Misguided effort to revive the Chan series.
16 April 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This TV movie from the early 70's was a misguided effort to revive the Charlie Chan film series. It fails on every count. It is needlessly complicated. And it is dated in a tacky, rather than nostalgic, way--unlike the classic Chans from the 30's and early 40's, which hold up. Don't waste your time unless you are an absolute Chan fanatic. Your time would be better spent watching "Charlie Chan at Treasure Island" or "Charlie Chan at the Opera", or any of the Fox Chan films. Even the Monogram Chan films are better than this one!
