Mantan regularly "Stole" those Charlie Chan films from is supposed stars! Everybody loved the comedy of this man and Chan and family would take a back seat when he was on screen! I also must say.....and Spider Baby!!!

I always liked him in the later Charlie Chan movies..Chan and CO. would go to check on a lead in some Prison and inevitably Morland would run into one of his old Pals now behind bars and they'd launch into a "memory lane" chat...his most famous or infamous however you look at it,have to be King of the Zombies..."I is a Zombie..I don'ts know nuthin'!"...and Spider Baby...

How cool that you posted this! I have a couple of films with Mantan Moreland. Alpha has them available on DVD. I regret that I don't know much about him, other than that he seemed to play a Rochester-type in B-movies. I'd like to know more about him. I just read his mini bio on IMDB. It said he was a master of the "infinite talk" routine. I've only seen that done once, in the film Stormy Weather (and I've forgotten the names of the two performers who did it). Anyway, Mantan was a funny guy.

It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
