Charlie Chan at the Olympics

Charlie Chan at the Olympics has a great cast of character actors.
We start our Monday Night Chat Room Movie (, 8 to 10 PM, Eastern Time) with Katherine De Mille as Yvonne Roland.
She's the infamous "Lady of the White Fox Fur!"
Who can forget Layne Tom, Jr. as Charlie Chan, Jr.?
With the possible exceptions of when he plays Willie Chan?!
And Pauline Moore, who also had such an impact in Reno.
[You have to look for her but she was one of Mae Clarke's bridesmaids in "Frankenstein!"
We also have several repeat performers, including C. Henry Gordon, John Eldredge and George Chandler of "Stew" fame in "Shanghai Cobra!"
Olympics also has two other ladies of note: Teresa Harris as a member of the US Team on the sidelines in Berlin. She's the only black actress in the Chan movies who DIDN'T play a maid!
Minerva Urecal [don't you love her name?] went from playing the Matron in the Girls' Dorm in the Berlin Olympic Village to the housekeeper in "The Trap" (the last Toler Chan).
I just wish we know what part John Carradine played before his scenes were cut out!
