Chop! Fooey!

A black belt, sleuth Moto looked natty
As he practiced verboten karate
But he stayed out of trouble
With the aid of a double
Then he'd snack and he'd bloat and turn fatty.

Peter Lorre starred as judo expert and international law enforcement agent Mr. Moto in eight motion pictures made between 1937 and 1939. All of Moto's fight scenes were staged and performed by stuntman and double Harvey Parry.
