Audience Reviews for Mr. Wong, Detective

Lets See Boris Karloff as an Asian Detective, humm, no I liked him better in his horror roles, maybe its me. But this is coming from a Native American who grew up watching white European men play the part of most American Indians in most westerns prior to 1980. The least you could have done was glue his eyes back a little more. It was funny to see how Mr. Wong held his smoke, more like a German in war movies, were we stereo type when these films were made??? If you get it in a group I say go for it but as a single, naw stay away from it.
