Charlie Chan (Warner Oland) has come to Paris to investigate a case of forged bonds, but before you know it, his informer, a dancer (Dorothy Appleby), is murdered on stage, and there are no suspects - at least not officially, Chan though was quick to notice a suspicious beggar on the scene of the crime.

While Chan keeps on investigating, soon aided by his number one son (Keye Luke), a second murder happens, Dufresne (John Miljan) an employee of the bank at the center of Chan's investigations, who was apparently shot by his ex Yvette (Mary Brian), the daughter of the same bank's owner (Henry Kolker) - though Chan begs to differ, for two reasons: a) the two murders are obviously linked, and yet Chan knows Yvette had nothing to do with the death of the dancer, and b) the beggar was seen near the scene of the crime again.

Eventually, Chan picks up the trail of sketch artist Max (Erik Rhodes), whose involvement in the murders and the forgery of the bonds he is soon able to prove, then he pays a visit to the beggars home, to find a workshop for forging bonds - and he is almost killed by the beggar, whom he defeats in a shootout and in the end reveals to be no other than Latouche (Murrray Kinnell), manager of the bank.

But, you may ask, Latouche was seen together with the beggar in earlier scenes, so how can he be the beggar?

Truth is, Latouche and Max were in this together and have shared the beggar's costume to divert suspicion from themselves and at the same time create an artificial culprit - and it almost worked, too ...

 

Nice murder mystery, but in all pretty much your typical series movie.

By the way, Keye Luke's first appearance as Charlie Chan's number one son Lee, who would soon become a beloved fixture of the series (until Warner Oland's death that is). He is not half as klutzy (and funny) as in later entries of the series though and is allowed to do only half as much.
