Goofs

When the murdered Margret (Maria Perschy) is discovered lying on bed in her hotel room with her neck having been broken, we watch Commander Sanders (Rupert Davies) and Bob Mitchell (Bob Cummings) - after having examined Margret's corpse - in the foreground discussing their further proceedings to solve the crimes that have been committed so far in the movie. In the background we observe the dead body of Margret blinking with both her eyelids several times! A dead person surely can't do that. See more »

Five Tarnished Dragons
15 May 2012 | by girvsjointSee all my reviews

Unlike the other reviewers, I think the main reason to watch this film, is Robert Cummings, who for some strange reason preferred to bill himself as 'Bob' in the later years of his career! Always a smooth operator on screen, and in my all time top 5 or 6 'comedy' actors, I feel he must have realized early on that he was involved in somewhat of a 'turkey', and decided, wisely I think, to play the whole thing tongue in cheek! No matter what else is, or isn't going on around him, Mr. Cummings himself is always fascinating to watch! And the girls are all gorgeous, and the scenery is nice! It's a pity Cummings couldn't have had a better vehicle for his big screen swansong, but I think the secret of enjoying this film is simply not to take anything seriously!
