Chan Calendar Date for December 4th

We have another Chan Calendar Date for December 4, 1931, today:

Fox Films released "Eran Trace."

It was the Spanish language version of "Charlie Chan Carries On" and starred Manuel Arbo as Charlie Chan.

It's good news and bad news. Many of us would love to get our hot little mittens on the original English version with Warner Oland but many of us can console ourselves with this one!

It does use the same sets and pretty much the same script, plus the addition of a party sequence not in the original. It would have been a shame not to with the presence of the Brazilian tenor, Raul Roulien, who would go on in Hollywood to make "Flying Down To Rio." (He gets to do another type of singing in that movie, the romantic "Orchids in the Moonlight.")
