worth watching for fans of the series.
10 October 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Monogram Pictures had a hit-or-miss record with the Chan series, but for fans of the characters and of Sidney Toler, Mantan Moreland and Benson Fong, "Dark Alibi" can make a rainy afternoon more enjoyable. To see Benson Fong in his best role, also watch "Flower Drum Song."
