This was a Wong routine murder mystery, none too well produced, which has as its principal saving grace the suave BORIS KARLOFF...as a master detective. Basically an ordinary story, its failure to impress is largely due to the elemental plot and the inconsistencies which figure. Karloff still made this a classic film series for viewers of many generations.
