Old Time Radio Show
Charlie Chan & Mr. Moto
MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
With requisite Chinese chords and stings from the organist… we have several selections from the casebook of the Incomparable Charlie Chan, Detective, Philosopher, and Modern Chinese Sage. Thrills, excitement and comedy are promised. And pearls of wisdom, as well. "Solution, like pearl, is gained through much minor irritation."
Charlie Chan was the Chinese detective created by Earl Derr Biggers. Over 40 Charlie Chan movies were done from the early 1930's through 1949, all of which starred non-Chinese actors as Charlie. Supposedly working as a Honolulu police detective, Charlie was almost always somewhere else, like Paris, Rio, LA, even Treasure Island…but he did have a wonderful home life, too, with a reported 14 children, including his famous #1, #2 etc. sons, ever intent on helping "pop" solve the case.
Still, it's fun to hear radio's daytime serial version of the Hawaiian family man who gave us all a little exotic wit and wisdom while uncovering dishonorable culprit. The other shows are more of "the incomparable" at work. Unfortunately, Chan on radio is very rare, the very opposite of the ubiquitous Charlie Chan movie reruns on TV. This is a mysterious absence even the great Charlie Chan might be needed to solve!
Many mystery lovers sniff at Chan. But here's one more from Charlie that might apply…"Mind, like parachute, only function when open."
Some other classic detectives on radio are Sherlock Holmes, Blackstone The Magic Detective, Nick Carter, Philo Vance and The Falcon. Also there's Nero Wolfe, The Saint, and a host of private eyes like Philip Marlowe, Sam Spade, Johnny Dollar, and Richard Diamond.
For more brainy detectives, see also: Softboiled Detectives.
Mr. Moto was conceived out of the popularity Charlie Chan. Though Charlie Chan is of Chinese-descent and Mr. Moto was Japanese, both fit into the category often described as "oriental-sleuth." In this type of show, the detectives were of Asian descent and spoke with a foreign accents regardless of the nationality of the performer. Like all detective-mystery old time radio shows, in each show the protagonist single-handedly discovered the origin of the crime thus saving the day.
