Thank you so much to you and Patty, Jacqueline for the idea and hosting this in honor of Paddy. We all needed to express our fondness and how much we'll miss her presence in this world of ours.

I will head to all tributes later but had to express my gratitude to you first.

Hi Jacqueline, here's my post! Thank you for honoring Paddy in this way and for allowing me to contribute.

It took me awhile to accept, much less appreciate, the cinematic Charlie Chan, but Paddy was the one who helped me do it. When she and I co-hosted a blogathon, you did a post about another movie featuring a white guy in yellowface: A MAJORITY OF ONE, with Alec Guinness. Together, I learned to be a bit less uptight about such roles and to try and see them in the context of the times they were made.

This blogathon was a great idea. Thank you.

Hi there Jacqueline ~ I'm bringing up the rear here in the late shift, with my contribution to Paddy's blogathon. I talk about a Bette Davis movie Paddy covered: "MARKED WOMAN."

You can find it here at CineMaven's Essays from the Couch:
