Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: Charlie Chan (Sidney Toler) senses a murder when his friend suddenly dies on a flight from Honolulu to Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay.

Kitty Cameo: In the course of his investigation, Charlie Chan approaches the home of a noted mystique known as Zodiac. As he approaches the mansion, a black cat is seen sitting on a windowsill with a man looking out from behind the curtains.

Later Charlie Chan approaches the house again. This time the black cat crosses his path and disappears.
