The Shanghai Chest Most Watched

The Shanghai Chest has some of the best-known, and best-loved, character actors in Chandom who are in two or more of the Chan movies!

They include two of the more unusually named actors: "Erville" Anderson, "Chabing," and "Tristran Coffin." What were their parents thinking?!

One of the actors, Mike Ryan, gives us a link to television in the sixties with "The Beverly Hillbillies" since he had been married to Irene Ryan ("Granny") at one time!
