Charlie Chan: The Shanghai Cobra is the 1945 chapter in the popular comedy crime serial, featuring everyone's favorite 'Asian' detective. In 1937, Dan Van Horn was arrested in Shanghai for a murder in which the bite of a cobra was implicated. Van Horn escaped, never to be heard from again, although it's known that his face was badly burned in an accident. It's now eight years later, and three employees of the Sixth National Bank have turned up dead, all identified as victims of the Cobra Killer. The bank contains stores of radium for laboratory and hospital use, and is the center of the entire skullduggery. Inspector Charlie Chan (Sidney Toler) is alternately aided and confounded by his assistants, Number Three Son Tommy (Benson Fong) and chauffeur Birmingham Brown (Mantan Moreland). Van Horn is eventually revealed to be bank guard John Adams, who with his undercover daughter Paula Webb, have trailed the real Cobra Killer to the United States in an attempt to clear his name.moreless
