Near the end of the movie Mr. Moto begins a fight with Bokor's bodyguard. The bodyguard lunges at Mr. Moto and takes the first swing with the sword. The bodyguard's sword breaks in half, but in the next shot they they continue this sword fight, but with no broken swords. See more »
I've only seen the first three Mr. Moto films at this point but this was easily the least of them so far. Mr. Moto (Peter Lorre) poses as an archaeologist in a Cambodian jungle to sabotage the anti-government plans being cooked up by leader Rajah Ali (J. Edward Bromberg). He is helped out by a female spy (Rochelle Hudson) who has "conveniently" crashed her own plane on the island. This one plays very much like an old Republic serial. Detracting much from whatever enjoyment there is here are two silly American newsreel photographers who work their way into the story, providing what I suppose they think is comic relief. ** out of ****
