An Original Vintage Theatrical 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

The Fatal Hour, the 1940 William Nigh Asian detective crime mystery murder thriller ("Original story by Hugh Wiley") starring Boris Karloff (as Mr. Wong), Marjorie Reynolds, Grant Withers, Charles Trowbridge, Frank Puglia, and Richard Loo. Note that there was a character called "Mr. Wong" in the 1935 movie "The Mysterious Mr. Wong", and he was played by Bela Lugosi. In 1938, "Mr. Wong, Detective" was made, starring Boris Karloff in the title role, and this Mr. Wong was an Chinese detective and had no relationship to the earlier Bela Lugosi character (this was based on a series of "James Lee Wong" stories in Collier's Magazine written by Hugh Wiley). This proved popular, and there were four more movies with Karloff playing Mr. Wong in 1939 and 1940. In 1940, he left the role, and one more movie was made, "Phantom of Chinatown", starring Keye Luke in the lead role, but that was the last of the series (perhaps it was the loss of Karloff that ended the series, or perhaps 1940 was not a good time for U.S. movies with an Asian hero).
