The Mask of Fu Manchu Quotes

Boris Karloff as Fu Manchu

  • (Boris Karloff) "You've read about this, Barton: the torture of the bell: it never stops. Minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day. Seems harmless, doesn't it? Just a bell ringing. But the percussion and the repercussion of sound against your eardrums will soften and destroy them until the sound is magnified a thousand times."
  • (Boris Karloff) "You can't move. You can't sleep. You will be frantic with thirst. You will be unspeakably foul. But here you will lie, day after day, until you tell."
  • (Boris Karloff) "Why, my dear Sir Nayland Smith, I will show the sword myself; just before I dispatch you to your cold, sacred, Christian paradise."
  • (Boris Karloff) "You can't fool Fu Manchu."
  • (Charles Starrett) "That's the sword we found in the tomb."

  • (Boris Karloff) "And at sunrise tomorrow, as my chieftains are assembled in the temple below, you two, and your compatriot, Sir Nayland Smith, will have the pleasure of entering your Christian heaven together. It will be your honor to be the first white martyrs to perish at the hands of the new Genghis Kahn. I congratulate you."
  • (Boris Karloff) "This serum, distilled from dragon's blood, my own blood, the organs of different reptiles, and mixed with the magic brew of the sacred seven herbs, will temporarily change you into the living instrument of my will. You will do as I command."
  • (Boris Karloff) "I have brought you here for great tidings. I am the most unfortunate of men. I have no son to follow me. Therefore, in shame, I ask you to receive a message from my ugly and insignificant daughter. Speak, my daughter."
  • (Myrna Loy) "I have seen a vision, the prophecy is about to be fulfilled. Genghis Khan, masked in his plate of gold, bearing the scimitar that none but he could ever wield, comes back to us. I've seen a vision of countless hordes swarming to recapture the world. I've seen them victorious. I've heard the shouts of the dead and the dying drowned by the victorious cries of our people. Genghis Khan comes back. Genghis Khan leads the East against the world."

Myrna Loy as Fah Lo See

  • (Myrna Loy) "Did you send for me, my father?"

  • (Lewis Stone) "Exactly, of course in your hands these things would be merely interesting archaeological specimens to go into British Museum, but should Fu Manchu put that mask across his wicked eyes and take that scimitar into his bony, cruel hands, all Asia rises. He'll declare himself Genghis Khan come to life again. And that, my friend, is what you have got to prevent. You must find that grave, and you must be the first to find it. And you must bring those pretty things back to England."

  • (Lawrence Grant) "Thanks, old friend."
  • (Lawrence Grant) "You're Fu Manchu, aren't you?"

Karen Morley as Sheila

  • (Karen Morley) "Terrence?"

Until, of course, she tires of him."
  • (Karen Morley) "You yellow beast."
  • (Karen Morley) "You hideous yellow monster. You've got your cursed sword and mask. What more can you want of us? Do you want to destroy us all?"

Charles Starrett as Terrence Granville

  • (Charles Starrett) "Nayland, we're done in. We're exhausted. We can't go tonight. Why, think of Sheila."

  • (Lewis Stone) "We're in the enemies country now and a wise enemy."

  • (Charles Starrett) "Quite right, Mac."
