Untrue Detective


Moto's meek, an inveterate wimp
Just a weak and non-threatening shrimp
But the sleuth plays pretend
And in truth his foes end
With a shriek and regrettable limp.

Peter Lorre plays the dummy in Mr. Moto's Last Warning (Norman Foster; 1939), hiding his deadly expertise in martial arts.
