BLACK CAMEL 1sheetAppears in Crime Movie Posters
BOOK SOLD OUT
The image at right appears in the book we published as shown above. While we once owned this item, we did not auction it through eMoviePoster.com (which is why no price or date is listed) nor do we have it available for purchase.
The Black Camel, the 1931 Hamilton MacFadden Asian detective mystery crime thriller ("Charlie Chan's Latest Thriller"; based on the novel by Earl Derr Biggers) starring Warner Oland (as Charlie Chan), Sally Eilers, Bela Lugosi, Dorothy Revier, Victor Varconi, William Post, Jr., and Robert Young (in his first credited role). Note that the very first Charlie Chan movie was "House Without a Key" in 1925, with George Kuwa as Chan. In 1927, "The Chinese Parrot" (directed by Paul Leni) starred Sojin Kamiyama as Chan. In 1929 came the third movie, "Behind That Curtain", starring E.L. Park as Charlie Chan. 1931 brought "Charlie Chan Carries On", starring Warner Oland in the first of many movies with him as the Asian detective, and he was later replaced by Sidney Toler and then Roland Winters (there would ultimately be 47 Charlie Chan movies!). Of course, Charlie Chan is one of the most memorable literary creations ever, from author Earl Derr Biggers, but because politically correct-minded people have viewed the character as outdated, the movies are rarely shown, which is a shame!
