Sumuru Posterart
Towers of London (Sumuru) Ltd. presented a German financed production featuring Sax Rohmer's creation and forming a trilogy (with Lindsay Shonteff's THE MILLION EYES OF SUMURU and Jess Franco's THE GIRL FROM RIO) of SUMURU films produced and scripted by Harry Alan Towers (aka "Peter Welbeck") over a period of 36 years.

This 2003 epic was lensed in South Africa and brought the character into the 21st Century. The title character was embodied by former model Alexandra Kamp (probably not a coincidence that CAMP was the term most reviewers who saw this futuristic romp used to describe it). Where's Shirley Eaton when you really need her?!
