlie's kids actually are a help, and production values are pretty good. Others in the cast include the always enjoyable Richard Haydn, and Leslie Nielsen as a Greek shipping tycoon. This was in his serious days, pre-AIRPLANE, and he's oddly hard to accept. The women are all forgettably attractive.
Out of 10, maybe a 6. Much truer to Charlie than DRAGON QUEEN, of course, and Martin is better than Naish, but I can't see myself pulling this one off the shelf too often. Still, except for the "lost" films, the collection is complete!
