The Cuban Charlie Chan

"La Serpiente Roja" Primera película cubana sonora from Memoria de Cuba on Vimeo.

IMDB tells us: "A detective story which takes place in London, with Chinese investigator Chan Li Po, a very popular character of a Cuban radio series of the 30s and 40s. Written by Félix B. Caignet."

I'd love to see this whole film, based on this campy snippet.

The backstory, in Spanish.

There's no way this is a rip-off of Charlie Chan, is there?

What a trip. I wonder if this is considered politically incorrect there now.
