Chandu The Magician (1932) Megalomaniac and would-be world dominator Roxor has kidnaped Robert Regent, along with his death ray invention, in hopes of using it to degenerate humanity into mindless brutes, leaving himself as Earth's supreme intelligence. 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'.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Yogi Teacher: Thou has done well, my son. To few, indeed, of thy race have the secrets of the yogi been revealed. Chandu - aka Frank Chandler: To you, my teacher, I express my thanks. What more can I learn? Yogi Teacher: Nothing now. The world needs thee. Go forth in the youth and strength and conquer the evil that threatens Mankind.
  • Princess Nadji: Have you been married since you last saw me? Chandu - aka Frank Chandler: That's one feat of magic that requires a beautiful assistant.
  • Chandu - aka Frank Chandler: I love the looks of the desert but hare the taste of it.
  • Roxor: [to Abdullah] If Nadji opposes me, and you serve me well, there shall be a new slave in your harem.
  • Princess Nadji: So, unless my people will join in making you a modern pharaoh, you will annihilate them? Roxor: [laughing] Pharaoh? I shall be greater than any pharaoh! Civilization and all its works shall be destroyed! Men shall return to savagery following only one supreme intelligence... me!
Movie Trivia:
  • This movie was based on "Chandu the Magician," a radio show that was airing at the time. Chandu was the basis for many of the later magician characters, including DC's Sandor the Mystic and Marvel Comics's Dr. Strange.
  • Nigel De Brulier's yogi was the model for the sorcerer in Disney's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."
  • In the subsequent Chandu serial, producers promoted Lugosi to the role of the magician-yogi.
  • Henry B. Walthall replaced Ralph Morgan as Regent.
  • Cost-conscious Fox studios paid $40,000 for the rights to Chandu. Lugosi received $2500, Ware $1250, Hammond $100, Walthall $1000, and Stuart $300.
