Movie Info

Having taken up residence in India with her abhorrent new husband, a wealthy woman plots to return to America with an old lover, leading to her jealous mate's near-murderous revenge until a climactic intervention by famed detective Charlie Chan. Crude production was the Chan character's first appearance in a talkie.
