    Don Sharp was a great action director and as he proved with Kiss of the Vampire he was no shirker when it came to style and atmosphere either. I'd have to say I think Lee is more of a presence in these films and though he looks menacing the script never gives hm much to do. The real let down for me is Fu's daughter played superbly as a sado-maschocistic bi-sexual sociopath by Loy in the Karloff film and reduced to just another gofer in the later versions

    I think Christopher Lee was worried about having much to do - in case his eye make-up fell off!

    LOL! Maybe we could have had scene were Tsai Chin scolds her honorable father and then schools him in the correct application of eye make-up

    Marvellous, Joe. Face and Karloff's The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932) are I think my favourite films about the deadly doctor. It's a shame the Christopher Lee/Harry Alan Towers series got worse and worse as each film appeared.
