Description by OLDIES.com:
Created by pulp writer Jack Boyle, Boston Blackie was a reformed thief who always found himself accused of crimes he had nothing to do with (think of him as a blue-collar Lone Wolf). Chester Morris played him in 14 fast-moving comedy-mysteries, and in this, the last of the series, Blackie is accused of murdering a Chinese laundry owner. With perennial nemeses Insp. Farraday and Sgt. Matthews on his tail, Blackie and sidekick The Runt are once again in a deadly race to clear themselves before their fortune cookies are permanently crumbled. Don't expect the typical Hollywood stereotypes to be trotted out for this one; there are some incredibly incisive and humorous observations about 1940s race relations wrapped into this comic adventure. Newly remastered.
In this final episode of the Boston Blackie mystery series, our hero and his side-kick find themselves accused of murder after they are seen exiting a Chinese laundry where the proprietor is soon found murdered. Blackie must find the real killers before he gets in real trouble. Action and mystery ensue.
