MR MOTO Movies
Mr. Moto is a fictional Japanese secret agent created by the American author John P. Marquand. He appeared in
six novels by Marquand published between 1935 and 1957. Marquand initially created the character for the
Saturday Evening Post, which was seeking stories with an Asian hero after the death of Charlie Chan's creator
Earl Derr Biggers.
Mr. Moto has been portrayed as an international law enforcement agent. These include eight motion pictures
starring Peter Lorre between 1937 and 1939. Unlike the novels, Moto is the central character, a detective with
Interpol, wears glasses (and has no gold teeth), is a devout Buddhist (and good friends with the Chinese monarchy).
He is always impeccably dressed in Western suits. The stories are action-oriented due to Moto’s liberal use of judo
(only hinted at in the novels) and due to his tendency to wear disguises.
