Prisoner of Dr. Fu Manchu, The (1956) - B&W - 27 min

The LikeTelevision™ classic tv channel proudly presents The Adventures of Dr. Fu Manchu - this episode titled The Prisoner of Dr. Fu Manchu. The evil Doctor Fu Manchu is once again planning to take over the world, and his plan is to kidnap and brainwash an important UN peace activist and make him distrust the USA. Wow - that kind of stuff seems like status quo today. This episode is more humorous than scary, you will enjoy the intense arguments - about peace. Glen Gordon plays the diabolical Dr. Fu Manchu - a non Asian actor who does his level best to be Chinese. He delivers his lines in classic fashion, carefully choosing his phrases with very slow delivery as if he were some ancient Chinese Kung Fu master. Do your best to keep from laughing out loud - but you will fail, because it really is just too funny.

Prisoner of Dr. Fu Manchu, The
Directed by - Franklin Adrean

(1956) - B&W - 27 min
While most folks think that Mike Myers' series of Austin Powers movies is solely based on the James Bond brand, it sure looks like he was very much inspired by this old 1956 TV show. Dr. Evil speaks a lot like Dr. Fu Manchu, who also has an evil mini me sidekick (just like Verne Troyer in Austin Powers). Kolb, played by John George is ready to do whatever Fu Manchu wants. And Fu Manchu also has a terrific female cohort name Karamaneh, played by Laurette Luez. Listen closely and you will see that even Dr. Fu Manchu has a hard time saying her name (it sounds a little different every time - HA). So how do you pronounce her name? Well, it sounds like "car enema" and it really is a pain in the butt to pronounce. For some reason we do not fully understand, everyone here just loved this classic tv gem.

Part one
Intro, B&W, credits, etc. - as always, each Dr. Fu Manchu episode begins with sinister voice over telling you what a bum Dr. Fu is as he plays a game of chess. In this episode, The Man of Dr. Fu Manchu gets hold of Betty Leonard and puts her under his spell with a blinking light. The post hypnotic suggestion will get her to poison famed Asian emissary of peace Dr. Hugh Yan, who has been sent to the USA to help solve a world crisis.

Part two
The world will certainly fall into total chaos unless Hugh Yan can solve the world crisis and sign the peace traty offered by the US. Good thing Sir Lester Matthews is on the case. Will Dr. Fu Manchu's plot for a new global world war succeed? Check it out, brainwashing and thought control in the hands of crazy mad evil geniuses - circa 1956.
