    Description

    Drums of Fu Manchu (Republic, 1940). Very Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Chapter 1 -- "Fu Manchu Strikes."
    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. Although backed on linen, this poster did not receive any restoration and only shows a couple of very minor paper lifts in the borders.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
