When Charlie's old friend from Scotland Yard is murdered when they attend a police convention in New York, Chan picks up the case he was working on.
The method of murder in this film, poison gas contained inside a thin a glass globe, was previously used in one of the Mr. Wong films, "Mr. Wong, Detective (1938)," two years earlier; and three years before that in the Chan-series film "Charlie Chan in Egypt (1935)."
I'll never go on a case like this again without a gat.
Seemingly an hour or so after Drake's body is discovered in his apartment, Charlie gets a toxicology report over the telephone from the city morgue naming the specific poison that was in his body.
