Charlie Chan (Roland Winters) is called to the Golden Eye goldmine in Texas to protect its owner Manning (Forrest Taylor) and at the same time investigate a few irregularities. But even when he arrives in Texas, Manning has had a serious accident that left him bandaged all over his body, and a nun, sister Teresa (Evelyn Brent) is shielding him off against visitors. Plus, in the goldmine that seems to be exhausted and produce tons of gold at the same time, one witness after the next turns up - dead. Soon enough, Chan finds out that the mine is used as the centerpiece of a largescale goldsmuggling operation, the nun and Manning's foreman (Ralph Dunn) were running things on the ground, and the foreman's wife (Lois Austin) was doubling as Manning, who has long been bumped off (who could tell who was under the bandages, right?), but the head of the organisation was actually the fiancé (Bruce Kellogg) of Manning's daughter (Wanda McKay), a guy way too slick to nbot be guilty.

Victor Sen Yung and Mantan Moreland play their usual roles of Chan's son and driver respectively, while Tim Ryan plays a police inspector who has gone undercover posing as notorious drunkard.

 

By and large, it is common knowledge (or opinion, rather)  that the Charlie Chan-films made in the late 1940's with Roland Winters in the title role are the worst of the series - but while Roland Winters is indeed not one of the better Caucasian actors playing the Oriental detective, Golden Eye as such, despite being pretty predictable is not too bad a movie, a slick little murder mystery with shades of the Western genre that competently keeps its balance between comedy and drama for its about 70 minutes of running time. Sure, the film is no masterpiece, but neither are most other films of the Charlie Chan-series, right?
