Black Magic, later retitled Meeting at Midnight for television, is a 1944 mystery film starring Sidney Toler as Charlie Chan.


Charlie postpones his trip home to Honolulu to help with the investigation of murder involving Number One Daughter (Frances Chan) and an easily spooked chauffeur (Mantan Moreland).

Black Magic is notable for being an early film to feature the exposé of fraudulent Spirit Mediums employing fake spirits, voices and the use of trick spirit cabinets.
