Storyline

After receiving congratulations from the Home Secretary for solving his most recent case, Charlie is sought out by Pamela Gray, a beautiful but desperate young socialite whose brother Paul awaits execution for the murder of a weapons inventor. She is so convinced of his innocence that she becomes distraught when she overhears Neil Howard, her brother's lawyer and her fiancee, confide to the detective his belief in his client's guilt. Angered at this disclosure, she returns his ring and breaks off the engagement. Although the execution will take place in 65 hours, Charlie pledges to expose the murderer. All potential suspects are reassembled in the country mansion of family friend Geoffrey Richmond, where the murder took place, as Charlie tries to expose the real murderer before time runs out.

Quotes

Home Secretary Sir Lionel Bashford: It's remarkable, Mr. Chan, how you ever suspected Barstow. He puts up an excellent front.
Charlie Chan: Front seldom tell truth. To know occupants of house, always look in backyard.
Home Secretary Sir Lionel Bashford: Provided there is one.
Charlie Chan: Excuse. Every front has back and little things tell story - even in this room.

No London fog here....
2 July 2000 | by (Panama City, Panama) – See all my reviews

"Contradiction please." Warner Oland is clearly at the top of his game here as he attempts to save an innocent man from the gallows with only hours to spare.Truly one of the better films in this series with the Swedish actor.He is surrounded by a unique cast of English characters.There are a couple of amusing moments with Chan climbing through a window and crawling from beneath a desk in what otherwise is a serious "whodunit." Really well done and a must for a Chan fan.
