Of the five Warner Oland Charlie Chan films based on the original Earl Derr Biggers novels, only this one still survives. The other four are believed to have been lost in one of two fires, one in the 1930s and the other in the 1960s. See more »
The knife thrown at Chan when he discovers the scratches under the table couldn't possibly have come from the direction it is thrown from. See more »

As an avid Charlie Chan film buff..i,ve managed over the years to
obtain all of the "feature films"..The Black Camel is the earliest of all of the surviving films with Warner Oland portraying the great oriental slueth. This particular film was shot on location in Honolulu and is very entertaining..It also features Bela Lugosi as the fortune teller..Tarneverro..A fast moving story and a great cast of characters make this a "must have" for classic film buffs!
