The book Charlie Chan is reading in the opening scene on the plane is "Romantic Moon" by Michael Shawn. See more »
As Chan's airplane approaches San Francisco, we briefly see a stock shot of the uncompleted eastern span of the Bay Bridge. The bridge opened more than two years before the Golden Gate International Exposition, the film's setting. See more »

Chief J.J. Kilvaine:
Well, Charlie, if this don't send me back to pounding pavement on Billy Goat Hill, I'm an eskimo!
Not necessary to take such icy view of situation.

found in this "treasure island" starring Sydney Toler.It is a 20th Century production, which makes it all worthwhile.The spirit world and seances are the backdrop for this mystery.There is a cast of some familiar faces including Cesar Romero.This film is certainly one of the better ones with a surprise ending as to the identity of the killer/blackmailer,Dr.Zodiac. Worth watching.
