Overview

Phil Rosen's Charlie Chan thriller The Jade Mask (1945) has been released on a more-than-decent DVD edition by MGM Home Video as part of its "Chanthology" set. The 66-minute movie is a diverting entry in the Monogram Pictures series, with less humor than some of the earlier films in the series and some very strange set elements. It looks better than any television presentation released in the past, even in the realistically dark night shots. The contrasts and details are excellent, and the sound, though mastered at a low volume, is very crisp. The 16 chapters break the plot down very well. There is no trailer or other bonus features, apart from optional English, French, and Spanish subtitles.

I'm an old Charlie Chan fan. I have watched since I was a little girl. They have done a wonderful job restoring the movie. I hope that I can fine more of them. I now have about 26.
