Movie Info

Six months have passed since the mysterious murder of Thomas P. Manning (Sam Flint), an affluent man whose body was discovered in a locked room. The police have gotten no closer to solving the case or to uncovering the meaning of the particular chess pieces found in the victim's hand. Now, prompted by the release of a scandalous book about her father's demise, Leah Manning (Joan Woodbury) has hired eccentric detective Charlie Chan (Sidney Toler) to uncover the curious truth.

  • Mar 26, 2012
    Enjoyable and funny old school film from 1944 where Charlie Chan solves two case in one. The Murder of 3 men plus the recovery of a diamond stole a year prior. Mantan Moreland as Birmingham Brown adds all the enjoyment one needs for the night, he was a underrated actor and before his time. A movie for all old school Black and White Buffs 4 stars

    I watched these religeously as a kid on Saturday mornings and always wanted to be 'number 1 son'. Very silly but I loved them.
