Cinema: Also Showing


Charlie Chan at Monte Carlo (Twentieth Century-Fox). Warner Oland, still cinema's most dependably entertaining detective, liberally equipped with aphorisms in pidgin English and accompanied by his No. 1 son, Keye Luke, interrupts a vacation to find out who stole a million dollars in bonds.

Thank You, Mr. Moto (Twentieth Century-Fox). Another Oriental mystery man—shaven-skulled, pop-eyed Peter Lorre—looks for seven scrolls, the key to a vast treasure in the tomb of Genghis Khan. Assassinations, a kidnapping, the torture of a prince, hara-kiri and other interruptions confuse his efforts.
