Charlie Chan History

Kamiyama Sojin, Charlie Chan in The Chinese Parrot, was born in Sendal, Japan, on January 30, 1884.
It mentions that the first three Chan movies were silents, The House Without a Key, The Chinese Parrot and Behind That Curtain.
I don't know if Behind That Curtain started out as a silent but I do have a copy of it as a talkie. It's technically a Chan movie since Earl Derr Biggers' character does appear briefly but it was made over as a vehicle for Warner Baxter!
