No Mo' Moto

Our Peter craved more variation
(and upgraded remuneration).
He left the Fox lot
For Warners and got
A welcome dis-orientation.

Peter Lorre plays the title Japanese sleuth in Mr. Moto Takes a Vacation (Norman Foster; 1939), one of eight Moto films he starred in at Twentieth Century-Fox. When Lorre left the studio for Warner Brothers, that was the end of the Moto series.
