COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Cast (feature film)

1.
Hollywood Chinese: The Chinese in American Film (2008)
A multi-faceted look at American cinema, from the early 1900s up to the present day, through the lens of the Chinese American experience, and through films from an industry that was often uninformed about issues regarding race, but at times surprisingly sensitive.

3.
Healer (1994) as Igor Vostovich
Episodic drama about two ambulance paramedics who tend to a retirement community at a beach.
4.
Prisoners of the Casbah (1953) as Ahmed
A typical Sam Katzman sand-and-sandals saga that is better than his later "Harem Scarum" only because this one doesn't have Elvis Presley. Gloria Grahame is the princess, Turhan Bey is the Captain of the Guard and Cesar Romero is the oily villain who has his sights set on Gloria and her father's throne. Romero and his henchmen cause Gloria, disguised as a boy (what a waste!), and Turhan to flee to the Casbah, where they plot to strike back at Romero.

Out of the Blue (1947) as David Galleo
Set in an apartment building whose occupants include Arthur Earthleigh (George Brent), a meek and mild type married to the beautiful-but-domineering Mae (Carole Landis); a Bohemian artist, David Galleo (Turhan Bey) and his always-there model, Deborah Tyler (Virginia Mayo); and Olive Jensen (Ann Dvorak), a Greenwich Village type who is always slightly-but-continuously inebriated, and whose motto is "love and let love." She calls on George while his wife is out, and when she passes out during his attempts to get her out before his wife returns, he thinks she is dead and deposits her on Galleo's terrace. Galleo takes advantage of the situation by using it in a blackmail scheme against Arthur, which is shakey, at best, as Olive refuses to stay dead.

Junior G-Men of the Air (1942)
The third of Universal's three serials headlining the Dead End Kids and Little Tough Guys (preceded by "Junior G-Men" and "Sea Raiders") is the 55th of Universal's sound-era serials (followed "Gang Busters" and ahead of "Overland Mail") and is the last 12-chapter serial (despite some source that lists it as 13 chapters) released by Universal; "Overland Mail" had 15 episodes while the remaining 13 serials released by Universal Pictures (none of which were ever distributed to theatres by MCA/Universal which didn't exist in the years that Universal produced serials) were all 13 episodes. This one finds the gang, Billy "Ace" Holden (Billy Halop), "Bolts" Larson (Huntz Hall), "Stick" Munsey (Gabriel Dell) and "Greaseball" Plunkett (Bernard Punsly) working in an airplane/auto junk yard owned by Ace's father (Eddy Waller.) Their truck is stolen by members of a fifth column organization, the Order of the Black Dragonfly, but when government agent Don Ames (Richard Lane) returns the recovered truck, Ace, who distrusts law men, refuses to give Ames a description of the men who stole the truck. Ames decides to let Jerry Markham (Frank Albertson), young leader of the Junior G-Men, who knows both Ace and his brother Eddie (Gene Reynolds) through their mutual interest in airplanes and flying, try to gain Ace's cooperation. The Axis agents, Araka (Turhan Bey), Augar (John Bagni), Beal (John Bleifer), Monk (Noel Cravat) and Comora (Edward Forrest), report to the Japanese leader of the Black Dragonfly, The Baron (Lionel Atwill), at his farmhouse headquarters outside the city. In an attempt to track down the spies, Ace and his friends drive their truck near the farm and are spotted by the enemy agents. Monk, the gang's pilot, tries to bomb the truck and the boys appear doomed. But not so with many chapters still remaining in this 12-chapter-only serial

Burma Convoy (1941) as Mr. Yuchau
Film foreword: "Through the teeming heart of Asia, halfway between Rangood and Shanghai, twists the hand-hewn Burma Road, lifeline for the embattled Army of China, headquartered at Chungking. Over this dangerous seven hundred miles of highway roars a stream of truck---hell drivers at their wheels---trucks loaded with food, munitions, guns...blood and sinew of the defenders of the ancient soil of China. Fountain-head for these vital supplies, end of the rail line from the west is the sprawling Burmese BOOMTOWN OF LASHIO." Story mostly pertains to the trucking of munitions to the Chinese Army under British direction and with some Americans participating, but there is no dialogue references to Japan, and the parachute troops who attempt to sabotage the convoy are identified as Chinese insurrectionists. Two months after its October release, Universal could have called a spade a spade.Accuracy footnote:Despite revisionists sources that seem to think so,this was not distributed in 1941 by MCA/Universal, because MCA/Universal did not exist in 1941. Universal Pictures Company did, and they were the distributor.
