Shadow of Chinatown

Show Summary

Shadow of Chinatown is a classic 1936 fifteen part movie serial. Set in an undisclosed west coast city, it stars horror movie pioneer actor Bela Lugosi as Victor Poten, a crazed chemist hired by Sonya Rokoff, alias "The Dragon Lady" to take out her Chinese trade competition through any means necessary. Hating both the whites and the Chinese, Poten proves to be very successful at what he does, creating evil inventions and utilizing underworld ties to destroy the lives of all who stand in his way. Both the police and his mob rivals are powerless to stop him, and he does as he pleases. Containing early examples of dark humor and exotic locales, Shadow of Chinatown stands out from its contemporary competition. Lugosi's acting is showcased despite the fact that he is playing a one-dimensional character, standing out among his peers in the film. All fifteen parts clock in at just under five hours.
