Movie poster for the 1955 film, the English version of an Indian film "Presented by Lloyd Friedgen and Rajkamal Kalamandir Studio", which was produced at the height of anti-Communism in the West. An Indian doctor aids a band of anti-Communist guerillas in China, and works against the development of germ warfare by Communist doctors. The huge hypodermic needle being wielded in the image at lower right of the poster hints at the tenor of the movie: "Swooping down from the North they created a brutal reign of terror! There were 5,000,000 innocent victims in the shame story of our time!" Item #49590
