Re: OUR CCF MONDAY EVENING CHAT AND FILM VIEWING FOR May 4: “Charlie Chan in Reno”
Yes, you are correct about an extinguished candle seen in "The Chinese Cat." It was not blown out, but symbolically snuffed by the killer!
Thank you for the reminder of this one! There was another instance of Charlie Chan himself putting out a candle, and that happens in "Charlie Chan in Paris" near the climax of the film as the killer approaches and is about to enter the secret room in the Paris sewer.
