Mr. Wong in Fatal Hour (1940)

April 25, 2011

4th in the Wong series this story involves smuggled jade which results in a dead detective leading Wong (Karloff) and Street (Withers) into an investigation leading to more deaths with Bobby (Reynolds) trying to get the scoop for her newspaper. Nigh (director) and Darling (screenplay) team up once again in this middle of the road entry into the series. I find it annoying when there is a lack of a soundtrack and this one was fairly sparse. Couple that with a lower than usual budget but a good screenplay and you have a very average entry. (**)
