Audience Reviews for Murder over New York


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
