The car in "Charlie Chan at the Olympics" is a 1927 Hibbard & Darrin Hispano-Suiza H6B 'Sedanca de Ville' which was made for James Oviatt, Los Angeles's "haberdasher to the stars". Oviatt began renting his car to movie studios (and, for a time, to Katharine Hepburn) after 1930. It was prominently featured in the 1932 movie "Grand Hotel", and also appeared in "Arsène Lupin" (1932), "Berkeley Square" (1933), and "Charlie Chan in Paris" (1935), among others.

(By 1937, Oviatt had sold the car to either a movie studio or a car rental agency, which removed its rooftop luggage rack.)
