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>

Another Oland Chan Classic!
19 April 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This is another Warner Oland Charlie Chan classic! This film was considered lost for many years until it was re-discovered in the late 70's. Thank goodness it was found as it is one of the best of the series. It has everything--a great performance by Oland in the title role; the introduction of Keye Luke as Lee Chan; an ingenius mystery; loads of atmosphere; and strong supporting players. There is even an apache dance for added local color. And, as Chan says, 'Many strange crimes committed in the sewers of Paris!" See this one again and again!
