I nice tribute from some friends
27 April 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Norman Foster isn't a guy you'd normally expect to see a documentary about because he did not generally direct "big name" films. Instead, his forte were B-movies, as he could write and direct these films at or under budget--no small feat considering how cheap the B's were supposed to be. However, despite these shortcomings, his B-films managed to look much nicer than the average B series film and were far more successful. His Charlie Chan and Mr. Moto films were among the best of the genre and it's not surprising that this film was included as a DVD extra for THE MYSTERIOUS MR. MOTO.

What is surprising, though are two things. First, that Foster had a very successful career with the advent of television--making most of the the very popular Disney shows of the 50s (such as "Davy Crockett"). Second, that everyone had such nice things to say about him--family, friends and business associates all agreeing he was a heck of a fella.

Overall, a better than average DVD extra and a fascinating look at a lesser-known director who actually did a lot in his long career.
