When oilmen Ricardo Cortez and Gordon Oliver squared off over a rich Chinese reserve─and the attentions of missionary Beverly Roberts, they didn't anticipate that all would become the prisoners of bandit warlord Boris Karloff in "West of Shanghai" (1937). The discovery of a corpse on an Army base shines the spotlight of suspicion on a civilian employee/ex-embezzler (Karloff), in "The Invisible Menace" (1938). Eddie Craven, Marie Wilson, Cy Kendall, Regis Toomey co-star. And when compassionate surgeon Karloff treats an escapee from "Devil's Island" (1939), he finds himself sent to the infamous French penal colony, and the nonexistent mercies of commandant James Stephenson. Nedda Harrigan co-stars. 181 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
