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. 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 »

Charlie Chan In Paris was recently released on VHS and DVD in the UK and I was pleased I purchased a VHS copy.
Charlie Chan comes to Paris making out he is having a holiday but is actually over to investigate a forgery racket but also ends up investigating murders after two people are killed. With the help of his No 1 son, he gathers clues and the investigation takes them under Paris in the sewers and the culprit is caught at the end, in heavy disguise...
This mystery is atmospheric at times, especially the sewer scenes.
Charlie Chan is played well by Warner Oland. I'm not familiar with the rest of the cast though.
If you like a good old mystery, you will enjoy Charlie Chan In Paris. Great fun.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
