Charlie Chan’s Secret (1936) – [Public Domain Movie]

Charlie Chan's SecretDirected by Gordon Wiles, starring Warner Oland, Rosina Lawrence and Charles Quigley. An ocean liner sinks off Honolulu and Allen Colby, heir to millions, is presumed dead…but local sleuth Charlie Chan is not so sure, and flies to San Francisco to investigate further. Somehow, the missing Colby is there ahead of him…but is knifed in the back before seeing anyone. Further events revolve around spiritualist Mrs. Lowell, her family of suspicious characters, and the spooky, untenanted Colby mansion, where the body turns up during a seance!

    I don’t think this is a public domain movie. I believe Fox still owns it.

    I don’t know who posted the movie to Internet Archive, but I don’t think they keep a close watch on what is being posted there. I did a quick check and the film does not seem to have been available on home video from anyone except 20th Century-Fox.
