If the "Oriental" detective Charlie Chan seen in Twentieth-Century Fox films of the 1930s and 1940s was such a cliched stereotype, why did so many Asian Americans seem to enjoy the films? Why was Werner Oland, the swedish actor who is best known for playing the character, celebrated as a "native son" when he visited China in the 1930s? The public reception and understanding of these films has often been as complicated as the murder mysteries they portray. This presentation offers an explanation for the films' reception, as well as an attempt to explain why the genre itself seemed to need a character like Charlie Chan. What emerges is a vision of the films in which race and ethnicity themselves become things to be strategically "parroted" rather than inhabited as essential categories.
