CHARLIE CHAN’S CHANCE (1932)

                                      

Made from BEHIND THAT CURTAIN.  Remade in 1929 as BEHIND THAT CURTAIN, a vehicle for Warner Baxter and Lois Mason (Charlie Chan had very little screen time and few lines late in the movie).  Remade in 1940 as MURDER OVER NEW YORK.

 

Warner Oland:  Charlie Chan

Alexander Kirkland:  John [R.] Douglas

H. B. Warner:  Inspector Fife

Marion Nixon:  Shirley Marlowe

James Kirkwood:  Inspector Flannery

Ralph Morgan:  Barry Kirk

James Todd:  Kenneth Dunnwood

Herbert Bunston:  Garrick Enderby

James Wang:  Kee Lin

Charles McNaughton:  Paradise

Edward Peil, Sr.:  Li Gung

 

[SCRIPT:]

 

When Chan and Fife are in the restaurant with Kee Lin, Kee Lin makes a joke in Chinese about a joke:  “You have heard the story about the mule who tried to come down from the attic on a ladder.”  Fife turns to Chan (who is laughing) and asks, “What is that?”  Chan says:  I will tell you later.

 

Sir Lionel Grey had been asking Jim Douglas, trying to trick him into telling where Shirley Marlowe lived and her name [that she was using at the time.]

Grey thought she knew where Alan Raleigh was and could testify against him.  If she didn’t, Guy would find her, take her back to England and try her as an accessory after the fact for shielding a murderer.

 

Chan and Mrs. Chan having new a new baby (# 11) in this one but not in Murder Over New York.

 

Sir Lionel Grey was asking Gloria Grahame about the masked Dancer at the Follies.

 

Shirley is the mask dancer.

 

Charlie waits outside her dressing room as chorus girls pass him saying:

            “Who ordered chop suey?”

            “No laundry, today.””

Chan sees their scanty costumes and says, “So I Notice.”

 

She left her husband 4 years before, the day after she discovered he was guilty of his Aunt’s death.

She knows his servant is Li Gung—In Murder Over New York, he is Ramaullah from India.

 

Li Gung has a cousin – Henry Li who lives at 1313 Lee Street.  Very little is known      about him.

 

Very little know about Li Gung except he spent time at 1313 Lee Street.

 

CHAN HAD EMPTIED HIS GUN SINCE HIS WIFE DIDN’T LIKE LOADED GUNS AROUND KIDS.

 

BONUS QUESTION:  What other movies involve Charlie with glass spheres of gas that kill?

Charlie Chan in Egypt, Murder Over New York, and The Chinese Ring. 

 

MURDER RATE:  Sir Lionel Grey by Dunwood, Chauffeur gassed in car, Li Gung  (Li Gung set a device to kill Chan but a black cat tripped it to set off and it killed Li Gung instead)

 

 

CHARLIE CHAN IN NEW FILM AT PARAMOUNT[1]
Warner Oland Again Stars As Sleuth of Earl Derr Biggers Story


A startling crime in one of New York’s sophisticated “pent-houses” starts off the adventures in “Charlie Chan’s Chance,” the new mystery-thriller opening today.
Warner Oland again has the charming role of Chan, and the other featured players include Linda Watkins, H.B. Warner, Marion Nixon, James Kirkwood and Alexander Kirkland.
A splendid program of short screen subjects rounds out the new program. Among these is a hilarious two-reel comedy, “On the Loose,” starring Zasu Pitts
and Thelma Todd; a Mickey Mouse cartoon, a new "Fishing Adventure," and the Paramount News.
