Fu Manchu, the 1938 serial

Leave a comment

Here’s something pretty unusual – a restored first episode of Drums of Fu Manchu – the original, long lost 1938 movie serial, featuring Henry Brandon in the role of the Yellow Peril himself.
Note how the titles specify the story was “suggested” by Sax Rohmer‘s works.
