Unless you're into film history, stay away from this thing!
The plot is slapdash. The hero blithely drops from a flying plane, onto the roof of a building. ("Oof!") A la Jack Armstrong, there's a completely unexplained escape. A homing pigeon finds its way to a moving ship at sea. Obscure clues are identified immediately against all odds while obvious clues go ignored for centuries. Poison gas conveniently appears ex machina. As in The Golden Sea, the pacing is haphazard.
(Poor Ed Wood! How can we bash the guy when he probably learned his "art" from films such as this by Fritz Lang?)
BTW, in this film, unlike in The Golden Sea, some of the characters amazingly don't look German (though for some reason our American hero very much dresses like a German; more so than in The Golden Sea); instead, the non-Teutonic Chinese are made to look like vermin.
