2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on March 31 2008
Format: DVD
Charlie Chan in London is one my favorite movies in the series. The opening grips you when you discover that a young man is about to be executed for a murder he claims he didn't commit. Only his sister believes in his innocence, and all avenues of escape seem closed after the Home Secretary turns down her appeal. But she begs Charlie Chan to see what can be done in the remaining three days.

Charlie is about to leave London but changes his plans to help the young people. Arriving at an English country manor, Charlie must examine the setting to find out what really happened. Only by finding the real killer can the young man be saved.

It all looks pretty bleak until Charlie re-creates the crime and begins to pick up clues. A rattled murderer soon begins making mistakes.

The mystery is a hard one to solve, and you won't identify the killer much before Charlie does. The continual tolling of time adds real suspense and drama to the investigation.

One of the strengths of this movie is that excellent character actors are allowed to steal scenes, in the best tradition of 30's movies: A supercilious and suspicious butler wants to keep Charlie out of the house; a drunk and his wife provide humorous by plays making fun of English pretentiousness; and a not-too-bright police detective has trouble with Charlie's name and following what Charlie tells him.

Drue Leyton is solid in the role of Pamela Gray, sister of the accused man. Her leading man, Ray Milland, is somewhat weak in his role . . . not yet having developed into the suave, assured actor he later became. But it's fun to see Milland as a young actor.

The setting is well done.

After watching these movies,you will be coming up with alot of Chan aphorisms like that one...but probably much,much better!
This box set includes:
CHARLIE CHAN IN LONDON,CHARLIE CHAN IN PARIS,CHARLIE CHAN IN EGYPT,CHARLIE CHAN IN SHANGHAI and ERAN TRECE(Spanish w/ English subtitles)/"Charlie Chan Carries On").The latter film does not include Warner Oland in the lead but it is an interesting look at what might have been.Unfortunately the original English version has been lost,along with three other Oland Chans.
I haven't seen any of these films in at least 50 years but they have lost none of their charm and heart and that is in BIG part to Warner Oland himself.I have seen Oland,Toler and Winters each playing the famous detective.In my oppinion the latter two just tried hard to imitate Oland but fell far short of the mark.They didn't have the dignity,heart,warmth nor comportment the way Oland did.In fact I have seen very few actors immerse themselves in their characters as much as he did.I would even dare say that after a time the two almost became inseperable.I know relatively little of Warner Oland's career except that I know he had played Oriental parts in previous years and that there was at one stage a walk off of a film set by the actor and then his eventual return to Sweden.He was having personal problems,alot of it brought on by alcohol.By today's standards one might say he was burned out.In the end he never returned and died in his homeland.Tragic,for his family and the public,as we lost a very talented man that day in 1938.
I recall reading but never finishing a Derr Biggers Charlie Chan novel.The reason? I had watched a couple of Oland Chan's before hand.Big mistake.

I had only seen a couple of these films as a kid and remember enjoying them. As an adult it is clear they are "B" movies but that does not take away from their appeal. Charlie Chan is played in a very engaging way. It makes you feel like he could be a good friend of yours almost from the first minute you see him. The number one son role, played by Keye Luke, is entertaining as he uses vernacular American lingo in sharp contrast to Mr. Chan's staid and measured language. The plots are OK and intricate enough that you wonder how they will be solved. The supporting actors are mostly good, some of whom go on to be stars afterward with notables such as Rita Hayworth. I would compare these films in mood and character to the excellent Columbo TV series. Very cozy films to watch, almost as good as reading a good book by the fire.

Charlie Chan is the1930s USA Hercule Poirot. Although Charlie is an oriental (played by a Swede) he is respected as a professional, unlike members of the oriental community at the time. The restorations are excellent. No dust spots or other noticeable damage.
