One MORE reason to watch this film!
2 August 2005 | by (Long Island, United States) – See all my reviews

Another reviewer has disparaged this film, indicating that P. L. has a small part and that HE is the sole reason to watch it.

Not true.

Rochelle Hudson is an important addition to this film. Her performance in this Mr. Moto movie is well worth watching. She is also one of the most beautiful actresses you're ever likely to see.

If this movie ever becomes available on DVD, I hope I learn of it--I would gladly purchase same.

On the basis chiefly of Rochelle Hudson's contributions, I would rate this film 3 1/2 stars out of 5--or 7 out of 10. Viewers who are real Rochelle Hudson fans might well give it a 9 or a 10.
