Description

Trailer for the third of eight "Mr. Moto" films starring Peter Lorre, MR. MOTO'S GAMBLE. Per IMDB: Begun as a Charlie Chan film (CHARLIE CHAN AT RINGSIDE), but upon difficulties between 20th Century-Fox and Chan star Warner Oland, the script was hastily rewritten to accommodate Fox's other Asian sleuth, Mr. Moto. The presence of Chan's son Lee (Keye Luke) is evidence of the grafting of one movie onto another series. Though it has been reported that Oland's death was the cause for this change from Chan to Moto, it is not the case. This film was released theatrically on 3/25/38, and Oland did not die until August 6th of that same year. Subscribe to Captain Bjou's channel!! More vintage videos are added almost daily!!
