Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen

N.p. N.p., Circa 1981. Collection of three vintage studio still photographs from the 1981 film. Noted as 81-610 at the bottom right corner of the recto.

Based on the detective novel series created in 1925 by author Earl Derr Biggers. The final Charlie Chan film made in the US, released eight years after Daryl Duke's "The Return of Charlie Chan" in 1973, and the first (and last) entry to feature actor Peter Ustinov as the eponymous Honolulu detective. The film faced extensive backlash by Asian-American protesters, who found Chan to be an offensive, outdated stereotype.

Set and shot on location in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California.
