Edit
Trivia Filmed in December 1971, the first Christmas for Peter Cushing since the February 14 death of his beloved wife Helen. Sir Christopher Lee's family made it as warm an affair as possible for Cushing, who would grieve for his lost wife for the remainder of his life, often playing roles that mirrored his own sadness. Despite the freezing working conditions and "abominable" food, this movie provided one of the few co-starring roles where the two actors got to work in unison, rather than opposing one another, with Cushing getting the most amusing lines.

Goofs The opening credits say the movie takes place in Peking, but all the railroad station sets have signs that say "Shanghai" in Chinese. The cast's dialogue also refers to their train trip starting in Shanghai. See more »
