Description by OLDIES.com:
Released in 1944 as Black Magic
, this "unusually absorbing" (Los Angeles Times)
mystery was celebrated on the revival circuit, making it one of the best-known films of the series! Filled with fun spiritualist gags, like levitating hankies and gamboling skeletons, Meeting at Midnight
is a rendezvous you'll want to experience again and again!
When Birmingham (Mantan Moreland) gets a job as a butler for the Bonner family, he doesn't know that they're con artists who specialize in trick seances. But things get really spooky when a murder occurs...and Charlie Chan's daughter Frances becomes a suspect! Charlie (Sidney Toler) surmises that nearly everybody has a motive -- but even he doesn't yet realize how dangerous these ghoulish swindlers really are!
In this chapter of the Charlie Chan saga, Charlie Chan (Sidney Toler) goes in hot pursuit of a killer, and ends up getting involved with magic and murder. Also available in the "Matinee Double Feature 7" set in this section.
