    I had read that Chao-Li Chi was a dancer long before he was on Falcon Crest and I found a short film he made in 1948 called Meditation of Violence in which he is the sole performer and dances throughout. This YouTube video doesn't use the original music but it does appear to be the entire film. The man can throw some shapes!

    I wonder if this dance routine was done nowadays in a 'Got Talent' (America, Britain or Ireland) would he get the much sought after golden buzzer? I think Mr. Chi would give other contestants a run for their money.


    Angela has been asked by the FC attorney Phillip Erickson to marry him. She would like Chao-Li's opinion, (a scene from season 3, 1983 - '84):

    Angela: "He asked me to marry him again, last night."

    Chao-Li stands looking at her, uttering nothing.

    Angela: "Well! Do you have an opinion?"

    Chao-Li: "Yes! I think you know what the opinion is."

    Angela: "Oh I do but I would like to hear you express it!"

    Well at least we got to see Chao-Li doing Tai Chi in FC. A dance or two among the vineyards would have been nice though.
