Description by OLDIES.com:

Boris Karloff returns to his role as the resourceful Oriental detective James Lee Wong in this fifth entry of the series. Shipping magnate Cyrus Wentworth is mysteriously shot in his office after his prize ocean liner is robbed and sunk. The obvious suspect is the son of his chief rival who is also engaged to Wentworth's daughter. Mr. Wong has different ideas and is determined to uncover the real culprit. Karloff's portrayal of Mr. Wong gave audiences a different side of the famed actor best known for his monster roles. Monogram Studios produced the series, created by Hugh Wiley and directed by William Nigh. Doomed to Die was Karloff's final appearance as Mr. Wong and features the return of Grant Withers as police captain Bill Street and Marjorie Reynolds as girl reporter Bobby Logan. Also of note is the appearance of character actor Henry Brandon (nee Kleinbach), best known for his role as the evil Barnaby in March of the Wooden Soldiers and as Fu Manchu in the Republic serial The Mask of Fu Manchu.
