The daughters of leading scientists and industrialists are kidnapped, and these scientists are then quick to act strangely and all start working for Wireless International - now if that doesn't suggest a conspiracy, what does? Of course, Scotland Yard's Nayland Smith (Douglas Wilmer) is quick to take on the case, and quick to suspect Fu Manchu (Christopher Lee) - and he's absolutely right of course.

Fu Manchu you have to know needs all those scientists' and industrialists' expertise to build himself remote controlled bombs to eventually blow up all major cities, and to demonstrate his power, he threatens to blow up the Windsor Castle. And while Smith and friends do everything to evacuate and protect Windsor Castle, where the royals are living, Fu Manchu is blowing up the Windsor Castle, the excursion boat.

Smith soon gets a handle on Fu Manchu though, after the villain has kidnapped Marie (Marie Versini), daughter of professor Lenz (Joseph Fürst), and when Fu Manchu tries to get his hands on Lenz through her, Smith has him substituted by Franz (Heinz Drache), her fiancé.

Soon, Smith tracks down Fu Manchu's trail to somewhere in Africa and storms his underground headquarters with the French Foreign Legion while Marie and Franz start a rebellion within Fu Manchu's realm - all that while Fu Manchu himself tries to blow up an arms conference in London via remote control.

In the end, all the good guys get away, while Fu Manchu's headquarters are blown up because Smith had his remote control signal jammed. Fu Manchu gets away though ...

Howard MArion Crawford returns as Smith's sidekick Dr Petrie, Tsai Chin as Fu Manchu's daughter Lin Tang.


The second of Harry Alan Towers' Fu Manchu-films, this is pretty much your routine Euro-espionage fare: A pan-European cast of actors ranging from the rather stiff to the actually quite good, special effects work that's not necessarily up to its requirements, a plot full of elements from 1930's pulp novels (when several of the actual Fu Manchu-novels were written), scientific inventions that are not necessarily rooted in actual fact, and a bunch of sexy girls. All this, carried by an unimaginative directorial effort, doesn't necessarily result in a good film of course - but a fgun piece of nostalgia nevertheless.
