Englishmen race to find the tomb of Genghis Khan before the sinister Fu Manchu does.
This was the last in a long cycle of Oriental roles for Myrna Loy.
Is this a friend of your family's?
Fu Manchu: It is not wise to insult your host, Sir Nayland. If it were not the easy way out, I would kill you now.
Genghis Khan's skeleton is clearly a medical school skeleton. The removable top of the skull is very noticeable.
In the 1970's, "Mask of Fu Manchu" was cut slightly (by about 2 minutes), removing references deemed particularly offensive to the Asian-American community (including several racial remarks and an extended version of the famous whipping scene). It is actually this cut version which MGM/UA released in the early 1990's on videotape, although the deleted segments were restored for the print of "Mask of Fu Manchu" used for the later laserdisc release "MGM Horror Classics," and the more recent DVD release.
