For one whole United States Dollar, I got "Mr. Moto Takes a Vacation"    with Peter Lorre. 

There is a cool bonus feature "The return of Mr. Moto" with Henry Silva reprising the role 20 years later.   I was pleasantly surprised by this bonus movie.   While it did try to cash in on the Spy craze after the 007 franchise took the world by storm, this film didn't catch anyone's attention to make more sadly (IMHO)   

Henry Silva did not need to have his eyes taped back to give an Asian slant. Since it was filmed in Black and white, he did not need makeup either.   The best bit is, Mr. Silva did not resort to a cheap Asian accent for his performance. In fact, only once does "Mr. Moto's " Japanese" ancestry rise up; when he has to pass off as a Japanese ambassador.  Otherwise, he's just another Interpol agent who happens to look Japanese.   

For an action film, there is not a whole lot of action, There are fight scenes, but they are stagnant visually speaking.   The script is okay.  There are parts where it shines...like the villain:  Drago; a former Nazi agent who is rather brutal for a 1965 Hollywood type villain goes.

My roommate got a copy of a Dr. Who set with episodes written by Douglas (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy fame) Adams.  He was the show runner for a few seasons.   The ones he wrote (at least on this set) were terrible.

My roommate is the Dr Who fan..and he admits its unwatchable.

Douglass Adams wasn't the show Runner he was one of the writers.  Shada was one the stories he wrote that they never finished cause of a strike at the time but it's a damn good story. but i wonder which one you are talking about? but you are right there are ones he wrote that are good and than there are ones that are just plain awful.

I can't recall exactly if the whole plante was space pirates or.. I can't recall.. the story was a jumbled mess. Nothing made sense.

Adams wrote THE PIRATE PLANET for Season 16(and it IS awful), for Season 17 he was the Script Editor for the whole season as well as contributing scripts CITY OF DEATH and SHADA.
