Trivia

Fox filmed a Spanish-language version of this film, using many of the same sets, using a Spanish-speaking cast, and was released under the title Eran trece (1931) (There Were Thirteen). This used many of the same pieces of stock footage as the English-language version and the script was expanded somewhat based on the English-language script. This Spanish-language version is available as a bonus feature on the DVD release of Charlie Chan in Shanghai (1935). See more »

Goofs

When they take the key out of the dead man's hand (it looks more like a woman's hand in the closeup), the hand has to be forced open but continues to open after the officer stops forcing it as the key and chain are removed. Subsequently, it assumes at least 4 different positions, 2 palm up, 2 palm down between shots. Lots of moving for a dead hand. See more »

Eran Trece
30 September 2018 | by appnzllr-1See all my reviews

The only version of "Charlie Chan Carries On" I've found is one on Youtube which stars Manuel Arbó and is called Eran Trece. It is labeled on Youtube as starring Warner Oland, but Mr. Oland is not in this version.
