Mr. Wong in Chinatown 2002 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Boris Karloff must have been one of the nicest gentlemen in Hollywood during these early crazy days. It’s so wonderful to see him in less makeup and not having to speak in a fractured Chinese accent. His character is very kind and very intelligent. I would like to find some of the old “Collier’s” magazine stories that the movies were based on to see how they adapted the character to film. The movies were also made with well-spoken Chinese actors, only a few of the men servants spoke with a fratured English, but I work with many heavy accented folks who have lived in the US for over 40 years. The characters weren’t too drippy and the plot line was plausible. The times didn’t call for lots of gore, so you won’t see blood oozing all over as in todays films. I intend to complete the “Mr. Wong” series as soon as I can.
