The 'real' face of Fu Manchu
I was surprised to learn that the name Eric Rohmer was a pseudonym, and that he took his last name from Sax Rohmer. Of course, he's not the only French New Wave director to ackowledge influence from an American pulp fiction writer...
The man who created Fu Manchu.
Imagine a person, tall, lean and feline, high-shouldered, with a brow like Shakespeare and a face like Satan, ... one giant intellect, with all the resources of science past and present ... Imagine that awful being, and you have a mental picture of Dr. Fu-Manchu...
