A treasure map in four pieces, the ghost of a hanged pirate, a talking parrot, and a ship full of red herrings complicate Charlie's search for a murderer on board a docked ship.
The character played by Lenita Lane "Anne Bonney" is the same name as a famous female pirate. She sailed with and was married to Calico Jack Rackham. Probably the misnamed Calico Jim in one of the paintings shown by Miss Nodbury to Charlie.
Hey, Pop, you're not gonna swallow that story, are you?
Charlie Chan: Swallow much, but digest little,
When Charlie is down below inspecting the hold for clues, the parrot disturbs him. The next scene shown at a slight upward angle, shows the open hatch and a view of the daylight sky, you can see one of the ships masts. Through out the movie the action takes place at night.
