Boris Karloff takes one his most celebrated cinematics turn as the diabolical fiend Dr. Fu Manchu, and Myrna Loy plays his exotic daughter in this 1932 cult horror classic. This time, the evil Fu Manchu patiently awaits the discovery of Genghis Khan’s tomb. For he is certain that possession of Khan’s mask and sword will enable him to rule the East and lead it to victory over the hated Western world. When British scientists in the Gobi Desert discover the tomb, Fu captures and tortures them in his elaborate Torture Garden, hoping they will take him to the treasure he craves. But an unexpected traitor has other plans for the doctor. Based on Sax Rohmer’s original story “The Mask of Fu Manchu” is “fast moving and humorous” (Halliwell’s Film Guide) and full of pre-code suspense! The film is presented in its original, uncut theatrical release version as first seen in 1932.

I'm pretty sure that the DVD was the full version as well. A much wanted title. I was wondering if political correctness would prove to be awkward for this title, but when Tarzan The Ape Man was released, I started to think that it might happen. Hopefully we'll get The Teahouse Of The August Moon (1956) soon. Anyway, lots of camp fun.

Looking forward to this one. MGM pre code horror with some HD merrie Melodie’s thrown in for good measure. What’s not to like?!

The DVD and laser disc also contained the 68 minute "full" version. The VHS had the shorter version.
