The prime suspect in the killings is a shady lady known as the Dragon Queen, but soon Chan's suspicions fall elsewhere. Among those at risk are Lee's maternal grandmother, Mrs. Lupowitz, and even though Charlie Chan's son is, as is usually the case, rarely accurate in reading clues, he has the full love and support of Cordelia, his beautiful fiancee.

    Critic Vincent Canby of The New York Timeswrote in his review: "Clive Donner's Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen, which opens today at the Cinerama I and other theaters, is a looselimbed, immensely good-natured entertainment that moves easily between parody and slapstick without ever doing damage to the memories of the character who, in the 1950's and 1960's, gained something of a following as a figure of camp." Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 5.5/10 with 5 critics responses. TV Guide gives Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen 0 stars out of 5 stars.
