Faced with revealing the machine’s secrets or allowing his family to die a horrible death at the hands of Roxor, Regent’s only hope lies with the intervention of his brother-in-law, the be-turbaned yogi and magician Chandu, who has the power to make men see what is not there ‘even unto a gathering of twelve times twelve’.

Grand Mystical Adventure
Based upon the radio show of the same name this film is the story of Chandu,, real name Frank Chandler, a white man taught the secrets of the yogis. Chandler has been set loose to save his family who has been put into peril by the evil Roxor, played by Bela Lugosi (who not long after would play Chandu himself in a movie serial).

Containing more action than most serials this is a true popcorn movie that moves pretty much from start to finish. There are dangers aplenty as Chandu struggles to save the world.

The film is near perfect, but suffers from a couple of small flaws. The first is the over use of the small man that Biggles sees each time he drinks. Chandu enchants Biggles to prevent him from drinking and its used a couple of time too many. The second is that toward the end the effects look weak. The underwater sequence is terrible, and the use of rear screen as people flee the temple is awful.

Still this is a movie to sit down with a big bucket of popcorn and enjoy.

9 out of 10.

Approach this in the right way and a high old time is guaranteed
Wow, they really knew how to make ’em back in the grand old days of Hollywood. This is the sort of film – step up Kingdom of The Crystal Skull, I mean you – that would be ruined by CGI and uninventive action these days. But if you leave your cynical side at home Chandu will astonish and delight you.

And that’s in spite of a leaden performance from Edmund Lowe in the title role. Lowe plays Frank Chandler – alias Chandu The Magician, a Caucasian learner of the mystic secrets of Tibetan Yogis. I can’t help thinking he proved the inspiration for Marvel Comics’ Doctor Strange; Chandu even has some sort of Astral Self that comes in handy during his adventure. An evil scientist named Roxor, played in OPERATIC villain mode by Bela Lugosi, is determined to wrest the secret of a death ray from Chandu’s brother, attempting to kidnap his family to force the silly soul (who on Earth would want to invent a death ray in the first place?) into revealing the secret of its operation.

At times this film is almost a lesson for modern-day superhero movies in the imaginative use of powers. In a pre-Hayes Code sequence Chandler’s niece is about to be sold into slavery in Cairo (not exactly politically correct these days) when our mystic hero stages a brilliantly inventive rescue. There’s a touch of Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood and Steven Strange about it all. All I know is that it works beautifully.

Some lavish sets, pleasing miniatures and glossy cinematography only add to the effect. There’s a few poor back projection process shots near the end, but this doesn’t spoil things. In all this is a terrific adventure movie, with more old-time thrills and serial escapes than many a current blockbuster.
