Charlie Chan at the Race Track (1936) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Director Cameo (1)
The footage purporting to be the Melbourne Cup was not shot in Melbourne. The Flemington grandstand (1924), still standing, is different, as are the grounds, and horse races are conducted on grass in Australia, not on dirt.
