Charlie Chan in Rio

Synopsis: Charlie and son Jimmy visit an exotic Rio nightclub in the company of local police chief Suoto in order to arrest nightclub chanteuse Lola Dean, whom Charlie believes killed her paramour a year earlier in Honolulu after discovering that he was married. Rather than cause a public scene, the always discreet Chan decides to wait until she gets home. By the time the minions of the law arrive, they find the singer has been stabbed to death, her jewels stolen, and a bevy of clues seemingly planted at the crime scene. Among the suspects are the singer's companion, an ex-husband, a Dean friend along with her boyfriend, an amateur sleuth, her rich playboy fiancée, a rival for his affections, a mind-reading mystic, and, of course, the butler.

Good evening, Miss Ellis.

Good evening, Mr. Kellogg.

- Armando, I'm expecting...

- Mrs. And Mrs. Reynolds are here already, sir.

Good! Joan and Ken

have beat us to it.

- How is Mrs. Reynolds behaving tonight, Armando?

- Very bad, senhor.

She's been drinking heavily, and they are

both quarreling something awful.

I can see we're going

to be in for it, Grace.

Leave it to littleJoanie to kill a party.

Hey, senhor. Bring me a drink.

- Make it a...

- Lemonade.

- Hello, Bill, Grace.

- Sit down. Take the weight off your feet.

- Bring on the grape juice, Armando.

- S, senhora.

Aren't you here a little early, Joan?

We'd have been here this morning

if Ken had had his way.

Something about this joint that he likes.

Can't figure it out. Can you, Grace?

Uh, no, I can't, Joan.

Oh, you can't.

I can. It's a little brunette package...

Ken's ex-sweetheart from New York. Lola Dean.

Excuse me. I'm going to the bar.

Make sure it's the bar,

not Lola's dressing room.

- Oh, now, Joanie, please...

- You're being very unfair.

Ken likes Lola,

but so does Bill and Clarke...

That's what's burning you...

Clarke Denton.

You'd turn inside out to get one

of your paws on Lola's boyfriend...

and the other on his father's millions.

Take off that mask.

You hate Lola as much as I do.

I think I shall have to be excused.

You don't want to go any more than Ken does

or I do. I came here to keep my eyes on Ken.

You came here with that excuse for a man

to watch Clarke, while Lola feeds them all bait.

- Where you going, Joanie?

- Ah!

- Hey, why don't you watch where you're going?

- Oh, I'm so sorry.

Thanks.

Mrs. Reynolds.

She's a frequent patron of this place.

Interesting problem in chemistry.

Sweet wine often turn nice woman sour.

Yes! That's very good, Senhor Chan.

Your son, Senhor Chan,

has the happy faculty...

of to combine business with pleasure.

Number two son behave about hot music...

like corn over hot fire... pops.

Have you ever seen the samba

danced before, Jimmy?

Have I?

I saw it in the States months ago.

- It's taken on pretty fast down here though.

- Yes, it has.

- They do it pretty good too.

- They should. It's one of our national dances.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't think.

Biggest mistakes in history

make by people who didn't think.

- I'm sorry.

- It's quite all right, Jimmy.

Gee, thanks, Cap.

Senhor Souto, please excuse

number two son's North American familiarity.

Expensive college education...

failed to teach offspring

correct manner...

of addressing honorable delegado...

or captain of police of Rio deJaneiro.

- Oh, Pop, I-I didn't...

- Understand. He didn't think.

Never mind, Jimmy.

As you North Americans say, is quite "okay. "

Thanks, Cap. I mean, Senhor Souto.

Say, could you get someone

to teach me how to swing that dance?

Oh, certainly.

Unfortunate, number two son

have no time to learn Brazilian samba.

Must finish business quickly.

Must arrest Lola Dean tonight.

- Don't look now.

- I won't.

But hurry, darling. Hurry.

You can take your hands down,

but keep your eyes closed.

- I can't wait.

- Don't be so nervous, Lola. You'll make me stick myself.

I know. It's a brooch.

- Now you've spoiled everything.

- Oh, Clarke.

It's gorgeous!

Oh, darling.

- What can I say?

- You know what I want you to say.

- Oh. What?

- Say yes.

- Oh, yes, yes, darling.

- Then we'll be married the first of the month.

- Oh, can't we make it any sooner than that?

- Wait a minute, honey.

I have a little missionary work

to do with the family first.

- Oh. You think they might object.
