Nice and neat fun little film that blends laughs and suspense.
I just recently watched this film mainly I checked it out to see some early work of beauty Michelle Pfeiffer, yet aside from that this film has a pretty good connected plot and story true it's funny and a little far out still it blended suspense and feel good fun to make it an interesting watch. Plus "Charlie Chan: And the Curse of the Dragon Queen" has appearances from legends Angie Dickinson and Roddy McDowall.
The theme and plot of the story is connected to the past it involves the curse and work of an evil mysterious Dragon Queen(Angie Dickinson)who brought about a murder on the Chan family. Only this curse has never died she and the curse has followed the Chan family to the city of San Francisco, California. Never fear enter the great detective himself Charlie Chan(Peter Ustinov)who arrives to match skill and wits with his old rival the Dragon Queen. It's critical the protection must be given to Chan's klutzy grandson Lee Chan Jr.(Richard Hatch)and his beautiful wife to be Cordelia(the beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer)as these two young lovers must be safe.
Overall this film is full of laughs and along the way the chase is a feel good time and the beautiful Michelle even has a damsel in distress scene as she's tied up and gagged. Thru it all a secret murder mystery is revealed so the film has both style and substance. Nice little B movie film to watch it's fun and interesting.
