Charlie's visit to Paris, ostensibly a vacation, is really a mission to investigate a bond-forgery racket. But his agent, apache dancer Nardi is killed before she can tell him much. The case, complicated by a false murder accusation for banker's daughter Yvette, climaxes with a strange journey through the Paris sewers. Written by

This film was thought to have been lost for many years until a print was discovered in Czechoslovakia in the 1970s. After a number of showings in various revival cinemas throughout the USA, it was first telecast in the New York City area Saturday 12 August 1978 on WNET (Channel 13); See more »
Although all the action takes place in Paris, not only don't any of the characters speak French, none has even a trace of a French accent. See more »
It's the first movie that I see in the Charlie Chan's series. I must say that I liked it. It's a pretty good mystery taking place in Paris. Like other films of this genre, the answer to the puzzle is not known until the end. Like good old Charlie says in the movie: «Must turn many stones to find hiding place of snake»! The dance scene at the Singe Bleu is quite compelling.
Out of 100, I gave it 78.
