The World War II years, filled with espionage and spies of all sorts, were perfect for the foibles of Charlie Chan (Sidney Toler). And in his 1944 venture, America's Number One Chinese detective is enlisted by the Secret Service to find the person who murdered the inventor of a top-secret device. Charlie takes his time as he investigates the case of a scientist murdered for devising a wayto protect US forces from German U-boats. Bedeviled by a gaggle of eccentrics, his nervous assistant (Mantan Moreland) and his exuberantly in-the-way offspring (Benson Fong and Marianne Quon),Charlie must decide which of a houseful of guests is actually the plan-purloining Master Spy!

It seems more like they had to make a film to fill some sort of contract and did not have an interesting story to tell.
There are large swaths of filler to pad out the movie that could easily have been eliminated had they had more story.
Patriotic of course as it was made in a time when Hollywood cared about the country and recognized its enemies.
If you are a Charlie Chan fan then you should watch this for the education. If you have not seen a Charlie Chan movie before then I suggest trying a different title.
