The Silver Buddha
Our hero Dr Petrie is caught by evil Fu-Manchu and imprisoned near the British Museum, where he risks a daring escape, high above the London streets
While sleuth Nayland Smith visits the British Museum, Dr Petrie is captured by the evil Dr Fu-Manchu in a Museum Street antique shop. The Devil Doctor reveals a plan to smuggle Petrie into China, to join Fu-Manchu’s growing band of shackled scientist slave workers. But with the help of his beloved Karamaneh, Petrie takes a chance on a vertiginous aerial escape...
This episode of the popular adventure serial contains precious location footage of the British Museum, and of the shops nearby; and features some very impressive - and decidedly dangerous looking - stunt sequences.
