Peter Sellers gets to play both hero and bad guy at the same time in this comedy variation on Sax Rohmer's infamous stories of Asian super-villian Fu Manchu. The 168-year-old Fu Manchu (Sellers) is starting to run out of the youth-preserving formula that has kept him alive and kicking for the past eight or so decades, and he decides it's high time he made up some more. However, the list of ingredients includes a few items you can't usually get at your corner drug store, and Fu and his minions

Sad, sad end to Peter Sellers' great movie career. Lackluster at best.
Another movie that wastes Sellers.
For the sake of the late, great, brilliant Peter Sellers, let's all just forget this movie even exists.
Improves with age and comparison to newer junk
