Happy Birthday, Victor

Sen Yung, who later went by Victor Sen Yung, was born today in 1915 in San Francisco. He began by playing Number Two Son - Jimmy - with Sidney Toler in the Charlie Chan movies. After a break to serve in the USAF in WWII, he returned to Hollywood and Chan, playing Jimmy in the last Sidney Toler movies and then moving to the Roland Winters ones, where (confusingly) he played Tommy (who'd been played by Benson Fong in the Tolers...). After Chan, he continued to work in Hollywood and television, where he's probably best known as Hop Sing on Bonanza though he made quite a few other movies.
