I remember his movies well. Just as well as a Black comedian whose name my fog for brain can't recall doing a skit with his mouth out of synch with the dubbed dialog. A friend living in Singapore some years back saw them there shot silent and dubbed in 14 languages. He also was a record producer, a Chinese friend and his wife went to Kong Kong and she recorded an album there. She gave me a cassette copy. So you see, in a roundabout way I have a personal connection to this famous and great man. Farewell Mr. Run Run, so many miss you.

Chinese have the family name first.

CNN is slow on the draw. I heard about this on NPR a couple of weeks ago.

Oh well, I tried. CNN being slow on the draw gets shot down... again.
