Mr. Wong is a "harmless" Chinatown shopkeeper by day and relentless blood-thirsty pursuer of the Twelve Coins of Confucius by night. With possession of the coins, Mr. Wong will be supreme ruler of the Chinese province of Keelat, and his evil destiny will be fulfilled. A killing spree follows in dark and dangerous Chinatown as Wong gets control of 11 of the 12 coins. Reporter Jason Barton and his girl Peg are hot on his trail, but soon find themselves in serious trouble when they stumble onto Wong's headquarters.

Another fun outing for our favourite "Chinese" megalomaniac - and who better the Bela Lugosi so star as he searches for the legendary twelve coins of Confucius. One he has obtained these, he will rule a vast tract of his native homeland (China, that is - not Hunary). Unfortunately, for him, "Jay Barton" (Wallace Ford) has one of these coins and semis now in terrible danger... Given it's an hour, it packs in quite a lot - and so long as you can look beyond the obviously curious casting; it moves along apace with it's tongue firmly planted in it's cheek.
