The Black Camel
"Death is a black camel that kneels unbidden at every gate." These wise, cryptic words come courtesy of beloved movie sleuth Charlie Chan (Warner Oland), who investigates the murder of film starlet Sheila Fayne (Dorothy Revier) in this early installment from the Chan series. Horror icon Bela Lugosi co-stars as the renowned psychic Tarneverro, who confronts Fayne about her dark relationship history.
