Thank You, Mr. Moto is the second in the Mr. Moto series of films, released in 1937 and directed by Norman Foster. It is loosely based on the book of the same name by the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist John P. Marquand, and stars Peter Lorre as the Japanese detective Kentaro Moto. The film opens in the Gobi Desert, with Moto and his traveling companions settling down to sleep. After Moto kills a man who attempts to steal a scroll from him, it is revealed that this is one of seven scrolls which give directions to the hidden grave of Genghis Khan. A deadly and murderous race is soon on between Moto and a number of other treasure hunters including Colonel Tchernov (Sig Ruman), Herr Koerger (Sidney Blackmer) and Eleanor Joyce (Jayne Regan) to be the first to find the grave and the treasure it contains. The hunters must also compete with the Chung family, who seek to safeguard the tomb.
