Having mastered teleportation and other mystical powers after studying with Indian yogis for three years, Frank Chandler (Edmund Lowe) returns home. Frank hopes he won't have to use his talents, but his hand is forced when his sister Dorothy's (Virginia Hammond) inventor husband, Robert (Henry B.

    Did you believe that the 1960s Batman teevee series was the first to satirise the hero/adventure format? From the days when people believed that one could learn potent magic in the Far East comes Chandu, with the power to cloud mens' minds (just like The Shadow!). Mostly hokey (like the Batman teevee series!) this effort gains steam when Bela Lugosi is onscreen. The ending's okay too, though much of this is groan worthy.

    A fantastic adventure film from the thirties. Lugosi is great in this movie too. I highly recommend this one.
