Tonight on TCM, as part of the “Asian Images on Film” series this month come three great “Yellow Menace” mysteries! First up, Lon Chaney and Anna May Wong star in the rare 1927 silent classic Mr. Wu.
And later, Boris Karloff dons the eye make-up and crazy nails in The Mask of Fu Manchu (’32), followed by Christopher Lee’s immortal portrayal of the sinister Chinese warlord in The Castle of Fu Manchu (’68) directed by Jess Franco.
As usual, check TCM for more info and show times in your area. And for more "Yellow Peril" fun, head over to The Hairy Green Eyeball now!
UPDATE: Conflicting info ---according to my satellite schedule, Castle of Fu Manchu is actually NOT airing (despite what it says in my TCM subscription guide.) Instead they're showing Targets starring Boris Karloff.
