A US TV network has cancelled its summer-long Charlie Chan movie festival after receiving numerous complaints that the old movies bolster racial stereotypes of Asian-Americans.
Dozens of Chan movies were made by 20TH CENTURY Fox in the 1930s and '40s, many of them starring Swedish actor Warner Oland as a Hawaiian-Chinese detective. Many of the actors appear in yellow face-paint and with buck teeth.
But film critics say the movies, which were to have been shown on FOX MOVIE CHANNEL, are a part of Hollywood history.
KEN HANKE, author of CHARLIE CHAN AT THE MOVIES, says, "It's dangerous and a major subversion of Asian culture to try to bury these films."02/07/2003 02:35
