"Shadow of Chinatown" 15 episodes of xenophobia



Bela Lugosi versus a Tarzan who was an Olympic Gold Medalist, Bruce Bennett. "Shadow of Chinatown" is a poverty row serial that lasted 15 episode. There are multiple villains who harass Bruce Bennet, his girlfriend and side kick, Willie Fu.

While it was not intentional, Lugosi's character gets involved with some slapstick on board a cruise ship. This famous Hungarian actor is supposed to be part Chinese and he hates Asians. Lugosi's character has major identity issues and is the "Shadow of Chinatown."
