Boston Blackie's Chinese Venture is a 1949 Drama directed by Seymour Friedman, starring Chester Morris, in this film, the last of Columbia's Boston Blackie fourteen pictures. Richard Lane, who plays Boston's long-suffering Inspector Farraday, was the only other character in all fourteen of the Boston Blackie movies. George E. Stone, playing Blackie's sidekick, his dim-witted cronie The Runt, was not in the first or last film but was in all the others. Charles Wagenheim played The Runt in the first film and Sid Tomack in the last.
