Chan Actors Haunt Museum!
What a perfect movie for Halloween! Charlie Chan has hidden rooms (for stashing people who aren't really there), crazy caretakers, radio technicians with lousy techniques, fires that don't burn and electric chairs that'll heat up stew for dinner!
To aid and abet Charlie in this little delight are:
Sidney Toler: Charlie Chan
Victor Sen Yung (as Sen Yung): Jimmy Chan
C. Henry Gordon: Dr. Cream
Marc Lawrence: Steve McBirney
Joan Valerie: Lily Latimer
Marguerite Chapman: Mary Bolton
Ted Osborne (as Ted Osborn): Tom Agnew
Michael Visaroff: Dr. Otto Von Brom
Hilda Vaughn: Mrs. Joe Rock
Charles Wagenheim: Willie Fern
Archie Twitchell: Carter Lane
Eddie Marr: Grenock
Joe King: Inspector O'Matthews
Harold Goodwin: Edwards
Stanley Blyestone: Bailiff (uncredited)
Jimmy Conlin: (uncredited)
Charles Trowbridge: Judge (uncredited)
Emmett Vogan: Prosecuting Attorney (uncredited)
Today's recommended movie is one with Peter Lorre: You'll Find Out!
Peter Lorre shares screen--and scream--time with Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi . . . plus Kay Kyser and his orchestra, featuring Ginny Sims.
It's not only a good "Old Dark House" mystery but it works both as a spoof of the genre plus as a spoof of the old radio game shows like Kyser's Kollege of Musical Knowledge.
Definitely a keeper for anytime of the year but especially at Halloween!
