As a fan, even connoisseur, of B and C movies, I think this one is very well done. The sets are especially impressive, and the detail -- especially the interiors -- are pretty amazing. Good story, good plot, even though the death weapon is a duplicate of "Charlie Chan in Egypt." Boris is enjoyable as Mr. Moto. The makeup artist is far less talented than the set designer; Boris' hair looks like it is lacquered to his skull. Still, you like him, and that's what counts. Grant Withers is too loud (vocally, that is) but gives an honest performance as a crabby, dim-witted police detective. John St.Polis is a standout as Roemer. Fun to watch and worth the time.
