The Mystery Of Dr. Fu Manchu - Episode 2: The West Case

Featured image

When Smith and Petrie learn that an inventor (who's prone to fits of overacting) has been heavily drugged with hashish by a lovely lady he met at The Oriental Club, they waste no time and exit the scene, racing to the club to “investigate”. Smith and Petrie may not be as funny as Cheech and Chong, but they're just as clueless.

Adapted from chapters 18-21 of The Mystery of Dr. Fu Manchu (UK)/The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu (US) (1913), the first novel in the Dr. Fu Manchu series.
