DescriptionDrums of Fu Manchu (Republic, 1940). Three Sheet (41.25" X 79").
Widely considered one of the greatest serials ever filmed, this classic chapterplay stars Henry Brandon as the insidious Dr. Fu Manchu, the evil genius and mad scientist created by author Sax Rohmer. In this exciting serial, Fu Manchu seeks the keys that will unlock the tomb of Genghis Khan, thus fulfilling a prophecy he believes will allow him to rule the world. Directed by Republic's team supreme - William Witney and John English - this serial is somewhat unique in that it actually stresses the mystery elements of the story, rather than relying purely on slam-bang action, but never skimps on the chilling cliffhangers. It's Heritage's first time to offer this brilliant three sheet, which has been professional touchup to the folds, a few minor chips in the borders and folds, and a very small hole in the upper left background. Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
