IT'S NICE TO SEE BUSTER CRABBE IN A SUIT CHASING AFTER CRIMINALS INSTEAD OF FLYING AROUND ON A SPACESHIP,NOT THAT I DON'T LIKE HIM DOING THAT ALSO. THIS IS A ACTOR WHO TOOK HIS WORK SERIOUS,NOT THE GREATEST OF ACTORS BUT WHAT HE DID HE DID IT RIGHT.
IF YOU PURCHASE THIS SERIAL YOU WILL GET A EXCELLENT PRINT THAT IS MUCH MORE FUN TO WATCH. THIS SERIAL ALSO CO-STARS FRANCES ROBINSON WHO WAS ALSO IN A RE-MASTED SERIAL TIM TYLER'S LUCK SHE WAS A UNIVERSAL CONTRACT PLAYER WHO ALSO CAN BE SEEN IN TOWER OF LONDON (UNIVERSAL 1939).
THE ARTWORK ON THE BOX AND THE INSIDE ARE EXCELLENT. BEING A COLLECTOR OF SERIALS SINCE THE VHS CAME TO BE I'M PROUD TO ADD THIS TO MY COLLECTION.
The plot involves two million dollars in bonds, supplied by Russia to an unnamed country under siege and entrusted to an oriental importer, Wing Fu (Syril Delevanti) to be taken to the United States for the purchase of airplanes. Back in the U.S., "crack police agent" Red Barry is investigating a series of murders taking place in Chinatown. Wing Fu feels that while Red Barry could be a useful ally, he could also be a problem, because the purchase of warplanes is in violation of the United States' neutrality in the conflict. But there are other people after the bonds; underworld chieftain Quong Lee (Frank Lackteen), and a Russian dancer named Natacha (Edna Sedgwick) who claims the money is rightfully hers. Red Barry has problems of his own with the Police Commissioner (William Gould) who takes him off the Chinatown Murders in favor of bumbling British "scientific detective" Valentine Vane (Hugh Huntley). But with the help of his boss, Inspector Scott (Wade Boteler) and female newspaper reporter Mississippi (Frances Robinson) Red Barry continues his investigation of both the murders and the stolen bonds.
The story has a complicated bunch of characters, of more depth than usual for serial movies. There is no clear division between "good guys" and "bad guys" since those after the bonds are all operating outside the law, to varying degrees, and each employs some thugs to further their efforts.Read more ›
