Moral: don't accept strange gifts from dying men
12 August 2018 | by kekseksaSee all my reviews

A piece of pre-Hitchcockian orientalist flummery in which the McGuffin - the Indian god of the title - is a small figure given to a doctor by a dying Hindu. The usual sinister turbaned types come in search of it....

Intersting from the point of view of film history is the fact that it includes a scene of a man telephoned by his wife only to hear her being attacked, a trope made famous by André de Lorde's 1901 play Au téléphone and itself the subject, with variations, of many films including Angoisse terrible (1905), Le Médecin du chåteau (1908), The Lonely Villa (1909) and Suspense (1913). Here it is only an incidental element.

All is not quite as it seems and the ending, which I shall not reveal, is suprisingly culturally sensitive.
