I will assume you have seen Charlie Chan films. You either like them or don't. These are the first four with Sidney Toler. Production values are all high, and while not in the same league as Warner Oland, still they are very enjoyable. Here we have "...In Reno" an excellent reminder that the city of Reno Nevada use to mean Divorce. And with "...in the City of Darkness", while too much comic relief by Harold Huber as Insp. Spivak in place of No. 2 son Jimmy, the fact that this was made right before WW II makes this viewer feel strangely apocalyptic with watching this story unfold.
If your not a Chan fan, don't bother with these. If you are a Chan fan, you probably have these. If you can't make up your mind, buy them, you'll still have fun.
