The Mysterious Mr. Foster
8 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Norman Foster may not be a household name, but this brief documentary paints him as a "giant" and an "underdog". His acting and directing are covered, and we learn of his real name and birth place...

Foster's films, particularly with Charlie Chan and Mr. Moto, were made as B-movies, but are today remembered better than many of the A-movies. Foster, even without a budget, was able to write excellent scripts and was committed to authenticity. He did what he could (such as using stock footage) to try to make them respectful to the Orient.

After doing serials in the 1930s, it seems natural he would get handed such franchises as "Batman" and "Green Hornet" years later. And still, not a well known name, even amongst Batman fans.
