Title: The Brides of Fu Manchu (Don Sharp, 1966)
Post by: Jonny on 07 Dec 2012 - 21:42
Watched this one for the first time the other day via the Warner Bros double bill DVD that has CHAMBER OF HORRORS on it too.


Pretty ropey to be honest. The geezer who plays Nayalnd Smith was rubbish, he delivered his lines whilst looking away from the person he was speaking to in a manner that annoyed me.


Nice to see a young Burt Kwouk pre Cato Fong! I bloody love Burt Kwouk!  ::)

He's cool, pops up all over the place, I recently saw him in an episode of Shirley's World.

I once had a great chat with Burt Kwouk in a Soho pub about Tsui Hark's wire-work!
