Our Chan Veterans in Castle in the Desert

Our Chan veterans in Charlie Chan in Egypt include some classic actors like Douglas Dumbrille as Mr. Manderley. He married the daughter of his friend, Alan Mowbray when Dumbrille was 70 and Patricia Mowbray was a tender 28 years old.

Castle also has a trio of actors that pop up again together in Dead Men Tell: Lenita Lane, Ethel Griffies and Milton Parsons!

One actor, George Chandler, made a memorable place for himself in The Shanghai Cobra as Joe, the Cafe owner, who made the beef stew that no one wanted! He was also the President of the Screen Actors' Guild from 1960-1963.
