Charlie Chan Meeting at Midnight VHS Video Sidney Toler
It features Sidney Toler as Charlie Chan and Mantan Moreland is right there as needed for great comic relief. We also get to meet one of Charlie’s shrewder kids who is played by the talented Frances Chan.
THE STORY: Mantan Moreland replaces the current butler in a big spooky house where scam artists are running seances. Not long after he arrives, a seance takes place and it just so happens that Charlie Chan’s daughter is participating… and then a murder takes place during the seance. The man was shot by the infamous “disappearing bullet”! (How many urban legends have been launched from this idea, I cannot say). In any event, Charlie’s daughter becomes one of several suspects in the crime which is a caveat that the police use to twist Charlie’s arm a bit to get him to investigate the case.
The running time is 65 minutes
Actors: Sidney Toler, Mantan Moreland, Frances Chan, Joseph Crehan, Helen Beverly
