Boston Blackie's Chinese Venture

Boston Blackie's Chinese Venture is a 1949 mystery film directed by Seymour Friedman, starring Chester Morris, in this film, the last of Columbia's Boston Blackie fourteen pictures (1941–49). Richard Lane, who plays Boston's long-suffering Inspector Farraday, was the only other character in all fourteen of the Boston Blackie films. George E. Stone, playing Blackie's sidekick, his dim-witted crony The Runt, was not in the first or last film but was in all the others. Charles Wagenheim played The Runt in the first film and Sid Tomack in the last.[1][2]
