Park it!

Light posting again for a while, alas. I leave you to ponder this:

and this!:

There are some substantial rarities in this new four-disc, five-feature box. “Behind That Curtain,” directed by Irving Cumming in 1929, was the first appearance of Charlie Chan in a Fox film, though he is quite low in the cast of what is essentially a W. Somerset Maugham-like melodrama of romantic intrigue in the tropics. This Chan appears only in a couple of scenes, and is played by one of the few Asian actors to be given the role, the mysterious E. L. Park. (This is his only known credit.)
