Audience Reviews for Charlie Chan in London


Charlie Chan in London (1934)

This is one of the first surviving Charlie Chan movies with Swedish actor Warner Oland playing Inspector Charlie Chan. The other movies, Charlie Chan Carrie On (1931), Charlie Chan's Chance (1932), Charlie Chan's Greatest Case (1933) and Charlie Chan's Courage (1934) are forever lost to us.

Charlie Chan has been a racist stereotype, but the author, Earl Derr Biggers took the Charlie Chan character based on an actual Hawaiian police detective, and although Oland is playing in "Yellow Face" he is considered the better Charlie Chans in the franchise.

Hugh Gray (Douglas Walton) is nervously staying in Death Row while his Sister Pamela (Drue Leyton) is anxiously trying to get a stay of execution with her fiancee, Neil Howard (Ray Milland) and Geoffrey Richmond (Alan Mowbray), who are talking to anyone who will listen to them, without success.

Then Inspector Chan shows up in town, and is asked to see what he can come up with. Chan goes to Geoffrey Richmond's mansion during fox hunting season to get all of the suspects together to re-inact the crime, while time is running out.
