THE FATAL HOUR / Monogram Pictures - 1940

It's Fatal Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. In this mystery the crime fighting twosome of Captain Street and reporter Bobbie Logan bring in crime solving Chinese sleuth, Mr. Wong, to help solve the murder of Street's friend and fellow cop, Dan Grady. This was the fourth of six Monogram mysteries starring Boris as the very clever detective, Mr. Wong...

Eegah!! sent over this lil' soundclip from the movie for our enjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the acid vat, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... THE FATAL HOUR!

Bring in Boris as crime slueth, Mr. Wong. Captain Street wants a cool head when it comes to solving the strange case of the death of his friend, Dan Grady.

Mr. Wong goes to another Chinese merchant for some straight answers. Wong has the gift of noticing clues that others may miss.

The Neptune Club is the hangout for the local crime ring, the owner works for the mysterious Big Boss.

Reporter Bobbie Logan pops up in the back seat as Wong and Street are on their way to investigate another crime. You know, those crazy reporter dames!

Great shot!!

Captain Street simply hides behind the door as this unsuspecting crook shows him where they keep the valuables, in a safe behind the picture. How clever!

Then, the Captain's late to the show because he was flirting with this little cutie working in the hotel lobby.

Bobbie pulls a fast one by sticking a candle holder into the back of the Big Boss, who was ready to fill Captain Street and Mr. Wong full of lead!! Case closed...
