Chinatown Squad (1935) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Lyle Talbot, Valerie Hobson, Hugh O'Connell, Andy Devine, E. Alyn

Warren

Directed by Murray Roth



Print: black/white

Runtime: 75 min.

Genre: mystery

Print Quality: B



Dore Schary, several years removed from his tenure as head of MGM,

was screenwriter for the modest Universal actioner Chinatown Squad.

Lyle Talbot plays Ted Lacey, a disgruntled ex-cop reduced to driving a

sightseeing bus in Chinatown. When a man who has been collecting

funds for the Chinese communist cause is murdered, Lacey leaps at the

opportunity to solve the case in hopes of getting his badge back. The

killing is tied in with some stolen airplanes -- and, this being Hollywood's

version of Chinatown, there's an abundance of sinister-looking suspects.

Eighteen-year-old Valerie Hobson is the pretty if antiseptic heroine. For

reasons best known to the folks at Universal, Chinatown Squad was

included in TV's "Shock Theatre" package, lumped together with the

studio's Frankenstein and Dracula pictures!
