Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 29 min.
In this only surviving episode of action-adventure serial Dr Sin Fang| Lt John Byrne and Bill Riggers are on the hunt for the criminal doctor| who is hell-bent on locating a lost ‘sacred seal’. A trader hoping to make a quick buck on the seal is lured to Fang’s lair| where he and Riggers are held prisoner in Fang’s torture cage. Only Byrne’s fiancée| Betty Harbray| can save the day. Dr. Sin Fang borrowed many of the performers (and plot conceits) from the hugely successful Fu-Manchu serials. Producer Fred Paul had played Nayland Smith in The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu and went on to direct The Further Mysteries of Dr. Fu Manchu. Star Harry Agar Lyons brings much of Fu-Manchu to his portrayal of the lesser-known| but equally evil| Sin Fang. This serial was made on a much lower budget than Fu-Manchu and only ran to six parts - this was the fifth. This video is part of the Orphan Works collection.
