‘Mr Wong in Chinatown’

'Mr Wong in Chinatown'

Lotta’s erection! Built in 1875, an extension had been added to the famous Lotta’s Fountain at Kearny and Market by the time of this scene from ‘Mr Wong in Chinatown’ (1939). Boris Karloff playing the Chinese detective was about as convincing as Jackie Chan playing Sherlock Holmes, and the series did poorly. The fountain was restored to it’s initial height, and moved back to it’s original location in 1999.
