Boston Blackie's Chinese Venture (1949)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

The final film in Columbia's Boston Blackie series once again features Chester Morris in the role of the former thief always having to work himself out of trouble. This time out he gets caught up in the murder of a Chinese man so he has to investigate, which leads to Chinatown and an illegal gambling plot. This was the final in the series and it's also the weakest as the film really doesn't contain any excitement or laughs, which were two things even the weaker films had. Even Morris comes off very tired looking in this film and Richard Lane too seems bored. Sid Tomack takes over the role of The Runt and is horrid in doing so. He's very obnoxious and doesn't contain any of the charm or wit of George E. Stone.
