Audience Reviews for The Chinese Cat

  • 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.
