Gong Tong
7 July 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"An F.B.I. operative goes undercover to infiltrate a gang responsible for killing one of his fellow agents. Bearing an uncanny resemblance to the man suspected of being the killer, the agent succeeds in finding the leader of the murderous gang. Known as 'The Illustrious One', this Asian femme fatale controls her gang ruthlessly from the luxury of her space in the Oriental Hotel," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis. Scar-faced Grant Withers (as Ralph Dickson) stars in this silliness masquerading as a gumshoes verses Asians in San Francisco gangster picture. It isn't even remotely convincing. The highlight is the 1930s Los Angeles area location footage involving Mr. Withers and Dave O'Brien (Jerry Morgan) in a car pursuit. Villainess Evelyn Brent (as Carney), who is inserted into the chase, has some fun with her lines.

*** Daughter of the Tong (8/28/39) Raymond K. Johnson ~ Grant Withers, Evelyn Brent, Dave O'Brien
