Docks of New Orleans was Roland Winters’ second appearance as aphorism-spouting oriental sleuth Charlie Chan — and like the first (The Chinese Ring) the film was based on an earlier “Mr. Wong” series entry.

Roland Winters is totally unsuited for the role of Charlie Chan, but at least he seems to be having fun in the part.

Then the guy who invented the formula for the poison gas that the company is making but who was…
