Storyline

An Eastern potentate, the Rajah of Bandor (Charles Lung), and his American bride (Sue Casey), are robbed of a fortune in jewels on the Riviera, by a quartet of thieves led by Otto Von Herzen (Stephen Bekassy). The gang flees to Hong Kong, followed by Charles Reeves (Robin Hughes), British insurance investigator, and his sister, Susan ('Lois Hall' )qv)). Bill Whitfield (Warren Douglas), a none-too-bright American entrepreneur, gets involved with Stella Strutzenbacher (June Vincent), a flashy and stylish member of Herr Von Herzen's gang. The gang, already riddled with dissension, are easy pickings for Whitfield, Charles and Susan to capture and recover the Rajah's jewels. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Warren Douglas and Lois Hall tangle with femme fatale June Vincent
8 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To complete a doubleheader, I took in another Republic rather short feature, "Secrets of Monte Carlo" (1951), a crime noir. It should have been titled "Secrets of Hong Kong" because most of the action occurs there. The leads are Warren Douglas, Lois Hall and June Vincent, but the cast is capable all the way around. The story is about a jewel theft by a ring of 4, which includes Vincent, 2 thugs, and Stephen Bekassy posing as Vincent's husband at times. Hall's brother, Robin Hughes, also enters the story as the insurance man trying to recover the stolen jewels.

Douglas maintains a sense of humor throughout, despite being framed and facing several other obstacles. One of Ms. Vincent's best parts was in the classic noir "Black Angel" (1946). This is quite a few steps down in movie quality, but she does have a substantial part and it's good to see her stretch out in the role and take several choruses, so to speak.

This is a watchable and entertaining movie.
