We continue our month-long look into the world of Dr. Fu Manchu with the next three episodes of the 1939 radio series, The Shadow of Fu Manchu. Ted Osbourne plays Fu Manchu with Hanley Stafford as Nayland Smith and Gale Gordon as Dr. James Petrie.
The Zayat Kiss Part 2 originally aired on May 12, 1939 while Clue of the Pigtail parts 1 and 2 aired on May 15 and 17 of the same year.
For a much more detailed analysis of Fu Manchu on the radio, I recommend you read the January 20, 2012 edition of Martin Grams Blog. Martin is a legend in the field of old time radio history and has written numerous books on various programs, including The Radio Adventures of Sax Rohmer’s Fu Manchu. Both are highly recommended!
Now, grab yourself a drink and listen to the second episode of The Shadow of Fu Manchu, available on my Fu Manchu YouTube playlist.
