The cast for Tuesday's Chat Night Movie,* The Shanghai Cobra, has some well-known characters. Or at least their faces are familiar!
Gene [Stuten]Roth, as Morgan, was also seen in such diverse shows as in The Three Stooges shorts and the Perry Mason series with Raymond Burr in the 1950's. He also appeared in Charlie Chan in the Secret Service with Cyril Delevanti (here as Detective Larkin in Cobra) as the butler.
Addison Richards, as John Adams, was another character actor of note, having played Polly Benedict's father in the Andy Hardy movies.
James Flavin, as H.R. Jarvis, was one of the sailors who went in search of King Kong with Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, and Bruce Cabot.
George Chandler is the best known of the character actors in Shanghai Cobra as Joe, the coffee shop owner, who kept trying to sell his home-made-from-scratch stew!
Have fun seeing who you recognize!
