I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. It is alittle on the talky side, but it's still an enjoyable mystery.
As essayed by Boris Karloff, Mr. Wong is that true rarity of movie Asian characters. He is not in the least bit a racist sterotype. He is smart, well educated, very well-spoken, and someone the police rely on quite a bit.
As is the case with every Alpha Video release that I have purchased thus far, the quality of the source material is very good, although there are a few minor film scratches. Overall, a very good transfer. The only negative is the total lack of extra features. But then, it's a steal at it's suggested retail price.
I plan on adding the rest of the films in this series to my collection.
