Chan goes to Paris for a reunion with friends from World War I. There he investigates the murder of a munitions manufacturer who was supplying arms to the enemy. At the end Charlie preaches to us about the dangers of peace conferences. Written by

This is 20th Century Fox's one poor Chan film. It is slow moving and boring. It is dominated, not by Chan, but Harold Huber as a bumbling, and very annoying, French policeman. I enjoyed Mr. Huber in his other Chan films. But he is just terrible in this one. This is also the only time that Sidney Toler's Chan was not assisted by one of his offspring. It is also the only time that Toler's Chan goes to Europe. (Should have stayed home, Charlie!) The city of the title is Paris and reflects that the "City of Light" has been affected by the black out imposed by the coming of the Second World War. But it just isn't fun. Too bad.
