Charles Starrett -- still looking for the right role
6 August 2009 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Charles Starrett seemed destined for great things after the release of "The Mask of Fu Manchu." So tall, so handsome, so well-built. No wonder Fu Manchu's daughter (played by Myrna Loy) nearly had an orgasm while watching his bare torso writhe under the lash! However, although Starrett kept busy after "Fu Manchu," filming several movies every year, none of his parts seemed to lift him out of the "lightweight leading man" category and he soon drifted into a series of popular but undistinguished B-westerns. "What Price Crime" -- there is no "?" in the title -- comes toward the end of his leading-man period and it's typical of his work at the time: brisk, efficient, forgettable. In this effort he plays a G-man who goes undercover as a boxer in order to ingratiate himself with a nightclub owner, (and possible gangster), who wishes to become a fight promoter. There's an extended boxing sequence in the movie which gives Starrett a chance to appear bare-chested and sweaty, but unfortunately, he's not posed or photographed to make maximum use of his "beefcake" appeal. The rest of the movie seems shrewdly designed to appeal both to men, who are provided with the crime and boxing angles, and to women, who might enjoy the nightclub scenes as well as the romantic subplot. (Undercover G-man falls in love with the sister of the nightclub owner.) The overall result, even after the passage of some 75 years, remains quite watchable but you still get a sense of Charles Starrett's stardom slowly slipping away.
