Moto, Mister. Mister Moto was created by John P. Marquand (Bill Price) and appeared in five story serials, six novels and story collections, and seven movies from 1935 to 1965, beginning with “No Hero” (Saturday Evening Post, Mar. 30, 1935).

I.O. Moto is Japan's top intelligence agent and (in the films) detective. He is soft-spoken, very polite, and relatively modest about himself, although he is, more properly, a modest man with much to be immodest about. He has a wide range of skills, is multi-lingual, has studied abroad, is very bright and insightful, and is an expert in judo, being capable of killing an enemy with very little difficulty.
