Spies in Egypt
This motion picture is the sixth is a series of films involving Mr. Moto, a Chinese International Policeman, who solves crimes and is involved in international intrigue. The intrepid sleuth, Kanarto Moto, is played by the famous star, Peter Lorre.
In this episode, an unnamed foreign government is trying to lure England and France into fighting each other and starting a second world war. England is guarding the Suez Canal which passes through Egypt from the Mediterranean Sea at Port Said to the Red Sea. It provides a vital link from Europe to India and the Far East.
A large fleet of French naval ships is scheduled to pass through (not throught) the canal in a few days. A group of terrorists is planting underwater mines at the entrance to the canal (not in the canal) to blow up the French fleet.
Mr. Moto is already in Port Said. He knows that something is going to happen, but doesn’t know what or by whom. He has a friend who pretends to be him. Shortly after the pretend Mr Moto reaches Port Said, the conspirators mistakenly murder him, and so believe that they have killed the great Mr. Moto. A British Intelligence Officer has infiltrated the group of conspirators and is also searching for details of the plot to blow up the French fleet. He is recognized by Mr. Moto and they decide to work together to stop the conspirators.

The question that I am asked most often is whether these movies are really public domain, or am I sharing movies that are still copyrighted and owned by movie studios and independent producers. Some folk believe that I am clever enough to share movies still owned by studios and independent producers without them knowing, but that would not be 'clever' . . . . merely 'stupid.' The first month that I started this web site I uploaded the stack of movies that I had on hand that I believed were public domain. Within days, when only a handful of visitors found my site, a movie studio contacted me and let me know that a couple of their copyrighted movies were among my uploads. I quickly apologized and removed them, and I started learning how to research copyright office records instead of taking the word of movie bloggers. To guarantee that I don't make a mistake, and encourage any studio or producer to correct any mistake that I might make, I do not hide the files with cryptic file names like movie pirates do, and I do not host the movies in a small offshore nation to prevent movie studios from finding either me or the movies. Every movie is named and dated and very easy for motion picture studios to search for and find . . . . . And believe me, they are constantly watching. You may have only discovered this web site recently, but all of the movie studios watch my listings very closely, and have since the very early days. Our legal system makes it very easy for movie studio lawyers to quickly shut down an offending web site located in the U.S., and I am a very cautious person who wants to be around for a while, and have no interest in abusing the rights of others. I am also very easy to find . . . . I am a very public person with my face on every page of the web site, and a contact link on every page of the web site, and if you look at the 'meet Jimbo' page you can even easily discover my cell phone number. The movies that have been here for years now are still here because they have no current legal owner or legal guardian.
If you find an error or factual mistake, please use the contact page to let me know so that I can correct it for everyone else. This web site attempts to celebrate the efforts of every actor from the first decades of motion pictures - not just the stars - because like a grand stew, every actor adds a unique flavor to the film, and without any of them the movie would not be the same. If you are one of these actors, or a friend or family member of an actor, please send me any anecdotes and stories that you know about any of them, and I will gladly add them to the site to enrich our knowledge about that actor or the movie they played in.
