Inspector Duff (Rafael Calvo) of Scotland Yard has to investigate the murder of a member of an American round-the-world-tour group headed by Doc Lofton (Julio Villarreal), but fails to find the killer and instead has to witness a second murder, that of a certain Decker (Carlos Diaz de Mendoza). He has Decker's wife flown in, who tells Duff she was once married to one Jim Maynard, but then left him for Decker and stole a suitcase of diamonds from him (which he had stolen himself by the way), and she suspects now that Maynard is a member of the tour group, out to have his revenge on her and (the already deceased) Decker. Before she can identify Maynard among the group though, she is shot dead herself ...

With no clues to go on, no evidence to hold any of them, Duff sees himself forced to let the tour group go, but is always in hot pursuit. Eventually, the group reaches Hawaii, which is where Duff is shot at and gravely injured, but luckily enough, he has told his friend Charlie Chan (Manuel Arbó) everything about the case before that, and Chan decides to carry on and accompany the group on their boat trip to San Francisco. As much as Chan investigates though, he is unable to come up with any definite proof, so he hands letters to all those he suspects claiming he knows they did it, to lack the real killer into a trap, and it works, with the real killer being someone (Martin Garralaga) who hasn't yet featured prominently in the proceedings ...


The Spanish language version of the film Charlie Chan Carries on, which is presumed to be lost - but if this film is any indication about the original'y quality, it might just as well remain lost: This is nothing but a boring murder mystery without any real climax, devoid of clues that could keep the audience guessing, and a culprit that is pulled out of the hat by a disappointingly simple stunt. What's more, at least this Spanish version looks as if it was made with little care for detail, like Manuel Arbó's makeup that seems to have been laid on in a hurry and that doesn't make him look all that Oriental, or his wife, who speaks Japanese when she's supposed to be Chinese.

In all, a rather neglectable rarity.
