Charlie Chan in Paris (1935) This third in the surviving Charlie Chan franchise sees Inspector Chan (Warner Oland) not excited to see his #1 son, Lee (Keye Luke in his first Charlie Chan movie) joining him in the excitement of Paris . The chemistry between Oland and Luke is so good that they are brought back in subsequent movies, and when Oland finally passes away, and they bring in Sidney Toler into the Charlie Chan part, Keye Luke leaves the franchise. In this movie, Inspector Chan is meeting up with his undercover contact Nardi (Dorothy Appleby) who is posing as an apache dancer, to investigate forged bonds, but she's killed before telling him anything. Inspector Chan finds more clues in Nardi's room, pointing to folks in the Lamartine bank, including Yvette Lamartine (Mary Brian) the daughter of the bank president. Lee and Yvette's fiancé, Victor Descartes (Thomas Beck) are checking out other suspects. Naturally, we see our heros wondering around the typical (studio) streets and sewers of Paris.
A little above average Charlie Chan mystery, a good mystery, well acted and a nice blend of suspense, comedy and drama. The Paris setting is a plus. It is short, sweet and very enjoyable.
Goes along at a fairly good pace, but tends to slow a bit at times. Charlie has a lot of dumb sayings and seems almost too wise. Everyone else seems to have shit-for-brains compared to him. Not horrible, but not great.
