Empire Of The Petal Throne Double Feature Of Inspiration

She 1935  

The Thief Of Baghdad 1940 

 Add Bonus  
The Mask Of Fu Manchu 1932

Over the weekend I got a chance to catch these classics again.. The sets simply scream Empire Of The Petal Throne to me. The movies were a product of their time but the awesome set pieces, plots, & Orientalism of them suggests at least 3 or 4 adventure possibles. These films come from a time when racist views were a part of the cultural landscape. Then again so were the pulp magazines of the time as well. Please keep this in mind when viewing these cultural relics from a bygone age.
