Drums of Fu Manchu (15 Chapters) Henry Brandon, Robert Kellard D: William Witney/John English A dacoit knife that nearly misses British investigator Nayland Smith’s head tips him off that megalomaniac Fu Manchu and his evil Si Fan society are in California.
27/01/2010 I guess the title of this post is self-explanatory — a complete and top condition positive print struck from the original negative of DRUMS OF FU MANCHU in the 1960s or 70s has been recently offered to the Squadron for restoration and DVD release.
15/03/1940 Directed by John English, William Witney.
With Henry Brandon, William Royle, Robert Kellard, Gloria Franklin.
The nefarious Dr.
Fu Manchu searches for the keys to the tomb of Genghis Khan, in order to fulfill a prophecy that will enable him to conquer the world.
His nemesis, Dr.
Nayland Smith, and his associates fight to keep the evil doctor from getting his hands on the keys.
31/01/2010 The question is, what might be more desirable — a bootleg of DRUMS OF FU MANCHU that you decide you can copy and sell on your own, or a new DVD of the serial transferred from the original.
A lot would say the latter but there are still those who would rather have the instant gratification of the former, like coin collectors who mint their own.
11/12/2013 As a general serial rule, treasure hunts in far-flung and ferocious realms are always more exciting than battles with criminals in the big city#but Drums of Fu Manchu reverses this truism; the expedition into the Asian hills, entertaining as it is, is not quite as distinctive or thrilling as the skirmishes with Fu Manchu #s minions in.
Drums of Fu Manchu (1940) is a 15-chapter Republic movie serial based on the character created by Sax Rohmer.
Though using the title of the ninth novel in the series, it actually is based on numerous elements from throughout the series to that point, cherry-picked by the writers.
