Charlie Chan: The Chinese Cat is a classic Charlie Chan mystery movie about a master chess player who is inexplicably murdered. When notable businessman and chess wizard Thomas P. Manning (Sam Flint) is found shot to death in his study, which is locked from the inside, the police are completely stumped and eventually give up. But when, several months later, a mystery novel by Dr. Paul Rebnik (Ian Keith) is published virtually incriminating Manning's wife Leah (Joan Woodbury) for the murder, she hires famed detective Charlie Chan (Sidney Toler) to investigate on his own and clear her name. Chan gets right on the case, enlisting the help of trusted assistants Birmingham Brown (Mantan Moreland) and #3 Son Tommy (Benson Fong) to get down to the matter. But what they uncover is a jewel smuggling ring that somehow is centered around a missing porcelain cat statue in Manning's office, with more questions every step of the way. As Chan and his men get closer to the truth, more people are killed, leading to an ultimate showdown in an empty house of mirrors. Phil Rosen directs this installment of the famous Charlie Chan film series.moreless
