Description :

Hitchcock hero Robert Cummings stars in this exotic British feature from 1967, adapting one of Edgar Wallace's celebrated Commissioner Sanders stories. Directed by ITC stalwart Jeremy Summers and produced by B-movie legend Harry Alan Towers, Five Golden Dragons combines glamorous locations, gorgeous girls, mystery, action and plenty of humour, with Christopher Lee, George Raft and Brian Donlevy among the villainous 'dragons' encountered. The film is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.Bob Mitchell, an American playboy newly arrived in Hong Kong, is the recipient of an enigmatic written message, found on the body of a dead man. The message reads simply: 'Five Golden Dragons'. It is Mitchell's introduction to an illicit gold-trafficking operation, and he soon finds himself in the midst of a power struggle between a secretive global crime syndicate and brutal local mobsters...
