Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This attempted revival of Earl Derr Biggers's insightful Asian sleuth sees Wild Wild West star Ross Martin assuming the title role. It's not much of a mystery, and the identity of the killer of a Greek shipping tycoon is very quickly made obvious. But it's the playful tone that's most injurious, and Martin's frivolous perfomance leaves you longing for previous stars Warner Oland, Sidney Toler or even Roland Winters.
