Summary
  • The black camel: When beautiful starlet Shelah Fane is murdered in Hawaii, suspicion points to a psychic advisor with a spirited nature. But when Chan uncovers a link to the unsolved murder of screen heartthrob Denny Mayo, the Chinese supersleuth soon discovers that, in Hollywood, fame can be murder
  • Charlie Chan on Broadway: A New York nightclub gal is turning from singer to canary-- with a tell-all diary about her mobster ex-boyfriend. But when she winds up breaking more than a leg and Chan's Number One Son is accused of the murder, Charlie is determined to unmask the culprit-- even if it brings down the house
  • Charlie Chan at Monte Carlo: A vacation on the Riviera turns into a long-shot murder investigation for Charlie Chan and his Number One Son when a casino messenger ends up dead-- and $1,000,000 winds up missing. But when Chan uncovers a nefarious blackmail plot, along with a second murder victim, he begins to suspect that in Monte Carlo lady luck can be a real killer. Warner Oland's last appearance as Charlie Chan
  • Charlie Chan's secret: When fearless flatfoot Charlie Chan sets out to locate the missing beneficiary to an immense fortune, he finds himself in the middle of a deadly family feud. But when the long-lost heir turns up alive--just in time to be murdered--Chan hatches an unearthly scheme to catch the killer and lay the whole mystery to rest
