Overlooked Films: Mr. Moto in DANGER ISLAND (Watch it Here!)

Legend has it that this, the sixth of eight Moto movies featuring Peter Lorre, was intended to be a Charlie Chan film, but was quickly rewritten following the death of Warner Oland. The Chan movie was to take place in Trinidad, while in this one the "danger island" is Puerto Rico.

"Mr. Moto's Gamble" was also planned as a Charlie Chan movie, and was changed to Moto when Warner Oland died. Which is probably why Keye Luke is in it as Lee Chan (Charlie's #1 son).

I enjoyed Peter Lorre in whatever.
