Charlie Chan (Warner Oland) is coming to Egypt to investigate allegations of smuggling of archeological artefacts concerning archeologist Professor Arnold's (George Irving) expedition - only to find out the professor is no more, he has been killed and his body hidden in a sarcophagus. Shortly after, the professor's son (James Eagles) is killed as well, by a rare poison, and his daughter Carol (Pat Paterson) is drugged. With the help of Carol's fiancé Tom (Thomas Beck) though, Charlie finds out what whoever-it-is is after, a hidden treasure chamber in the tomb Professor Arnold had been investigating, and even though he cannot keep John from catching a (non-fatal) bullet or two, he has long figured out who is really behind all the killings - not the religious fanatic (Nigel De Brulier) who has attracted the police's suspicion, not the family doctor (Jameson Thomas) who has repeatedly tried to sabotage Chan's investigations, but professor Arnold's seemingly benign brother-in-law Thurston (Frank Conroy), who tried to get his hands on the hidden treasure even at the cost of lives - but in the end, Chan sees to it that justice prevails ...

A young Rita Hayworth (then named Rita Cansino) can be seen in an early role in this one, but while she looks gorgeous, she has no significance for the actual plot at all, while Stepin Fetchit provides the comic relief, but is pretty much reduced to a racial stereotype.

 

Mediocre entry in the Charlie Chan-series: Sure, the whole thing is far-fetched to the point of implausibility, convoluted enough that you're at times not often sure what's going on, and the killer gives himself away to the audience way too quickly by acting way too unsuspicious, but a certain light-footed approach sees to it that the whole thing still remains entertaining at least.
