Everything I Consume: Charlie Chan In Paris

This movie had it all, multiple killings, disguises, people lurking in the shadows, rocks thrown through windows with messages on them, secret passeges, you name it. Warner Oland is excellent as Chan and this movie marks the first appearence of the awesome Keye Luke as Lee Chan, aka Number One Son (by the forties they's be down to #3). Lots of entertainment packed into 71 minutes.

Interesting, at least to me, is that even though this movie is set in France and most of the characters are French no one affects a French accent. In fact, the only actor in the picture speaking with an accent is Oland.
