STUDY: Charlie Chan 15

A Charlie Chan TV commercial for Volkswagen (circa mid-1968):

Take a look at a humorous TV commercial, made by Volkswagen to advertise its classic Beetle, circa 1968, featuring Marvin Miller as Charlie Chan.  This advertisement was doubtless made as an effort to capitalize on to the sudden upsurge in the detective’s popularity brought about by the release of the 20th Century-Fox Chan series and exhibition of these films at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
