An X-ray machine reveals the presence of a corpse in an Egyptian sarcophagus. It is not that of the ancient high priest. Instead the body is that of the archaeologist who was thought to be on a trip to the Upper Nile, but is now found murdered. Written by

This, one of the early films, has charm, naivete, and atmosphere that the later ones lack. The King Tut discovery still had long reaching effects and people's interest. Of course, the other quality it possesses is Warner Oland, the first(well known) and best actor to portray Charlie Chan. The reference 'inscrutable' truly applies. Where the later portrayals, for many reasons, had become caricatures, and eventually cheap B-movie(2nd film) matinee 'fill-ins'.
