  • msmichel's rating of the film Doomed to Die

    Fifth entry in the Mr. Wong series finds Karloff (in his ridiculous oriental makeup) solving the murder of a shipping tycoon in a slim 64 minute runtime. Despite its blatant racism of the time in casting and content the Wong series offers some succinct pleasures in its studio's attempt to cash in on the more popular Charlie Chan films.
