UPDATE and solution (11 November 2011):
Titlecard of 'The Face of Fu Manchu' (Sharp 1965)
And again Alexander Rabitsch almost immediately recognized the movie the screencap stems from: The Face of Fu Manchu (Sharp 1965), starring Christopher Lee. But he is reluctant to tell us who it is, emerging from the doorway:
 
Opening scene of 'The Face of Fu Manchu' (Sharp 1965)
It’s Christopher Lee, yes, and within the story it seems that it is Dr. Fu Manchu, heading towards his own beheading. Even his arch-enemy Sir Denis Nayland Smith (Nigel Green) believes so. But it isn’t. Rather the sinister Doctor has hypnotized an unnamed Chinese actor who now is executed instead. That’s not too much of a spoiler, because the ruse is quite obvious within the first few minutes of the movie.

      ‘The Face of Fu Manchu’ (Sharp 1965) is the movie, indeed—congratulations! And again I am astounded about the mass of movies you not only have seen, but are able to recall visually, too. Nevertheless, the question remains: Who is emerging from that doorway, and where is he headed to? ;)
