Product Description

Peter Lorre stars in this classic crime thriller. In Port Said, a Japanese detective calling himself Mr Moto is abducted and killed. But the real Mr Moto (Lorre) has in fact faked his own death, leaving him free to investigate an international conspiracy involving two rogue secret agents in the employ of a foreign power, who plan to mine Port Said harbour and destroy a visiting French fleet. By carefully planting fake evidence, the traitorous agents hope to foment a war between Britain and France, a war that would be to the advantage of the nameless country they work for. Mr Moto poses as a local shopkeeper and goes undercover to apprehend the criminals before they can put their deadly plan into effect.

From the Back Cover

In Mr Moto’s Last Warning a man calling himself Mr Moto is abducted and murdered after disembarking from a ship at Port Said in Egypt. However, the real Mr Moto is already in Port Said to investigate a conspiracy to blow up the French fleet as it sails into Port Said and implicate the British governmentin order to provoke a diplomatic incident. Mr Moto has to tread carefully amongst the double agents, conspirators, innocents and even a ventriloquist’s doll so that he can prevent the outbreak of war. An absorbing and exciting film; this is definitely Lorre’s most successful outing as the Japanese policeman

Format: DVD
By now the Mr. Moto series was becoming no more than the Saturday matinee filler Peter Lorre knew it would be. The greatest interest in Mr. Moto's Last Warning lies in keeping track of how many deaths Mr. Moto will cause in the pursuit of his kind of justice. By my count it was a draw with the bad guys, with one ringer thrown in. Please note that elements of the plot are discussed.

We're in Egypt and an unknown country is plotting to create an incident involving the Suez Canal that will have France and Britain at each other's throats. A master criminal and his gang, taking orders from this nameless country, will set mines at the entrance of the Canal. When the French fleet starts to pass though...kablooie! False evidence will point to Britain. However, Kentaro Moto of the International Police has been working to expose this plot for weeks. He knows the master criminal is in fact Fabian the Great (Ricardo Cortez), a smooth, quick-thinking and ruthless individual posing as a ventriloquist at a seedy Egyptian music hall. It would be hard to decide which is worse, Fabian's utter lack of scruple or George Sanders' awful German accent. (He plays Eric Novel, who tends to show up too often at places he shouldn't be.) Moto quickly finds he is alone. Every time he thinks he can call for assistance, death gets in the way. Finally, with only a foolish Englishman, played to perfection by Robert Coote, to help, Moto prevails and world peace is insured for a few more weeks. (The movie was made in 1939)

Peter Lorre continues to do a fine job as Kentaro Moto. He gives Moto an interesting blend of innocence, shrewdness and ruthlessness. Ricardo Cortez, a great success as a leading man in the silent movies, was by now doing movies like this.

Format: DVD
Created by author John P. Marquand as a replacement for Charlie Chan in the pages of the Saturday Evening Post after the death of author Earl Derr Biggers, Mr. Moto's screen incarnations have suffered a similar fate to that of his honorable predecessor, rarely revived on television because of worries over political correctness - though as with Chan, Moto is always way ahead of the white characters.

Mr. Moto's Last Warning is more of a spy story than a thriller, seeing him in Cairo trying to find out just how ventriloquist Ricardo Cortez and his gang, George Sanders and and a dapper John Carradine among them, plan to set Britain and France against each other during forthcoming naval manoeuvres in the Suez Canal. It's another handsomely produced entry in the series - a Fox B-movie could look better than a Universal A-movie - with our hero indulging his penchant for disguises, playing down to western prejudices to throw white characters off their balance and, when that fails, the odd bit of judo, though the stunt doubling is a lot more noticeable this time round. He also manages to get a couple of associates and allies needlessly killed (Moto actively preventing one from removing incriminating evidence that leads to his murder owes more to particularly clumsy writing than logic), though he seems a bit more bothered by this than he would have been at the series' start. Robert Coote's silly ass travel writer is also along for comic relief, spending much of the film looking like Harold Lloyd in a sailor suit, though he's often a welcome presence rather than a distraction even if his role is largely unnecessary beyond fulfilling the need to give our hero someone to rescue that's usually reserved for a damsel in distress.

In MR. MOTO'S LAST WARNING the Japanese agent is in Egypt dueling with an enemy spy who is trying to destroy the French fleet while it travels through the Suez Canal. The enemy plan calls for responsibility for the incident to be assigned to the British.
Peter Lorre has the starring role of Mr. Moto for the sixth time. A strong supporting cast includes Ricardo Cortez, John Carradine, Teru Shimada, Virginia Field and George Sanders. The movie also goes by the title of MR. MOTO IN EGYPT.

Spoiler alert! Peter Lorre made an interesting and attractive character out of John P. Marquand's Japanese detective. The kind of man you underestimate until it's too late. This is one of the best in the series. Moto is saddled with an idiotic sidekick, but said sidekick manages to clown not too badly. The settings are seedy, the other characters intriguing, especially John Carradine in a white suit. The usually suave George Sanders is saddled with a terrible accent. Don't buy this a single, though - the transfer quality is terrible.
