1965 Italian gothic horror movie about an Italian castle owner who is possessed by an evil spirit of its sado-masochistic past when a group of models come to use his property for a special photo shoot.
This was Sidney Toler’s final film and his final one as Charlie Chan. Striken with cancer during his last few films, he was so physically weak during filming that he could hardly walk or say his lines coherently.
Three men are convicted of bank robbery, the main evidence against them being that their fingerprints were found at the scene. However, Charlie Chan believes them to be innocent, and his investigation reveals that they are indeed innocent and that their fingerprints were forged and planted in the prison files to frame them. Charlie sets out to uncover the real bank robbers.
While on his way to Australia on an unrelated case, Charlie Chan investigates two murders involving “hot money” that occur aboard ship.
