Charlie Chan at the Race Track (1936)
Chan discovers a brutal gambling ring is out to rip off punters in the US by switching horses but who is behind it? There is no shortage of suspects among the other owners. Maybe the new owner of the horse Chester (Alan Dinehart)? Or rivals Bagley (Gavin Muir) or Fenton (Jonathan Hale)?
It is a complicated mystery and Charlie Chan is his usual self: relaxed (apart from when he is being shot at) and thoughtful investigation interspersed by pseudo and often bizarre "Chinese" proverbs.
