Best remembered as "No. 1 Son", Lee Chan, in Warner Oland's Charlie Chan films of the 1930s.

Almost 40 years after he played "Lee Chan" to the Charlie Chans of Warner Oland and Roland Winters, he took a turn at playing Charlie Chan himself, providing his voice in the Hanna-Barbera animated CBS-TV series "The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan" (1972). Among those who provided the voices of his children were Jodie Foster and Robert Ito.
