  13. Doomed to Die (1940) - Amazon Prime w/ Boris Karloff, Marjorie Reynolds and Grant Withers. Plus Henry Brandon. And still directed by William Nigh. A shipping tycoon is shot to death soon after his ocean liner suffers a disaster that lead to the loss of 400 lives. And the disappearance of a million+ dollars in Chinese bonds being smuggled for the Tong. And just after changing his will. And immediately after refusing the allow the son of his competitor from marrying his daughter. And, of course, inept Police Captain (and comic relief no. 1) Bill Street jumps to the easiest solution to his death. And, of course, intrepid girl reporter Bobbie Logan (and comic relief no. 2) doesn't buy it. And, of course, our hero detective James Lee Wong investigates the various trails of love, money and revenge and (somehow!) identifies the true solution. The fifth of six detective movies from Monogram Pictures featuring the aforementioned Mr. Wong. And the last with Boris Karloff in the main role. But "main role" feels like an overstatement as he doesn't even appear until almost 17 minutes into the movie which, for a movie which is only 68 minutes in length, is a significant chunk of time. And some of his scenes are poorly reused footage from earlier entries in this series. But he is still the main reason to see it. And, this being the last of this series with Boris Karloff, my ranking of these five movies are as follows: 1.) The Mystery of Mr. Wong (1939) - Second movie in series 2.) Mr. Wong in Chinatown (1939) - Third movie in series 3.) Mr. Wong, Detective (1938) - First movie in series 4.) Fatal Hour (1940) - Fourth movie in series 5.) Doomed to Die - Fifth movie in series Considering that bell curve, my expectations are low with respect to my eventual viewing of the sixth and final entry in this series, Phantom of Chinatown (1940), with Keye Luke in place of Boris Karloff.
  14. Oklahoma! (1955) Next: Carousel (1956) - A pair of musicals w/ Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones
  15. Neil (not Sean) Connery: O.K. Connery (aka Operation Kid Brother) (1967) The Body Stealers (1969) Mad Mission 3: Our Man from Bond Street (1984)
