Roscoe's rating of the film The Mask of Fu Manchu

Great politically incorrect fun. Karloff has a grand old time here, and so will you. I can't imagine anyone not rooting for Karloff's Fu Manchu to wipe out the terribly stuffy white race, especially as embodied by Lewis Stone. There's some great pre-Code beefcake in the person of the hunky Charles Starrett, too. And Myrna Loy -- how can anyone resist?
