Cult TV Essentials: The Adventures of Fu Manchu

“Black and white. Life and death. Good and evil. Two sides of a chess game. Two forces of the universe, one magnificent, the other sinister. It is said the Devil plays for men’s souls. So does Dr. Fu Manchu, Satan himself, evil incarnate.”

The Adventures of Fu Manchu only lasted for 13 episodes in 1956 but for those who have seen those episodes, the show remains a favorite.

Every episode opened with Fu Manchu and Nayland Smith playing a game of chess; Nayland Smith and Dr. Petrie would then foiled Fu Manchu’s latest evil plan, then in the end credits Fu Manchu would be seen breaking a black chess piece!
