Storyline

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 Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

There is much mystery in the City of Lights
19 December 2004 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Charlie Chan goes to Paris, he says on a vacation, but is investigating the Lamartine bank (the richest and most prestigious bank in France) where several forged bonds have circulated across Europe. Nardi, one half of an Apache dance and Chan's Parisian contact, is killed just before he can get any information from her. Looking through Nardi's room, Chan finds a book of her notes, which point suspicion on Albert Dufresne, a worker in the bank. Dufresne is murdered by a mysterious beggar, Xavier Marcel and the blame is placed on Yvette Lamartine, daughter of the bank's president. Chan, son Lee, and Victor Descartes (Yvette's fiancé) must uncover the counterfeiting ring and discover who is disguising himself as Marcel. This is one of the better Chan's in the series, with plenty of mysterious goings-on throughout the film. Nice set locations in the film giving the audience feelings of the Parisian nightlife, dark alleys, and even sewer system. This is the first film to feature Keye Luke as number one son Lee, which gives Oland to play Chan as the fatherly genial type, which is an improvement over the previous entry, Charlie Chan in London. Rating, 8.
