Old public domain serials vs. Big Trouble in Little China. Starring John Wayne as Jack Burton, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi as Lo Pan, with cameos appearances by Lon Chaney Jr., Herman Brix and Noah Beery, Jr.
Many of those may be available for streaming or download on archive.org. The background image for the opening and closing title cards is a slightly darkened detail from an etching titled "Dark Alley" by John Winkler, 1920. The creeky, attempted Chinese-sounding music from the start and end are taken from "Shadow of Chinatown". Most of the rest of the music and audio are taken from the actual Big Trouble in Little China (1986). I'd have prefered to use Thirties incidental music throughout the thing, but some of the best lines from the original BTILC had Eighties soundtrack music running through it, so I had to roll with it.
