Black Dragon of Manzanar is a 100-minute abridgment of the 1943 Republic series G-Men vs. the Black Dragon, reedited for television in 1966. Set during World War II the 15- episode serial concerns the smashing of the Japanese Black Dragon Society. American investigator Rod Cameron and British secret agent Constance Worth join forces to thwart the activities of Black Dragon leader Haruchi (played by Filipino actor Nino Pipitone). Chinese secret service operative Chang (Roland Got) poses as a Japanese to infiltrate the Society. After many life-threatening perils, the good guys send the Japanese villains to their Honorable Ancestors. Chock-full of the least convincing Japanese characters you're ever likely to see (most are Caucasian stunt men!), Black Dragon of Manzanar nonetheless scores with its breathless action content.
