Dated, low-budget C-movie
12 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those little independent films made by Invincible Pictures at Universal Studios. This is copyrighted 1933, NOT '32. Chesterfield distributed it. It's about the Chinese labor smuggling racket. Grant Withers plays a newspaper editor who, while investigating the racket on his own, by happenstance runs across Lois Wilson, who is a failed writer about to commit suicide. He saves her, gives her a job as a reporter, and she tries to repay him by investigating the dangerous racket on her own. Her competition for the story is loudmouth fellow reporter Hal Price (the wan comic relief). The title character with the secrets is a leader in the smuggling racket. Add in the incredible coincidence that Wu Sin's partner is none other than Withers' fiancée' father (Robert Warrick), and you've got plenty of claptrap to follow. Famous Chinese actor Richard Loo is quite young and thin here, and plays a good guy. Overall, quite predictable, and loaded with bad acting and crummy dialogue. Revier (who plays Withers' fiancée) played a unlikeable character in Richard Thorpe's 'The King Murder' the year before.
