Charlie is the intended murder victim here, and he avoids death only by chance. To find the murderer (since, of course, murder does occur), Charlie must outguess Scotland Yard and New York City police.
John G. Blystone
Sir George hires Hillary Gatt to find out more about Eric who wants to marry Lois. Gatt is murdered and the couple, married, run off to India. Old friend John Beetham sympathizes with the bride who sees that her hubby is a liar and drunk. John and Lois fly to San Francisco. Eric shows up and tries to kill John, but Scotland Yard's Lt. Charlie Chan intervenes. Written by

First talkie appearance of Charlie Chan is the films sole interest.
Only one thing kept my interest throughout this film: the first talkie appearance of Charlie Chan. Unfortunately, he doesn't appear until towards the end, so you have to sit through this dull film. This is even more stilted than the usual early talkie. If you like Chan movies, then sure, watch this, but all others stay away.
