Dark Alibi (1946)



Reviews and Comments

The Charlie Chan films really started going downhill when the mystery became secondary to showing Birmingham Brown (Mantan Moreland) getting scared. The same jokes are recycled ad nauseum in this poorly constructed series entry -- why is there focus on jokes in a Chan film, anyway? -- and the only mystery is what the mystery is. There's some sort of nonsense about forged fingerprints, which would make an interesting element to a mystery but isn't enough to carry one.
