Watch Charlie Chan in London - Alternative Versions.
Of the first four Chan films in the Fox series, Charlie Chan Carries On
(1931), Charlie Chan's Chance (1932), and Charlie Chan's Greatest Case
(1933) have been lost; only the 1931 THE BLACK CAMEL remains to show
the series in its early developmental stage. By the time of CHARLIE
CHAN IN London the series has reached the standards that made it so
widely beloved, a neat mixture of comedy and mystery, good production
values, and solid acting.
As is typical of the Chan series, the cast is first rate, offering an
early glimpse of future Oscar-winner Ray Milland as well as a memorable
performance by character actor E.E. Clive, who graced such films of the
era as THE INVISIBLE MAN and DRACULA'S DAUGHTER. In this episode, Chan
has traveled to England to bring a criminal captured in Hawaii to
British justice--and is on the point of departure when he asked to
intervene in a notorious murder case. With a man already convicted,
Chan has but sixty-some hours to unmask the real killer before the
wrongly convicted Paul Gray (Douglas Walton) is sent to his death.
In some respects the film shows its era: it is very distinctly of the
early sound period, and the camera is static and the performances often
broad. But it captures all the essential elements of the Chan series as
it starred Warner Oland, and (like THE BLACK CAMEL before it) it very
specifically sets up Chan to use the racist attitudes of others to
crime-solving effect. Warner Oland's Chan, and to a lesser extent
Sidney Toler's Chan, would often encourage others to dismiss him as a
"stupid Chinaman" all the better to trick the killer into
carelessness--and the plot device is particularly apparent in the
earliest Chan films.
While CHARLIE CHAN IN London will never make a critic's short list of
great films, it is quite a bit of fun, and Chan fans will enjoy it.
Unfortunately, the film is not available on either VHS or DVD in the
United States, and since it is considered "politically incorrect" it is
rarely broadcast; Chan fans will have a hard time tracking it down.
