Watch Castle in the Desert - Alternative Versions.
Lucy Manderley is the obvious suspect when two guests are seemingly
murdered at Manderley Castle, located in the Mojave Desert. Her husband
Paul is a mysterious recluse who stands to lose his $20 million dollar
estate if it can be proved he is mentally unfit.
Charlie Chan has a lot to piece together in this brisk mystery. Number
Two Son Jimmy Chan is on leave from the army to help out his "Pop". If
at all possible, try to view the Chan films in the order that they were
released, the continuity is amazing. It was in the prior "Charlie Chan
in Rio" film that Jimmy received his military papers.
Ethel Griffies and Milton Parsons are on hand from "Dead Men Tell" and
perform admirably, particularly Ms. Griffies as the amazingly accurate
psychic Madame Saturna - "The stars never lie".
The funniest line in the film comes from Sidney Toler's Chan character,
responding to son Jimmy's choice of a suit of armor for a disguise -
"What has canned outpost observed?" My compliments to the writer of
that line, I can't get it out of my head!
Keep an eye out at the hotel stop where Charlie boards his ride for
Manderley Castle, the sign overhead states "Rooms 50 cents". Better get
an early reservation!
This is an enjoyable film with a fine cast, and well worth your time.
Give it a try.
