The Snark Crystal

In the crystal Frank Chandler is peering 
At the villain, who's nasty and sneering
But this hero and yogi
Is a zero, no Bogie
So it's him, not the bad guy we're jeering.

Dull Edmund Lowe's heroic Chandler/Chandu pales before the colorful villainy of Bela Lugosi's Roxor. Chandu the Magician (William Cameron Menzies, Marcel Varnel; 1932). That's Nigel De Brulier as Chandu's yogi/teacher.
