A Curious Cast of Actors in Circus

There are some definitely interesting actors in the cast of Charlie Chan at the Circus!

Starting with George and Olive Brasno. Many people have thought they were a married couple like they appeared in Circus, the only Chan movie they made, but they were actually a brother and sister. They appeared in eight movies, one of which (Little Miss Broadway - 1938) as themselves.

Francis Ford was the brother of the director John Ford; he had also directed and written other movies.

J. Carrol Naish had a unique spot in Chandom. He played both a villain in Charlie Chan at the Circus and Chan, himself, in the English television series, The New Adventures of Charlie Chen (c. 1958).
