Castle of Fu Manchu

Assignment Istanbul

1968

Jess Franco
Director

Nefarious Fu Manchu plots world domination with assist from the ailing Dr. Heracles who badly needs a heart transplant.

Bottom of the Fu Manchu barrel courtesy of low budget and seemingly non-existant script. The technicolor heart transplant distirbed me greatly as a child...but now you can see the blunt scalpel complete with special effects tubing courtesy of Blue Undergrounds gorgeous restoration - the effect is not the same.
Worse, bits of stock footage are thieved from the classic Titanic movie, A Night to Remember!

Disappointing movie. Great set of interviews with Franco, Chris Lee, Tsai Chin and Harry Alan Towers as a DVD extra.
