Charlie Chan: Murder Over New York Reviews
January 20, 2012
Another great Charlie Chan Film, this one is about the sabotage of a airplane that's being built for the USA government. Like all the Chan films with Toler in it not only is there mystery but comedy throughout. This film has a guess appearance of Shemp from the Three Stooges. Supposed to be in New York, but when at the airport landing in NY you see mountains in background. Doubt that any off this film was actually taken in NY. Still worth 3 1/2 stars

Solid (but with no frills) entry in the long running Charlie Chan series, falling into the admittedly lesser half of the serial featuring Sidney Toler and lower budgets. Charlie is visiting a police convention in New York and Number Two Son Jimmy tags along. This time, the case to crack is one of sabotage and as usual there are a number of murders and a number of suspects. As is also typical, some of these suspects are easily confused - nevertheless, Charlie catches the right one! Shemp Howard appears in a bit part as a phony "East Indian!"
