Mark Lawrence

MARC LAWRENCE (1910-2005), born Max Goldsmith, was the ultimate gangster and was still playing hoods in his eighth decade in films.

Charlie Chan at the Wax Museum (1940)

Haven't you seen Charlie Chan at the Wax Museum (1940)? - one of several Chan pictures featuring Lawrence.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Hold That Ghost (1941) - one of Abbott & Costello's best movies.
This Gun For Hire (1942) - with Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake
Key Largo (1948) - with Bogie & Bacall and Eddie Robinson.
The Man With The Golden Gun (1974) - my personal favorite of the Roger Moore James Bond pictures.
